2019 will mark my 4th year participating in the Obliteride.  This is the only biking event I do each year.  That tells you how valuable I think this cause is.

Everyone, EVERYONE, has family, friends, acquaintances who have been impacted by cancer. I've personally seen some of the best people I've known taken down by it. Aunt Judy, one of the most caring people I've ever known. Margaret Nervegna, a sweet and intelligent person with as much strength and determination as anyone could have. And I am thankful to know some people who have beaten cancer, too. Including one very dear friend who went through her fight a year ago without telling any of us about it until she was through the worst of it.

Sadly, half of all men and one third of all women in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime. We all pretty much have to assume it's going to hit us sooner or later. Cancer is one of the greatest threats and challenges of our age. It's not going to be eliminated by just one person -- rather by a cooperation of millions of people contributing what we can. Please consider doing what YOU can to help fight cancer! What a difference we can make together!

I'm offering to multiply your donation -- Anything you donate, I'll match dollar-for-dollar.  And Microsoft will match me dollar-for-dollar -- so anything you donate to my page gets tripled!  (And if YOUR employer matches, quadrupled!)  Talk about funding power!

Fred Hutch is a state-of-the art research center here in Seattle.  More than 300 labs and projects are working hard to save the lives of people all over the world by conducting innovative, high-impact cancer research. I’m committed to supporting these labs so they can continue saving lives and can do so faster. Please join me in this fight.

It’s time for us to put cancer in its place. Behind us.

Ride with me, donate to my ride, and tell others about Obliteride.
