Why do you participate in the Ride for Roswell?

I’ve been fighting back against cancer for over 30 years, since I was diagnosed at 3 years old. 30 years later, I am now the caregiver for my mother. I fight because it is necessary, and to create a better tomorrow.

What is your favorite part about Ride weekend?

Riding over your name at the start of the Peloton (knowing the impact of your fundraising), and finishing the ride to a cheering crowd and rolling over your own name amongst a sea of survivors at the finish line? It’s the best emotional roller coaster I’ve ever been on.

What have you been doing to raise funds for the Ride?

To meet my goal each year of riding in the Peloton, I exchange artwork I complete for donations, as well as spreading awareness of my fight online for the world to see.
