2013 marks my 7th year participating in the Philadelphia LiveStrong Challenge and my 6th as captain of Team Mintz's Mentschen.
The team is named for Jack "The Mensch" Mintz. Mentschen is (the plural of the Yiddish word Mensch) which means, "A person of integrity and honor, someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character". That was the perfect description of Jack.
Unfortunately, Jack lost his battle on January 18th, 2013.
I ride not only in memory of my friend Jack, but in support of family, friends and co-workers who are currently fighting cancer and in memory of far too many who lost that battle. Please donate what you can in support of those in your life fighing the battle.
LiveStrong provides unprecedented guidance for those who are trying to navigate the world of cancer.
Thank you and LIVESTRONG!
