Fighting Cancer Coast To Coast

Doug Sulkala, an account manager at Ingalls Advertising, is biking cross country with four friends to raise money in the war against cancer.
Each of the participants has been touched by the disease in some way. Sulkala’s stepbrother and fellow rider, Scott Ward, lost his mother to cancer when he was seven.
The “Coast to Coast for Cancer” group left San Francisco last week. They plan to ride about 70 miles a day, arriving in Sturbridge, Mass., on July 31. The riders are hauling about 30 pounds of gear, including tents, sleeping bags, food and bicycle repair equipment.
The trip will take them 3,700 miles, through 12 states in 54 days, and raise $15,000 for The Jimmy Fund at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
Ingalls creates ads for The Jimmy Fund, and the agency has pledged $1 for every mile Sulkala travels. –David Gianatasio
