I ride in honor of my Aunt Grace who passed away from Colon cancer. She brightened up a room with her smile, sweet nature and positivity. She continues to be one of the many influential women in my family that I learn from and admire deeply. I hope to appreciate each day I have with the people in my life now and foster a community of compassion like my Aunt Grace embodied so often. I ride to keep her spirit alive and to inspire hope in the lives of those who have felt or are currently going through the devastating effects of cancer. My bike ride to Alaska will be one of the hardest things I'll ever have to do in my life, but my struggle will be nothing compared to what friends and families go through when a loved one suffers from cancer. I ride for my Aunt Grace, my supporters, and the following ever-growing list of people who have been affected in some sort of way.
Melody St John
Victoria and Davey Newton
Rick Hartmann, Gabi Hadid's Grandfather
Karla Vedan's Grandfather
Estelle Byrnes, Alex Byrne's Grandmother
Fayette, Keith's friend
Thank you for supporting my ride!
