Cancer touches us ALL. Whether it’s coming right at us or lurking in the shadows, no one escapes its reach. Every year the list grows: family, friends, business colleagues, neighbors, community leaders, and children -- lung, prostate, colon, cervical, ovarian, bone, breast, brain, thyroid, blood and more. Cancer knows no geographic bounds, striking loved ones wherever they live worldwide. And it can strike more than once.
But it’s not hopeless. It IS something we all can each do something about. Every year there are more stories of winning than losing, and fighting makes a difference to us all. Think of all the cancer survivors you know, and how much they mean to you and those around them. Every day is worth fighting for.
At a time when so much can seem hopeless, this is our way not to be helpless. Please join us in making a difference again this year. As a team we've raised nearly $300,000 over 5 years. Team THANKS is a small group of riders committed to making a big difference in the battle to defeat cancer.You can read more about why each of us rides by visiting our individual rider pages. See Jonathan Lilienfeld, Steven Branson, and Nancy Serpa. Our team leader Mark Deck is taking the year off. It's a good thing because he suffered a riding accident that has him disabled for the ride.
