I am bicycling 4000 miles from Baltimore to San Francisco this summer to raise funds, awareness, and hope in the fight against cancer. I will be joined by 26 other rides as a part of this year's 4k for Cancer.
Each rider is responsible for raising $4000 - that's $1 for every mile we ride. The funds go to the American Cancer Society's Baltimore Hope Lodge, a free residence for patients receiving cancer treatment in the Baltimore area. We also donate funds to the research and outreach programs at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital.
Please support my trip and the 4k for Cancer's objectives by making a donation - EVERY PENNY COUNTS! Seriously, whatever you can give is TREMENDOUSLY appreciated, and all of it is tax-deductible - just ask me for the form. You can donate online using your credit/debit card by visit my fundraising page and clicking on the "Donate Here" link. You can copy-paste the URL into your browser to access my fundraising page.

I did this ride in 2006 and made a small slide show of images from the Rocky Mountains set to John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High".
