This race is for one of our good friends and an ICON in the racing industry.
Two years ago Shaun Ditty was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After treatments and removal surgery his annual screenings were all clear until recently when a red flag came back in his blood work. After further testing, his cancer has metastasized. Shaun started very aggressive chemo this week for the next 3 months, 4-6 hours each time he receives treatment for a total of 20 treatments.
If this name sounds familiar it SHOULD. Shaun is the Brother of Columbus Ohio race and event icon, as well as Ditty Printing Owner, Brian Ditty (and even more so recognized as the Son of Momma Ditty). Shaun is not the type to ask for help, but the last thing his family needs to be worrying about through all this is money.
Announced during Brian Ditty's 24-hour bike ZWIFT Bike Ride, Balls Out for Brothers Virtual Ballapalooza 5k (get it?) will take place Nov 20-22. Participants can complete their 5k during this time solo, or as a pair (see what we did there?) during this window. Register now for $29 through Nov 15th with Endo Monkey Racing. Participants will get a Medal and Shirt (made with care from Ditty Printing), there will also be a "Big" music soundtrack to download to accompany this event to help you go Balls Out for 3.1 Miles.
ALL Proceeds go to Shaun and his wife, Kimberly. There is also a donate button on the landing page listed for 100% of monies raised will be donated. If there are any funds remaining a donation will be made to cancer research.
