“I am thankful and humbled for those of you that donated to my ride page for the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC). I set a goal to raise over $20,000.00, and at the close of the fundraising drive on Sunday November 18th, the total on my ride page was $20,390.50 I will be with the Miami Dolphins to present 100% of your donation, along with all other donations from the ride, to UM Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center on the field during Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks on the 25th. The total that we raised (you and I) put us into the top 5 fundraising riders out of about 2,000 total riders.” Chris Palermo
