Why Ride?

Our mission is to “End the stigma and suffering for lung cancer patients and caregivers, in memory of Kathleen Matthews“.

Last year, I rode my bike from SAP in Newtown Square to The Golden Gate Bridge.  It was a 52-day journey and I had support each and every day.  We raised over $93,000, made lots of friends and will do another ride this year.  Check out the video below on what we are doing and how you can help!

Go to our donation site to learn more, especially about how we honor people impacted by lung cancer each day on our ride.

And you can follow us on Twitter @Ride4Lungs, through this blog and on our Facebook Page.

In addition, we will have a tribute every day in November (Lung Cancer Awareness Month) when we will have the Ride Hard Breathe Easy Challenge.
