I'm Obliteriding to cure cancer faster -- and I need your support!

Three days left! Almost to $2500! I’m looking forward to the ride. In Phoenix trying to stay hydrated.

Almost to $2000. I may increase it again. Amazed at people's generosity. People I barely know have contributed. I guess cancer touches us all in some way.
Out on another training ride. Just past 50 miles as I type this. I think I'll be near 70 for the day by the time I get home.

Now over $1,150. Thanks so much to everyone! Had a great training ride yesterday. 61 miles. Sunny. There's now a Facebook fundraiser as well. Hopefully, I'll add some mileage later today.

I'm super excited to have crossed the $900 mark already. I am lucky to have the support of my family and friends. I just increased my goal. Cancer took much from us this year, and in the years before. This year it took Vonda McIntyre, who was a member of my science book club, a mentor, a fine writer, and the founder of Clarion West. It has touched my family directly this year. A few days ago, I learned another friend has cancer. A few years ago, it took Jay Lake. A few years before that, it took my brother, Russell. I'm ready to be done with it. Are you?
Oh...and I rode 73 miles this weekend. Maybe I'll feel up to changing to the century. Although I'm slow.

Basically, the stock thing. But it's well-written.
This August, beneath Mount Rainier, bald eagles, and an enormous orange banner, I'm joining thousands of people in Seattle to bike, run, walk, and raise money to obliterate cancer.
I'm doing this because I'm ready for a world where no family has to fear this disease. We're making progress, but we have a long way to go: One in three people will still face cancer in their lifetime.
Every Obliteride-raised dollar goes to lifesaving research at Fred Hutch -- and the Hutch won't stop they have cures for all cancers. Already, researchers there are advancing breakthrough treatments, ramping up prevention and diagnosis, and bringing together the best minds in science, tech, and business to save more lives, more quickly.
It's amazing! But bold research takes money -- and that's where we come in.
Please donate today and join me in putting cancer in its place: behind us.
