Local Resident trains in Memory of Retired Fairfax County Fire & Rescue

LOCAL RESIDENT IS GEARING UP TO CYCLE 150 MILES, AND IS INVITING OTHERS TO GET INVOLVED!

 

DC’s first annual Ride to Conquer Cancer is funding vital funds for Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals

 

ANNANDALE ; APRIL 27, 2014;  Jason Smith of Annandale is gearing up for the 2014 Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. He will be joined by thousands of men and women who share a common vision: to conquer cancer. Riders will travel over 150 miles through the capitol’s region picturesque countryside on September 13th and 14th, 2014. Funds raised from this epic event will support scientific discoveries that determine which cancer treatments and screening interventions will work best for individuals and cancer patients.

 

With one in four deaths in the United States will be caused by cancer, Jason rightly viewed the Ride to Conquer Cancer as a call to action. He is rallying for the cause in memory of his father in law; Ret. Fairfax County Firefighter James M. Breslin, Jr. Jim fought esophageal cancer for 16 months until March 27th when cancer won; Jim was only 55 years old.  Jim dedicated his life to helping others, leading a healthy lifestyle and sharing his free time with his wife, 3 kids and 3 grandbabies. He was a true family man.

 

Jason needs your help! He is committed to raise $2,500 but of course would love to raise much more! Please visit his personal webpage at http://dc14.ridetovictory.org/goto/jason4jim
