I am riding in the Leadville 100 MTB race for the fourth consecutive year. Leadville has become a yearly challenge for me both physically as well as financially through First Descents. With the help of my close friends and family, I have been fortunate to raise over $10,000 through-out the past three previous years.

The money has helped 10 young adults impacted by cancer to experience a life-changing outdoor adventure experience, empowering them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis and connect with others doing the same.

During First Descents programs, young adult survivors and fighters are empowered through conquering legitimate outdoor challenges to push their limits and face their fears, and by doing so, they are able to regain the confidence and self-efficacy lost to cancer. 

I accomplished my physical goal of finishing Leadville last year in under 9 hours and recieving the coveted large belt bucket. This year, my goal is to return and race under 9 hours again, but more importantly raise $5,000 through the process.

Thanks for your support (especially those close friends and family that have been so generous to give every year!)
