Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide, but it no longer has to be a death sentence. Thanks to the tremendous work of researchers and organizations fighting to find a cure, there are millions of cancer survivors.
One of those survivors is Kevin Mulshine, who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2008. In addition to his chemotherapy and radiation treatment, Kevin endured 12 surgeries in an 18-month period.
In September 2009, Kevin celebrated his recovery with a tough 34-mile ride with Dr. Roger Nichols – one of the doctors who helped save Kevin’s life.
I’m happy to say that Kevin and I will be standing together this weekend to celebrate all cancer survivors during the B Strong Ride at Celestial Seasonings headquarters in Boulder. In its first two years, B Strong Ride has raised $625,000 to benefit Boulder Community Hospital Center for Integrative Care and the George Karl Foundation.
We’re expecting another great turnout this year. It’s not too late to join us for the 69-mile mountain loop, the 24-mile countryside loop or the 1-mile Mini B for kids 10 and under. I tackled the Mini B with my daughter Kaci last year and had a blast!
Registration is $95 for individual riders. You can pay only $80 if you get a team of at least four people together. Click here for all the information.
After the ride, we’re going to have a great time sharing stories and celebrating life, so join us for food, music and more this Saturday.
Hope to see you there.
