DCC 2021 Cancer Challenge
This year the DCC is April 10, I will again be on the road with team Polyglass. It’s personal for me, my family has had several bouts with cancer, both my father and my cousin have passed away due to cancer so I am committed to helping find the cure so your family also doesn’t have to lose a loved one to cancer. Whether you ride, run, walk, volunteer, or donate, we are all fighting cancer. I need your support to help me reach my goal and I thank you for supporting me in my fundraising efforts.

The DCC has become one of the nation’s most celebrated experiences inspiring thousands of cyclists, runners, and walkers to come together as one team focused on one unified fight. But we realize now more than ever, it’s time for us to grow our mission beyond just that moment. It’s time for us to evolve into a year-round movement focused on the challenge the cancer community faces every single day. We’re raising the bar, our collective goals, and the impact we will have in pursuit of your cure.
