Just like so many of the other riders, volunteers and donors, I have been personally impacted by cancer. Most notably, my mom who fortunately beat cancer while my grandma, uncle and a very close college friend were not so fortunate. Most recently, I had the opportunity to work with Ray Mikovits in leading our firm's recruiting efforts at Georgetown. Ray lost his battle with cancer around the same time I was made aware of Bellringer. Despite not being much of a bike rider, I jumped at the opportunity to do something special in honor of the aforementioned. Being a husband and father of four precious kids, my hope is that cancer will not be something that they have to deal with directly or indirectly. I've made a commitment to fundraising, and I invite you to join me by donating to my effort and supporting life-saving cancer research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
