Help for the Rutman Family

On February 18th, my girlfriend Liza lost her beautiful mother Anna after a long battle with cancer. What will soon follow is a long road of financal hardships. Liza is now the primary caretaker for her younger sister Katarina, her nephew Arseniy, and her father Gene, who has medical complications of his own. Although she is the strongest woman that I know, she simply cannot do all of this on her own. 
This May, I will be doing a 200 mile bicycle ride along the  Erie Canal from Rochester to Syracuse and back with two of my friends. What was originally designed to be a fun weekend adventure and test of physical endurance I would now like to turn into a charitable cause. For the duration of the ride, I will post fun pictures and updates along the way on my social media accounts to keep everyone engaged and updated on the progress (Hopefully no pictures or videos of me changing flat tires....). 
Many loved ones of mine are wondering how they can help, and this is the absolute best way possible. Medical bills, funeral expenses, grocery bills, etc are just examples of the financial hardships that this beautiful family will have to endure for the forseeable future. 100% of all the money raised will go directly to the Rutman family, and I know they would really appreciate the help. Every little bit helps! I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this, and I will post more details about the ride as it gets closer. Thank you all so very much.
