I know what it is like to feel like I got my life back. I lost over 150 pounds and went from having a hard time catching my breath, a hard time walking, and even a hard time sleeping, to feeling healthy, active, and alive again! That is why I am spending June 23rd, celebrating life by joining Roswell Park Cancer Institute in their "Ride for Roswell" bike race.
I'll be riding a 33-mile route with thousands of other riders. I won't be coming in first, not even close, but I'll be feeling strong and healthy. Alongside me, will be other riders joining together for a wonderful day. A few of the riders have decided to join my team: "Frank's Ride for Roswell". I invite you to ride with us; it can be as little as 3 miles or as much as 100 miles.
Here is how you join our team - (by joining the team you become a fundraiser yourself with a $150.00 commitment):
www.rideforroswell.org / register to ride / join a team / "frank's ride for Roswell" / sign up
You can also donate to the team. Any amount would be appreciated in support of the cause. Here's how:
www.rideforroswell.org / "Donate" / enter my name and "Give Now"
Whether you are riding beside me or just cheering for the cause, I hope to see you there.
Life is a celebration itself; why not make June 23rd a day to recognize it!
