Phinney resident completes Seattle-Boston bike trek, raises over $11,000 for cancer research

Phinney resident Dale Steinke – who, along with his partner Doree Armstrong founded this very Blog many years ago – has recently finished biking over 4000 miles to help the battle to cure cancer.

Taking part in the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center’s annual Obliteride fundraiser, Dale took his participation to the next level by more than doubling the amount of total miles traveled over anyone else. Dale says that his motivation is “to cure cancer in memory of friends and family taken, and to honor those waging war against it.”

Upon arriving in Boston in late July (dipping his front wheel in the Atlantic in the picture above), Dale had this entry in his blog

What seems like a long time ago, I dipped my bike’s rear wheel in the chilly waters of the Pacific at Puget Sound in Seattle. Now after more than 4,100 miles and 56 days (48 of them on the bike), I’ve completed my bicycle trip to Boston, dipping my front wheel in the comfortably warm Atlantic.

While my ride may be over, my support of this cause is not. We’ve all seen too many loved ones suffer as they waged their fights. With your support, we’ll make sure fewer people have to go through that and more people will have positive outcomes and more time with their loved ones.

Dale has not yet hit his ultimate goal of $15,000 raised, so if you would like to help be a part of curing cancer you can still donate to the fund here.
