More About Cycle of Lives
The Cycle of Lives was formed as the result of David Richman’s many years of dedication to raising awareness and funds for cancer research and care. He first started to form the idea in 2007, when his sister was in the last few weeks of her battle with cancer. His sister, June was like many people we all know: loving, caring, building a family, enjoying a career, and living her days both smiling at the past, and dreaming of the future. When things became difficult, she found ways to continually fight through and overcome adversity. She was successful at those things, but at the end, June was up against too tough an opponent. After battling for several years, she was unable to overcome brain cancer.
Back then, David Richman made a commitment to his sister: he would run 24 hours and raise money to support her fight. In the many years since, June continues to inspire him to accomplish endurance challenges and raise money for the care, research and support of those affected by cancer, and their friends and families.
In the subsequent years, he has completed several more events: 24-hour runs, an 87-mile run from Cancun to Tulum in the heat of a Mexican summer, a 104-mile run along Pacific Coast Highway, long bike rides, and various other endurance events. Hundreds of people have supported and joined in the various events, and together, they have raised tens of thousands of dollars along the way for exceptional organizations.
With Cycle of Lives, David has raised the stakes, and is taking on a much more challenging event, coupled with writing a book on cancer. The 6-week ride will begin on September 2nd, 2016, in Los Angeles. David will make my way across and up the United States, covering 5,000 miles and visiting the people who will be the subjects of his book, which will chronicle the lives of 15-20 people who are affected by cancer, either as patients, doctors, researchers, caregivers, or otherwise. These poignant, significant, meaningful, helpful stories will cover many aspects of cancer: caregiving and research, emotional and intellectual journeys, various stages of life, and more, so that combined, these memoirs will give us a complete view of the human experience as it relates to cancer.
