Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer and that’s why I think it’s so important for as many people as possible to get involved in the Dolphin Cycling Challenge
Lake Worth, Florida (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
On Saturday November 3rd, South Floridians whose lives have in some way been affected by cancer and those who just want to support an amazing cause will ride in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge to benefit cancer research.
Paul Castronovo of Big 105.9’s Paul & Young Ron show started riding in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge two years ago because his wife Gina is a breast cancer survivor. He captains Team Gina and this year has set a goal of raising $13,875 for cancer research. Since this father of two started training, he has lost more than 90 pounds and rides three to five times a week.
This year, Team Gina has been sponsored by the biggest seller of used cars in Florida, Off Lease Only. Off Lease Only made a generous donation of $5000 to the Challenge, but that’s not the only way this used car dealership is getting involved. This year, John Giasullo, General Manager of Off Lease Only, is participating in the ride for the second time.
Last year, Giasullo trained for four weeks before the challenge so that he could complete the 70 mile loop. He says that before this event he wasn’t an avid cyclist and wouldn’t even consider himself a fit person, but that his motivation for taking on such a big challenge was all of the people he knows and has known who have suffered from cancer. This year, he plans to ride the 70 mile loop again.
“Cancer has affected my family too,” Giasullo said. “One year before I rode the first time my sister-in-law passed away because of cancer. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by this disease and that’s why I think it’s so important for as many people as possible to get involved.”
Giasullo says he challenges other businesses and individuals to get involved in this important event in whatever capacity they can, be it making a donation or riding.
The ride starts at 6:45 from City Place in West Palm Beach and continues to the Sun Life Stadium. Come out and support those riding to make a difference in the lives of cancer sufferers.
