We are very pleased and proud to introduce Mike Mulhern and his ride across America to raise money for breast cancer research. Needless to say, we think long rides are a great way to support a cause and we could not be happier to do our part to spread the word.
I think Mike's son said it best in a recent email to all of his friends, "I am sure that you know someone that has been affected by this disease as it is a very real danger that faces women these days. And if at 57 years old Mike can take 6 weeks off to ride across the country for this cause I am sure that you can spare as little as $1."
A very good friend and supporter of ours is currently battling the disease and her courage and unfaltering positive attitude is a constant inspiration to us both. We will be donating in her honor to Mike's ride and hope that you will too.
Below is an excerpt from Mike's website that we hope everyone will visit and make a donation... Even if it is $1. http://www.coast2coast4acure.com/
"My name is Mike Mulhern and on May 17, 2010 I am embarking on a 3,750 mile cycling journey across the United States and I’m asking you to join me. The purpose of this ride is to raise a substantial amount of money for breast cancer research and awareness through the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Foundation. I will be traveling through 13 States beginning in Boston MA and ending in San Francisco CA. I was inspired by the amazing effort, dedication, and determination of my wife Cyndy, and her team “Twin Pinks” who walked the 39 mile Avon Breast Cancer Walk in San Francisco in July 2009 raising $25,000. I accompanied them to offer support and assistance if needed, and was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the event. I had to do something to contribute to the cause. Since walking is not something I enjoy, I do enjoy riding my bicycle -but 3,750 miles-why not?! To donate and read more about why I ride visit my site at http://www.coast2coast4acure.com/"
