Los Angeles. A city which has come to represent the diverse multi-cultural, ethnic and nationalities of modern America. Against this backdrop there was no more appropriate setting for raising awareness of Blood Cancer amongst ethnic minorities.
And so on a typically sunny Sunday in April, 8 riders of varied backgrounds that have come to call LA home took to the streets of Los Angeles as part of the 2015 City of Angels Fun Ride.
On a 35 mile route passing the Jewish Synagogues of La Brea, the Mexican Taquerias East of Downtown and through the bustling streets of Koreatown, a single act of solidarity raised laughs, claps and plenty of cash.
But what use is cash without donors. At the finish line amongst the splendor of the UCLA campus, a support team turned awareness into action with a donor drive, which marks just the beginning of our journey.
