Starting on October 5th, Tom and I will join in the 2019 edition of Curt’s Ride to Cure Cancer—a 620-mile bicycle ride along the Florida coast to honor and raise awareness for all those that have been affected by cancer and raise funds for the American Cancer Society. We will depart from Amelia Island on the Georgia-Florida border, the ride will arrive in Key West on October 12, covering 75-115 miles each riding day. This year is the 10th Curt’s ride, it’s our 6th Curt’s Ride and our 5th full length ride of Florida!
Being part of the Curt’s Ride to Cure Cancer Team is something Tom and I treasure. To ride our bicycles along the Florida coast to honor and raise awareness for all those that have been affected by cancer and raise funds for the American Cancer Society is truly one of our annual highlights.
We hate cancer.
But we are celebrating the miracles of health for cancer warriors / survivors: Tom’s Sister Rosemarie; friends: Jon Darr Bradshaw, Jane Daloia, Dori Varounis, Cheryl Thompson, Marlene Williamson and others!
But for every miracle there seems to be a loss. We are also honoring the memory of Heather Gerber, Tom Devine, John Hannigan, Cynette's Aunt Gloria, Dante Mastrosimone, Ida Rozanov, Dr. Bart Kamen and Tom's cousin, "Lefty" Complish.
This is the one and only time a year when we ask for plain old donations of cash to support something. And cancer places some direct hits on family and dear friends, so we need to fight back. We hope you’ll take a moment to make a donation of support as we ride this year. Let us know who you'd like us to honor and we will carry the names of those loved ones as the journey takes place!
About Curt's Ride to Cure Cancer: Curt Ewald was a friend and former classmate from Herndon High School (HHS 1976, Herndon VA). Early in the summer of 2010, Curt was diagnosed with Stage IV adenocarcinoma in the lungs. As Curt prepared for the journeys ahead, he displayed the most amazing outlook on life, was one of the most open and communicative of friends, and showed the most well-balanced understanding of what was before him, of anyone that you could ever know. Curt's insights about his journey were conveyed in his own words in this edition of "Dr. Len's Cancer Blog" on the American Cancer Society web: http://www.cancer.org/AboutUs/DrLensBlog/post/2010/09/04/A-Message-From-Curt.aspx .
