Friends, So much going on. You’re racing your bike. Your kids are
racing their bikes. You’re shopping at the Expo. You’re eating burgers.
You’re drinking craft beers. You’re soaking up the sunshine
and celebrating the good life. It’s good to get, to receive, to
be showered with gifts and accolades. But it’s even better to give. The
Dana Point Grand Prix Presented by Amgen Breakaway from Cancer is proud to give, but now we’re
asking you, your friends and family to give back. We’re asking you
to support cancer survivors, caregivers, family members and advocates.
How? Simply by walking. Walking and talking, cheering and laughing, reflecting
and reaching out, in solidarity, in downtown Dana Point, on the race course,
at prime time. At 3:35pm, just before the Amgen Pro men’s race,
we are opening the course to everyone and anyone who wishes to lodge their
protest against cancer and support for survivors.
Believe me, it feels good to work with others in a noble fight against
a common enemy. Courtesy of Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer (BfC)
initiative, we will be offering BfC hats and bracelets to the first 150
participants. We will also make available “I ride for ____”
BfC decals which you can fill out and affix to your clothing. We know
it’s not about the trinkets. It’s about showing support, giving
back, making new friends, and serving a higher and bigger cause.
We want to thank Amgen for this noble opportunity. We also wish to thank the
Pacific Meso Center, a non profit medical foundation whose mission is to develop innovative
therapies that will convert deadly mesothelioma into a chronic and treatable
disease. For more information on Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer event
