A Life's Cycle

A Life's Cycle

Dear Followers,

Our names are Ajelet Mor and Christina Pauley and we will be biking across the USA this coming June to raise money for Discovery to Cure, an organization at Yale University for gynecologic cancer research. Discovery to Cure aims towards advancing the prevention, finding early detection and treatment of women’s reproductive cancers.

We are two, soon-to-be graduate students from the University of Denver in Colorado and are looking for your help! Our plan is to start in Tillamook, Oregon and bike our way over to Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, where Discovery to Cure is located. As we journey across the country, we are asking you to help sponsor our journey and help us raise money to give to Discovery to Cure.

You can read more about our trip at https://alifescycle2017.wixsite.com/alifescycle .  But here's what we plan to take with us as well as our estimations for what this trip will cost us. 40% of your contribution will contribute to helping us purchase some of the equipment that will make this trip possible.
