I helped to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Jen's Ducks

This is my 16th year with St Baldricks as an annual shavee, volunteer, and committee member. 2018 brought something new to the St Baldrick's event calendar; I was privileged to help put together the first ever St Baldrick's team to participate in Bike NY's "5 Boro Bike Tour" or as I referred to it; the "1 in 5 Boro Bike Tour" The tour is a 40-mile bike ride through all 5 Boros of NYC including a trip on the Staten Island Ferry, central park, and 5 Bridges culminating in the finale spanning the Verrazano. Its a spectacular world-class event and representative of the difficult road faced by children fighting cancer. We did it again in 2019 raising over $35,000 the past 2 years combined!

Now we're focused on 2020, WE'RE DOING IT AGAIN! Five Boro 3.0!!

As in previous years I'll also be shaving my head to help raise money for childhood cancer research and in honor of my daughter Jennifer. Jen was not only a cancer patient, she was a committee member for St Baldricks, a driven fundraiser and an inspiration to all who met her. Her spirit, determination, and zest for life help drive our Jen's Ducks team.

Childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. It is my mission to do something about it by raising money for cures; I now have 2 ways to do it.

But I can't reach my goals without your help! Will you please make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers. Just click the "Donate" button to help sponsor me, its quick and easy and you'll feel good about it too!

Thank You!
