Since I was a boy, cycling has been a big part of my life. I think of bicycles as a force for good... a timeless means of transportation, making new friends, discovering new places, and practicing a healthier lifestyle. By its very nature, Paceline is encouraging people from all parts of the community to do something meaningful by riding a bike. Together we can cure cancer faster.
My father-in-law and grandfather both passed from cancer, and my wife and I have lost friends and know many others who continue to fight. Just here in Georgia, nearly 140 people are diagnosed, and 50 people pass each day due to this indiscriminate disease. Paceline Ride funds the critical research being done at the Georgia Cancer Center, and together, we'll cure cancer faster.
I have watched many friends and family members face their own journey with cancer. It is never easy, but having a support system can make all the difference. Paceline mimics this as we are all coming together to support the Georgia Cancer Center. Through Paceline, I know that each day I am working to make a difference for the researchers, doctors, and cancer patients.
Cancer has touched the lives of everyone in our community. Friends, family, neighbors; we all have a story. I knew I wanted to become a part of Paceline as I watched the fulfillment of their mission change lives. Paceline seeks to equalize access to healthy movement and uplift the voices of our communities. Being a part of Paceline, I have witnessed firsthand the power of people from all walks of life coming together under one mission; to cure cancer faster.
Chairman and Founder
I ride to service others. To be a part of something bigger than myself. To raise funds for researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center to advance a cure. My hope is that my ride will encourage others to ride/volunteer because together, we can cure cancer faster!
