Welcome to my 3-2-1 Ride Page

For the 2nd year in a row, I’ve made a very special commitment. This commitment will be meaningful for so many people beyond myself.

I will be participating in The Woiner Foundation's 3-2-1 Ride to increase awareness and support research for melanoma and pancreatic cancer. 100% of every rider-raised dollar goes directly to support cancer research and patient care at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center's Melanoma Program and the Alliance of Families Fighting Pancreatic Cancer!

I am riding in honor of my great aunt Pauline and my Toastmasters friend, Francine, who both lost their battle with pancreatic cancer. I am also riding in honor of my friend Debbie's husband, Rob, who is currently battling pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the US, surpassing breast cancer. It is expected to become the 2nd by next year. Only 9% of those diagnosed will survive more than 5 years.

Approximately 1 person dies of melanoma every hour. More people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than all the other cancers combined.

My personal challenge begins now. I’m asking for your help! I’ll do all the riding... all you need to do is make a fully tax-deductible donation to help me achieve my goal.

Please consider foregoing one evening out and spending the money on a cause that will affect someone you love or know in your lifetime. You know the amount that is right for you. Every dollar counts, big or small!

Last year I started with a goal of $500 and I ended up raising over $1,000 in less than a month all because of you!!

I’m taking on this challenge to do something big that will raise awareness and make a difference. I hope that you’ll support me in my efforts!

Thank you!
Lauren Richards
