On October 7- 9, I will be joining more than 100 fellow riders from across North America as we gather in Sarasota, Florida for one of the most important fundraising and physical challenges of my life. As some of you know, I took on this challenge last year as well. The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness and support The Team Tony Foundation's Cycle of Life. It is so impressive to see a large group of cyclist, in our bright jerseys riding in formation through various small towns and cities across the state. Our ride will start in Daytona Beach and will end on Main Street in Lakewood Ranch.
The Team Tony Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing 1-on-1 support and resources to those diagnosed with cancer. The Cycle of Life is their biggest fundraiser and provides the organization with the resources they need to provide assistance to those touched by cancer. I'm participating in the two day, 200 mile ride to raise awareness and money for Team Tony. I accepted the challenge to ride because I believe in their important mission and as most of you know I am very passionate about cycling and physical fitness in general. Companionship and introducing cancer patient to various sports, like cycling is one of the ways these cancer patients are assisted. It has been proven that the cancer patients benefit hugely when put on a fitness program. I need your help. By making a donation on my behalf, you're helping Team Tony provide the 1-on-1 support to those fighting the cancer battle.
My goal is to exceed the requested fundraising pledge of $500. Please help me reach my goal by supporting me in this year's Cycle of Life. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible. I encourage you to learn more about a local guy named Tony who while out for a bike ride, became unconscious as a result of a brain tumor that he was unaware that he had, and The Team Tony Foundation by going to www.teamtony.org. If you would like to donate, please make the check payable to Team Tony Foundation and mail your contribution to me at New Image Dentistry.
I know that my participation in this year's Cycle of Life will make a difference. With the support of people like you, The Team Tony Foundation can meet their goal to raise 1 million dollars over the next 4 years and help those who have been affected with this disease.
Together, we can make a difference. Thank you for your support!
