Gary Schotanus

I am excited to participate in the ride with a mission to help families that are encountering a major life challenge facing cancer. I am riding in memory of my dad who we lost to cancer in 2004 and I’m also riding to celebrate my recoveries from kidney cancer in 2012 and prostate cancer in 2018. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in the ride and be a part of the team. Thank you donors for your support.
As a part of the Snowball Cancer Challenge 2022, Nick and a group of riders on Feb 10, 2022 and Feb 17, 2022 will attempt to ride 500+ miles in ONE DAY – The Valentine 500. These riders will obtain pledges and donations to keep them motivated on their long ride(s). The money raised will go to the Keller Family Community Foundation to support their mission. All donations will be tax deductible.

Bryan thanks for your support . Hope you are doing well. If you’re still riding we’ll have to ride together again sometime.
