Thankful to Support Pelotonia
by Alain Kabbara, PE
I’m writing to you today to ask for your help. On August 5th 2016 I have committed to ride 50 miles in Pelotonia 2016 to raise money for cancer research. This will be my first Pelotonia ride and am extremely excited. I’ve lived in Columbus for nearly 10 years and have great love for this city and pride in its work towards the great goal of curing can cancer.
In 2012, my brother-in-law was diagnosed with Leukemia, both chronic and acute. He, my sister, and their two sons live here in Columbus and I am very close to them so I was shocked and saddened to hear the news as he had never shown any symptoms. Thankfully, the men and women at the James gave him the best treatment and he has been in remission since, and life is back to normal for us.
He has ridden the past two years and I can’t wait to be out there on the road with him! If you’d like to make a difference in the fight against cancer, please make a tax deductible donation to my Pelotonia ride: www.pelotonia.org/akabbara. Thank you!
