Cyclist’s Lap Around U.S. Eases Childhood Cancer
Glenn Hirsch will have cycled over 10,000 miles by December 2017 to raise money for gentler cancer treatments.
Glenn Hirsch will complete a 10,000-mile, 17-year lap around the United States
to raise money for research into gentler treatments for childhood cancer.
Hirsch, 67, was introduced to cycling when he was a teenager. Although he took a break to finish medical school, he started again while completing his residency in central Pennsylvania. When he turned 50, Hirsch took leave from his family medical practice for a cycling tour from Seattle to Washington, D.C., to benefit the American Lung Association. He has continued to support organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation.
Hirsch’s rides have included Key West, Fla., to the Canadian border, which he crossed on his 40th wedding anniversary; Seattle to San Francisco; New Orleans to St. Augustine, Fla.; and Phoenix to New Orleans, nearly completing a full lap around the United States.
