This year, hundreds of thousands of people will hear the words "You have cancer." They will be people we know and love. Because nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in some way, we've decided to show our support and make a difference by conducting "Curt's Ride to Cure Cancer" to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving work. Using the links on this page, you can join our fight against cancer by clicking Join our Team or Donate.
Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing cancer. We hope you will help us. Curt's Ride to Cure Cancer is normally a 620-mile bicycle ride along the east coast of Florida, following the route established by the East Coast Greenway. However, due to the current coronavirus situation, this year will be different. Rather than departing from the Georgia-Florida border and riding an average 90 miles each day toward Key West, this year Curt’s Team will be riding the same distance together - apart. We will be having a virtual group ride, wherein each Curt’s Team member will be riding the typical required distance that we would normally cover each day during the Florida ride, but they will be doing it from home, riding through their local towns, trails, and countryside. With a virtual departure from Amelia Island on October 3, 2020, each rider will cover 75-100 miles each day up through our virtual arrival in Key West on October 10. This 620-mile ride will raise funds for the American Cancer Society, and support for all those that have been affected by cancer.
On behalf of all of them, we are asking for your help and support for Curt’s Ride to Cure Cancer. Your contribution will help the American Cancer Society fulfill their mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. And for those that might be local to the ride route and so inclined, it would be great to have you ride along for a day - or for the whole thing! Ride with us and lend your moral support. Or even better, consider becoming a Curt's Ride to Cure Cancer team member and helping with our efforts!
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 .
