What is your connection with the cancer community?:

Why are you riding the 4K for Cancer?:
I want to be a part of helping raise awareness for cancer. I want to help people and i believe this experience is a great way to do so. Cancer affects everyone is some way. This trip is one that i will be putting my whole body, mind and soul into and it will not be easy, but neither is fighting cancer. I will keep this in mind and use it as my motivation to keep moving
forward in the journey!
