I want to let you know that this will be a very special event for me. I am sure some of you know that my son, Heath, just defeated cancer, and my wife, Valli, defeated it three years ago.
With all that going on the last few years, I felt this would be the year we raise money for the American Cancer Society so that others can find their cure.
With all we have learned about this horrible disease, we felt it was time to help them with the research they are doing that looks so promising for many types of cancer. They have made tremendous strides in curing cancer and seem to be very close to moving it to the next level. Last year’s sponsors contributed to 100,000 meals packed for kids in central Florida and to $52,000 raised for Feeding Children Everywhere and Give Kids the World Village. Please help my family and I this year by sponsoring this great event. It would mean a lot to the Ritenour family.
