Pan-Mass Challenge

The cure for cancer is achievable. We’re “getting closer by the mile.”

Together, we can help patients and their families overcome the challenges of cancer. Together, we can help eliminate the uncertainty and fear that comes with a cancer diagnosis. Together, we can support the research that will one day make the treatment of cancer routine, safe, and sure to cure.

With your help, with your encouragement, with your donation and with your love, we’re getting closer.

In the beginning of August, I will be on the road to Provincetown with Team Kinetic Karma, getting closer by the mile. I could use your help, encouragement, donation and love.

I ride in the Pan Mass Challenge because of Jeff, Dave, my dad, uncle, aunt and Nana. I ride to help save the next person diagnosed with cancer.

Jeff was diagnosed with cancer just before Thanksgiving in 2015 and this terrible disease killed him two months later. He was a big, strong, brash guy. We grew up together, went to high school together, went to college together, snowboarded together and climbed mountains together.

Cancer took him.

I can’t think of a better way to remember him than to continue to ride in his memory and raise money to fight the disease that killed him.

Jeff and I grew up with Dave. After Dave’s mom died of cancer, Dave formed Team Kinetic Karma and I first rode my first Pan-Mass Challenge.

I came back to ride again when Dave was diagnosed with cancer. He fought back and won. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute helped him beat back the disease.

Then my dad was diagnosed with cancer. He fought back and won. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute helped him beat back the disease. But his sister, brother, and mother (my aunt, uncle and Nana) did not win, and lost their battles with cancer.

100% of your donations go to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. You can make a donation by CLICKING HERE, or sending a check to my mailing address:
