I guess this must be at least somewhat addictive because here I am again. This time, however, instead of going coast to coast, I plan to ride border to border from Quebec City, Canada to Key West, FL This time, unlike the deserts and high plains that characterized much of the last two rides, I am looking forward to going from lush greens on to beaches and the ocean.
This is addictive because despite all of my grousing during my previous rides, there is something captivating about traversing this country of ours by using my own power. And, I admit, doing it in the face of the toll taken by the inexorable passage of time adds to the satisfaction.
Additional motivation is provided by the fact that as did Laura’s Ride 2016 and Laura’s Ride North, Laura’s Ride Atlantic Coast is devoted to raising funds to help those afflicted with breast cancer and to raise awareness of that horrible disease. Making these efforts worthwhile is the knowledge that because of your generous support, the rides have raised funds that have helped breast cancer victims. As before, 100% of your donations will go to help breast cancer victims through the Lazarex Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose generous founders pay all overhead costs. (Please see a description of the Lazarex Cancer Foundation’s history and good deeds at www.lazarex.org.)
In addition to individual donors, we are seeking Sponsors who contribute a minimum of $500.00 which may be used to help pay some of the fund raising expenses. Sponsors will be featured on this website. Sponsors’ checks should be made to “Perez & Miller, Trustee for Laura’s Ride” to the address below. Following the completion of this ride, Sponsors will be provided a receipt for their tax records from Lazaex Cancer Foundation
showing their entire donation.
Contributions can be made by credit card by clicking on “DONATE NOW” on the top right of this page or you can avoid the charges associated
with that method by sending a check payable to Lazarex Cancer Foundation” to:
Perez & Miller, APC
P.O. Box 1549
Lafayette, CA 94549

Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Rick Perez.
