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.
Director of Engagement
Cancer has impacted my family in a very deep way. Two months after I got married, we lost my husband’s best friend to cancer. Since then, we’ve lost numerous friends and relatives to this horrible disease. In addition, my father and mother are both cancer survivors. I immediately knew I wanted to be part of Paceline to raise awareness, fund research and improve patient care. I can’t think of a better way to honor and celebrate our friend’s legacy.

Every day, there is a growing list of reasons as to why I decided to join the Paceline that can be summarized simply: cure cancer faster. I believe in the researchers and doctors at the GCC. I am not a rider, but I am trying to become one. As I think about the doctors, researchers, patients, and survivors I have met, my family and friends who have also been touched by cancer, it all becomes crystal clear. I am riding 100 miles for them.
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!
