Since I was a boy, cycling has been a big part of my life. I think of bicycles as a force for good ... a timeless means of transportation, making new friends, discovering new places and practicing a healthier lifestyle. Paceline is, by its very nature, encouraging people from all parts of the community to do something meaningful through riding a bike. Together we can cure cancer faster.
My father-in-law and grandfather both passed from cancer and my wife and I have lost friends and know many others who continue to fight. Just here in Georgia, nearly 140 people are diagnosed and 50 people pass each day due to this indiscriminate disease. Paceline Ride funds the critical research being done at the Georgia Cancer Center and together, we'll cure cancer faster.
I have watched many friends and family members face their own journey with cancer. It is never easy, but having a support system can make all the difference. Paceline mimics this as we are all coming together to support the Georgia Cancer Center. Fundraising and awareness for cancer research have been a large part of my life since I was young. Through Paceline, I know that each day I am working to make a difference for the researchers, doctors, and cancer patients.
Chairman and Founder
I ride to serve others. To be a part of something bigger than myself. To raise funds for researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center to advance a cure. My hope is that my ride will encourage others to ride/volunteer because together, we can cure cancer faster!
