Fundraising in Memory of Dad
Dad passed away on January 26th of this year after a warrior's battle with pancreatic cancer. He was diagnosed in September of 2019... Since that day we have spent our time supporting him in his battle, while doing our best to to keep him smiling, comfortable and supported. We Love You Dad.!
There is currently no means of early detection for pancreatic cancer... and we sincerely hope that our efforts will, in some small way, help to one day change that. My brother Jeff and I have decided to create this fundraiser to honor Dad and to help Project Purple in their efforts to do just that.
We have decided on breaking away from the larger sponsored fundraising rides and are fundraising on our own. Our "KovBro's Pedal for Purple & Dad" Charity Ride will raise money directly for Project Purple. Your support will hopefully help to find a means of early detection and a cure, as well as support the families going through the challenges and fears surrounding this terrible form of cancer ...
Fundraising directly via this page, insures that 98% of your support will go directly to the folks at Project Purple. We feel really good about this.
Like our 2019 fundraising ride to battle cancer, this will be a self supported bicycle journey of somewhere around 250 miles. It will involve carrying what we need on our bikes as we are camping out along the way.
The fact that we can be helpful to others in the process of pedaling our bikes is something we are both thankful for. Considering how often we like to stop and take photos as we pedal, we are not certain how many days this trip will actually take... working together out on the trails will afford us of plenty of time to figure it out as we go... and also figure out why we're lost. Again..!!!
We promise to keep our supporters updated on social media throughout this journey.. the good, the bad and the ugly.
- Thank you all so much for your donations and support.. and for taking the time to visit our fundraising page!
We love ya's, -John & Jeff Kovach - The #KovBros
