Teal Ride 2017 to Fight Ovarian Cancer
EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2017
Opportunity! This can happen at anytime; well planned or out of the blue. The idea is to seize the moment and make it work.
I joined the Teal Tea Foundation as a Trustee in January 2017. Teal Tea; founded by an ovarian cancer survivor, Jean Shipos, the organization is designed to educate and support all women in the fight against ovarian cancer. I joined because I felt I could add value.
Many of you know my love for bicycling. Its time to use this passion to help make a difference.
On September 15 or 16, 2017(weather) I will do at least a 100 mile ride in one day from the Lehigh Valley to the Atlantic Ocean, most likely Long Branch, NJ. This is a thing I need to do. This disease knows no color, no religion, no social status and no geographic boundaries.
With research, support and education this disease may be detected before it’s too late. Whether it's for a grandmother, mother, sister, wife, aunt, daughter or friend, this one is for the girls.
Today, I start the countdown. I will be sending reminders afterwards. If you care to help, please pledge whatever you can. It's not a race against time, but it could be a journey that saves lives.
Thank you and to God be the Glory
