Giving back - Attention bicyclists - An alternative or addition to Pelotonia

Dear readers from time to time I'll post items that are personally important to my family. We believe strongly in the notion of giving back to the community and do so through various nonprofit organizations like COSI (we're on the advisory board), GroundWork Group, American Cancer Society, TechCorps Ohio, TechColumbus, and the Dublin Entrepreneur center. This is one of those times. We appreciate you taking the time to listen as we help these great organizations.


Pan Ohio 2010

As many of you know my wife Sandy and I support the American Cancer Society. One of the ways we support this great organization is by riding in this year's Pan Ohio Hope Ride and I'd like you to consider riding with me. This will be my third year riding the event and can vouch for the quality of the ride and the experience. Last year we raised over $300k with 250 riders. This year the ride will be capped at 400 riders so early registration is encouraged.

I've already registered and have a team in place.

Just click on the join the team button ;-)

A information session will be held on Feb 11 from 6-8pm at the Premier as Sawmill Athletic Center. See detail below. Hope you can join us.

Peace out,

American Cancer Society Pan Ohio Hope Ride
