Ride for the Cure

My mother has had breast cancer. Twice. This has affected her, me and our family so deeply that when I found out my good friend, Audrey, was doing the 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk, I wanted to help. Her sister is also a breast cancer survivor. Audrey and her sisters will walk 60 miles in 3 days (no small feat) for the 2nd year in a row. Along the way, she raises money to donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, whose sole purpose is to help fight breast cancer.

This year, I am helping Audrey by organizing a ride to help raise money for her walk. If anyone in the area would like to participate, I hope you will join us! It's a fully supported ride, offering 20, 40, and 60 mile distances of increasing difficulty. The route offers spectacular views of the Cabrillo National Monument, Sunset Cliffs, Mt. Soledad, La Jolla Shores, and Torrey Pines (bring your camera!). Come out, ride, have a good time and donate as much or as little as you want. More information about the ride can be found here:
Here is the link for the map:

Also, if you prefer to donate directly to Audrey's website, here is the link:

Ride for the Cure Success!!!

Thanks so much to all the riders that came out and also to the wonderful volunteers who made the ride possible. Audrey has met her goal for the 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk! You guys are the best!

I run the Susan G. Komen run every year. Well, this is my second since I just started this healthy running stuff, but plan to make it an annual event!
Cancer sucks no matter where it calls home in the body-any chance I can to do something for a cure makes my life that much better.
Good luck with the ride, sounds like fun.
