For the second year in a row, I am joined by my wife, Jordan and several of our good friends in a bicycle tour that in total, raised over $1.6M to fund leukemia research for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Our team, Philly 22, was recognized by LLS last year as the top new fundraising team out of more than 1,300 total riders, raising over $15,000 in our first effort. We have a new goal of surpassing $20,000 and we need your help!! I know I can count on you!
I ride for my Dad, Tom, who has battled Chronic Myloid Leukemia (CML) for nearly a decade. The therapies that saved my Dad are new enough that had he been diagnosed 20 years ago, he would not have made it this far.
The Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour is a two-day, 150 mile, fully-supported cycling event that is open to riders of all ages and abilities. One of Wisconsin's most popular bike rides, the Scenic Shore 150 is the largest locally organized and supported event for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
