Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am participating in The Ride for the first time in support of mine and Craig's friend, Paul who we both respect and love dearly. Please read Paul's story because my efforts are all for him: https://www.givesignup.org/Race/28060/Donate/f8w3kkbuqvxY7Zet
In my 10 years of friendship with Paul, he hasn't asked me for a thing; but he is asking now. It's Paul's hope, and mine too, that people will donate to support cancer research and treatment through The Ride and the UW Carbone Cancer Center while he powers through his own treatment plan.
Unfortunately, we've all been impacted by cancer in one way or another; perhaps even multiple times over. I ask you to please join me and my incredible friends in rallying behind Paul this year - you can donate, participate in The Ride by running/walking/biking, or volunteering for the event. I'll be donating and biking the 50K on Sunday 9/26. No act of generosity is too small and I greatly appreciate your support. We're all stronger together. Love and strength to all of you my friends. <3
I’m proudly helping accelerate cancer research and patient treatment initiatives forward at the University of Wisconsin through my involvement in The Ride, an annual wellness event which powers the brightest cancer minds, ideas and technologies at UW. We all have been affected by cancer in some way and more needs to be done to combat this terrible disease.
The Ride's mission is to give 100% of all participant-raised dollars (yes, every penny!) to the most promising UW cancer initiatives both in the laboratory and clinic setting. Since 2016, The Ride has raised over $1.2 million and what’s best of all is our ability to see where the money goes as the Ride presents their Ride Scholars each year!
The Ride takes place in September and 100% of all dollars-raised are presented to the newly announced Ride Scholar Class by January of the next year. This is done quickly so the funds can make an impact in the labs and hospital helping patients and families immediately.
Help me support The Ride and its UW cancer mission. All contributions are appreciated - whether it is $5 or $500, every dollar counts and you can be assured that every dollar you give goes back to the cause and helping those affected by cancer.
If you are unable to make a monetary donation at this point, please help me reach my goal by sharing this page with others on social media! Even better, send an email to friends you think might be interested in contributing or joining The Ride and include a link to my page.

Thank you so much for your generosity and Ride On!
