Let's Go Fight Cancer
Don’t we ALL know someone – a family member, friend, colleague, parent, child – who has been affected by cancer? I know I do. Too many. Over and over again, we see people we know and love being forced to face the challenge of cancer diagnosis and treatment. So what can I do? What can WE do? Well...
What I’m going to do is ride in The Prouty Ultimate again. On July 12th and 13th, I'll be pedaling 200 miles to raise money for Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC). July is months away, but it's time to act now.
The Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation has generously offered matching funds again this year. In fact, the $3 to $1 match for early donations created such an outpouring of support for Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center that the entire match allocation for 2019 ($1,000,000 !!) had been gifted by the midnight, February 14, deadline. Amazing!
For those of you whose generous donations helped make that happen, THANK YOU! It's all of you who make this event so successful and so gratifying for me.
But here's some good news: When Dorothy Byrne learned that her entire match had been distributed in just two and a half weeks, she felt bad for those weren't able to take advantage of it, so...she has offered to match any donation, $1 for $1, through 5pm, Friday, March 1. Amazing! Thank you, Dorothy!
So, if you missed out on the earlier matching opportunity, here's another chance to multiply your gift, providing twice the funding for cutting-edge cancer research and support for families and individuals undergoing cancer treatment. Please donate now to take advantage of the match and double the impact of your donation. If you've contributed before, I hope you’ll support me again. If you haven’t, there's no better time than now.
I am super grateful for all the donations I’ve received from so many of you over the years. Thank you, thank you, thank you! But I’m just the rider. Without your financial support, my efforts won’t accomplish anything. I'll do the riding, but I need your support to raise the money.
Make an online donation today – it’s fast, easy and safe. Plus, you'll be making a big difference in an important cause - one that touches everybody.
