Cardiac Sarcoidosis is a rare, often chronic inflammatory disorder that causes the formation of granulomas, or clumps of inflammatory cells. Roughly 35,000 Americans have Cardiac Sarcoidosis. There is currently no known cure and treatment options are limited and often ineffective.

My fight against Cardiac Sarcoidosis has been scary, liberating, tiring, motivating, and educational. Through this six year journey, there have been two constants. First, the support I have received from my loving family, steadfast friends and coworkers, and very smart medical team. Second, the therapeutic, calming, and motivating force that comes from cycling.

I am looking to try something new with Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) Team KISS! KISS stands for Kick In to Stop Sarcoidosis, and that’s what you'll be doing by supporting my page. FSR is the leading nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for this disease and improving care and treatment options for sarcoidosis patients.

In the summer 2024, a hard-working group of cyclists will be riding from Syracuse to Albany from May 28-30 on the Empire Trail which follows the old Erie Canal, and then doing it again from Albany to NYC between August 6 and 8. All total, that's almost 340 miles of kicking Sarc into submission.

Please consider sponsoring our ride with a donation. You can either buy miles or sponsor a rider.
$5 - $1 for every 36
$10 - $1 for every 18 miles
$25 - $1 for every 6 miles
$25 - Be a virtual rider anywhere on Earth
$50 - $1 for every 3.5 miles
$75 - $1 for every 2.5 miles
$180 - $1 for every mile
$200 to sponsor a rider (see list below)

The funds all go directly to FSR and their programs for improving patient education, supporting patients and their caretakers, and of course, funding research to find better treatment options and one day, a cure.

Please consider helping me reach my goal. Together, we can Stop Sarcoidosis!

Embrace the grind!
