#GivingTuesday was started as the charitable counterpart to #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, but it’s become so much more! In the spirit of this day, I’m asking for your help in reaching my #PadresPedal fundraising goal. This year I rode [-insert your total miles here-] to raise money for lifesaving cancer research. 100% of the money raised stays in San Diego and funds collaborative research at world-class institutions. Please consider giving–every donation helps me reach my goal of raising $[-insert fundraising goal-]. Learn more about my Padres Pedal participation and donate at [-Insert link to Rider Profile-].
