I know you receive many requests from friends and acquaintances soliciting contributions to a great many different worthy charities. Hospice of Cape Cod is one of them. Hospice has touched my life in a profound way and helped me to become a stronger person. One day, when I am strong enough, I expect to work directly with a hospice organization wherever I may live. For now, I view this annual cycling event as a testament of my will to become that stronger person.
Perhaps all fundraising events are so, but The Last Gasp seems special to me in its approach. You should know that 100% of all funds donated go directly to Cape Cod charities. Of course, you do not have to be a Cape Cod resident to support my ride for Hospice. Hospice is everywhere. What I find truly fun about the Last Gasp, though, is that the drive of the top riders is to raise money, not to win the race. I have ridden in 2009 and 2010, skipping 2011 for grad school at Antioch University, and I have been a Big Wheel each year. A Big Wheel is one of the top fundraisers, and I hope you will help me reach that goal once again.
If you prefer to send a donation via check, please make it payable to ‘The Last Gasp’, and mail it to: Christopher Green, 19 Whidah Way, Centerville MA 02632.
Donate $500 and receive a signed fine art giclee print of a photograph I made on Great Island years ago. These museum quality prints are made by Bob Korn.
Yours, Very very respectfully,
