Riding for Ryan

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

Hi Everyone,

For anyone out there who has had their life F-ed up by cancer, I wanted to let you know about a fundraising ride that I’m doing in about 2 months – the Pan-Mass-Challenge (PMC) – 186 miles across the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

My brother-in-law, Ryan Graham, fought osteosarcoma (a form of bone cancer) for many years – ultimately dying from it and leaving behind a wife (Lindsey) and young son (Ben).

Lindsey and Ben are doing great now and moving on with their lives – and we will all have Ryan in our memories forever.

I’m a proud supporter of the PMC because it is leading a charge to beat cancer. In fact, last year 100% of rider-raised revenue went directly to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s tireless commitment to finding a cure.

The PMC course passes just a few miles from our new business in Plymouth Massachusetts – 3 Waves Bed & Breakfast – and we’ll be hosting a house full of riders and donating those proceeds to our fundraising efforts.

If you can, please join us in donating to fight cancer. F@#K Cancer.
