I did it again

I must be getting older – I am already making plans for next June.
In this case it is for a good reason, cancer.

You may recall last July 2nd a friend of mine passed away from cancer. Just the month before he passed away I rode in the 2009 Livestrong challenge and it was a really powerful experience for a lot of reasons.

Along the way I found out that a lot of people I know have cancer, have had cancer, or died from cancer but before Johnny Carbaugh became ill I had either not known about it or not paid close enough attention to it all.
I should have, and I know about it now by gum.
I aim to keep doing something about it.

Next June 20th, 2010 I will ride 100 miles in honor of the following people in the Seattle Livestrong Challenge (note: this post may be updated to add more people to this list* because it would be foolish of me to think that I got everyone.)

These are my family and friends, both survivors and departed, afflicted with a pretty wicked disease.

Holy cow! I didn’t even know I knew that many people!

I can’t think of a better reason to join in the fight against cancer than this. If you would like to contribute to The LiveStrong Foundation, Team Fatty, or just me, Lief Zimmerman you can do that here.
