Support the fight against cancer

Submitted by Jeanne Osborne, osborne.2@osu.edu

You've seen the message from Dean Kress about Pelotonia - the bike ride to raise money to fight cancer - and Team Buckeye - CFAES Sustains Life; and maybe you have wondered, 'how can I get involved?' There are many opportunities to join this event and fight cancer. 
    
You may want to be a virtual rider (join the Dean, Kris and Jeanne as we 'ride' along virtually with the more than 5,000 people who will be riding up to 180 miles on Aug. 4 & 5). You can volunteer the days of the race ( there are many opportunities at Kenyon College on Aug. 4 for example). You can donate directly online or you can buy raffle tickets for prizes like two OSU Football Season Tickets, a cabin for two on the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer, or a day with TBDBITL (tickets are 1 for $15 or 3 for $30 - see Kris or Jeanne if you would like to purchase!). The possibilities are many, and the need is great! 
    
We all have been touched by the 'Big C' in one way or another, and there has been so much progress in the fight. My hope is that our children's children will see a world where cancer is just another type of sick and that 'cure' is the norm.
