I just wanted to say a big "Thank You" to all of my sponsors who donated money on the behalf of my mom for yesterday's ride with George Hincapie. A very special thanks goes out to Mark Sisson, Brad Kearns, Ken Dawson, Paige Dunn and Roger Petty..thanks guys for making my day to honor my mom a special one.
Below is a brief description of the charity and the ride.
The fundraising charity ride benefiting cancer support organizations is for all cyclists, cycling enthusiasts and cancer charity supporters. The Breakaway from Cancer™ charity ride, sponsored by Amgen, will benefit the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, the Patient Advocate Foundation, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer and The Wellness Community.
The 25-mile course started off from Marina Green and went through the Presidio with beautiful views and fun landscape. Then the ride followed the Pacific Coast south around Lake Merced and back up the coast through Golden Gate Park and more of the Presidio before arriving back at Marina Green.
