This year marks my 4th year of participation and I am incredibly thankful for the tremendous support I received from many of you last year. As I have previously shared, my life has been forever changed as a result of this terrible disease. At the young age of 23, my brother Ricardo "Ricky" Gonzalez, lost his multi-year battle with testicular cancer. In 2007 my mother, Silvia Gonzalez also lost her multi-year battle with cancer. Prior to these experiences and after, many other friends, colleagues and loved ones have also lost their fight but some have BEAT IT!! There have been huge advancements in Cancer treatments and I am certain that our fundraising efforts from previous years have already helped to save someones life, extend their lives and or improve their quality of life. I urge you to each once again join me in the crusade and lets always remember how fortunate we are to be able to assist in this great cause. Last year, my efforts helped raise over $120,000 and its because of the generous support many of you gave me. If you can find it in your hearts again to donate the same or greater to my ride and this great cause, it would be incredibly meaningful to me!
Thank you all!
