It is here- the weekend soooo many great people have prepared for - the ride to end cancer! You can't but marvel at this impressive, incredible effort. Those that don't know about it- read, google, check it out. One goal- end cancer- raise funds for research. And it is working! We know people first hand that have had terrible diagnosis and treatments are evolving- research is working. We're grateful. We all have our stories- if you read far back in my blog you know ours- although I probably need to share more about the connection of my Dad's blood disorder to cancer, and his mother's young death- 35 from leukemia. Life on Newark-Granville Road sees too much cancer so I value and appreciate each rider, volunteer, fundraiser, awareness builder! THANK YOU!
I do not ride- this isn't my thing- but I support and cheer. I'm wearing green today. I love that Denison's Swasey Chapel is lit at night in green and the signs are all over Granville. Tomorrow we'll go (please join- show up-the Richards family host a great breakfast and collects funds and gives us a fabulous place to cheer the riders as they enter Granville- west side of Broadway, past Wildwood park- you are invited!!) Duty calls and I won't be there as long as I like but I'm with you all and grateful to all that go out and cheer the streets of Granville- downtown is fun too!
At the base of all of this is education- those researchers are educated,
they are persistent scientists! I love that Pelotonia provides funding
for those smart, focused, risk taking, hardworking people with a dream-
end cancer! Life on Newark-Granville road is figure eights, integrated and about relationships- that is why Denison, The Works, the Granville Community, Licking County, Central Ohio, family all matter and apply to this effort and why I hope you'll join us in supporting Pelotonia. http://pelotonia.org/about/history/
