Help Kim raise money

For participating in MSU Gran Fondo

Fighting Skin Cancer on Two Wheels

After last years cancellation IT'S BACK!

It's that time again. My 8th Grand Fondo ride to support MSU College of Human Medicine Skin Cancer Research. Your donation to my ride goes directly to research, local in Michigan. None of it goes to administrative activities. The ride is September 18th. I ask that if you desire to contribute, do what you can. I appreciate you! I ride for friends and family that have or had cancer, of any type. Follow this link: Select Donate to Participant; enter my name and follow the instructions. My goal is $1250. Karen and I will be contributing $650. Thank You I appreciate your support


Most of us have known people who have personally fought the battle against cancer. Through modern treatments and much grace, some have survived. Others have not. The MSU Gran Fondo is my opportunity to get some skin in the game and provide hope for nearly 70,000 people in the U.S. expected to be diagnosed with melanomas of the skin this year.

Funds raised from the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Gran Fondo support skin cancer awareness, prevention and research at MSU. These dollars are funding pilot studies – investigative, next-step research that tests findings and enables a scientific study to continue.

The MSU Gran Fondo has raised over $1 Million and funded studies leading to some exciting breakthroughs in the fight against skin cancer. Click through the articles below to learn more.

This September, the streets of West Michigan will be paved with good intentions. And here’s where I need your help. I’ve made a commitment to make the MSU Gran Fondo much more than a ride. My hope is that you will join me in supporting a mission that is more than skin deep. 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to support skin cancer awareness, prevention and research at MSU. Together we can make a difference. Thank you!
