Two and a half years ago, my mom passed away due to cancer. We don't know what caused the cancer, but I do know she did not have the most healthy life style. I've been wanting to do something in remembrance of my mother, but was not sure what.
That changed yesterday when a friend told me about a 65 mile bike ride for Lance Armstrong's LiveStrong Foundation. This is a foundation I completely support, and I jumped on board (literally!) the idea of this ride in order to honor my mom. Thanks to Sparkpeople and the fitness and health belonging to these forums has given me, I can do this ride, and I am very excited!!
If you would like to help me meet my donation goals, please use this link: sanjose08.livestrong.org
Every little bit helps! If you're in San Jose on July 13th, come on by and cheer us on!! Or better yet, ride with us!
