My son and I made a last-minute decision to ride in a 28-mile bike-a-thon this weekend to help raise money to fight cancers in young adults. The event is in honor of an extraordinary 20-year-old man who died in April after a two-year battle with sarcoma.

We need sponsors. If anyone would like to pledge sponsorship of our ride, please send me an e-mail telling me the amount. If I make it all 28 miles, I’ll follow-up afterwards to collect. Please send e-mails to
