Charles Steedman's Ride

Why I Ride ...

I'm a proud supporter of the PMC because I am flat out sick of the impact cancer has had and continues ot have on all of our lives. I lost both of my parents to cancer in 2002 and since then my life has been touched by many who also have suffered, The good  news is, significant progress is being made every day. The bad news is, we're still losing family and friends at an alarming rate.
 
I am especially proud that 100% of all rider-generated contributions to riders go directly to support research and patient care at the Dana Faber Cancer Institute in Boston. The great facility is at the forefront of research and treatment and continue to lead the fight towards prevention and cure.
 
2013 is my 11th consecutive year riding ... last year, I paid tribute to the 512 people in my life who have been affected by this disease by riding 512 miles from Niagara Falls, NY to the start of the PMC in Sturbridge, MA. While I may not be attempting something as significant as that this year, the need for fundraising to support research is no less.
 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.
