    Hello everyone. My name is Chris, and I'm currently a 15 year old sophomore in high school. This summer my friend and I will be touring the Pacific Coast on bicycles. Our mission is to help raise cancer awareness and to raise funds for cancer research.

    Cancer is something that I have personally dealt with and it has greatly impacted me throughout my childhood. My dad was diagnosed with sarcoma cancer when I was five years old. He has been battling cancer for more than a decade now, and it has touched me deeply. Sometimes I just imagine how the world would be if there was no cancer. Well I hope that during my lifetime, this dream will turn into a reality and one day we will be able to find a cure for this disease.

    Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) by the end of our bike tour along the Pacific Coast,. As of now, we have met 15% of our goal. From the bottom of my heart, I hope that you can help join us in the fight against cancer.


    You can visit our homepage at
    Ride Against Cancer - Home

    or our donation page at
    National Foundation for Cancer Research - Ride Against Cancer


    Every donation amount is always welcomed. Even a donation of $1 will help take us all one step closer to the cure. 100% of the funds raised are directed towards the NFCR.

    Thank you for taking your time to read this, and I hope you have a wonderful day.


    Chris Chan
