Team Peaches (150),
2020 marks the 8th year of riding for the Cure. To date I have ridden well over 1000 miles, and have raised (with the help of my fellow Team Peaches Riders) north of $15000.00! 2020 also marks my 3rd year as a volunteer for the Scenic Shore Executive committee. My role is to make at least a $12000 per year impact. I do this by seeking sponsorship's for the ride. My accomplishments include recruiting Pepsi as the official beverage sponsor, and Emmi Ross as the official cheese sponsor. My impact for 2018 was approximately $12,000 and approximately $15000.00 in 2019.
Team Peaches was formed in 2016 when my daughter Shandie decided to ride the 150 with me. She is now the team captain of our 25 mile team.
We ride in honor of Anyka "Peaches" Johnson. A very courageous young lady. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in December of 2012. With her amazing family (Holli, Jason, Kyler, Alyza & Kenryk) she fought and and ultimately kicked cancers butt. On July 13th she turns 11!
Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Thanks to your support, my efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.
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.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
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!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!
