David Parks is currently cycling from Antler, North Dakota to Del Rio, Texas… a trip of roughly 1,500 miles, all while raising awareness of lung cancer and funds for research. As of Sept. 19, he has raised over $8,000!

While David is a survivor of lung cancer, he dedicates the journey to the memory of two childhood friends he has lost to this disease. Christopher “Kit” Blakemore and Warren Humble were diagnosed with lung cancer around the same time as David. “None of us smoked and we maintained high levels of physical fitness, but apparently lung cancer does not read resumes,” David said.
