Garett Dworman's PledgePage for Team In Training

I am very excited to have recently joined Team In Training to ride a Century (100 miles) this coming autumn with the goal of raising at least $3,000 for Cancer research and patient care. Please help me meet my fundraising goal.

It has been over 2 years since I rode in the Boston => NYC Aids Ride. This was one of the most rewarding activities of my life:

  • It felt good to be a part of the AIDS Ride community.

  • It felt good to be in about the best shape I had even been.

  • It felt good to know that I raised over $4,000 towards helping the AIDS community.

I am proud to have ridden for AIDS. Now, I am ridding for another cause even more dear to my heart. I am raising money for cancer research in memory of a number of people who died of cancer.

  • Last year, my stepsister, Mara Freedman, died of cancer. I am riding for her memory.

  • Mara's mother, Esther Freedman, died of breast cancer. I am riding for her memory.

  • The prior year, my friend, Roddy, lost his father, Bob Devlin, to Lymphoma. I am riding for his memory.

  • My brother’s childhood friend, David Karlin, suffered from cancer as a teen. I am riding for his memory.

  • My friend and flatmate, Phyllis Shapiro, died of Leukemia one year after graduating college. I am riding for her memory.

I am sure you agree with me that cancer research can save millions of lives. Today, in the United States alone, 11,000 people die of cancer every week!

Team in Training guarantees that at least 75% of the money raised will go to research and patient care. They do this by estimating the cost of training a rider and then requiring the rider to raise 4 times that amount. This formula has successfully provided millions of dollars to research. For example, the new chemotherapy drug Glaveek was developed in part with Team in Training donations

Please help me raise $3,000 by filling in and sending me the form on my donations page. Of course, your donation is 100% tax deductible. Also, be sure to see ask your employer to match your donation.

On this pledge page you can learn more about Team In Training and the Tahoe ride, see my training and fundraising progress, sign my virtual guestbook, and download my sponsorship form if you need extra copies to pass on to others who might like to support me.

Thank you for helping me help others.
