A Bit About Us
How It All Started
In July of 2010, siblings Greg and Jamie Miller lost their father, Bob, to lung cancer. Next to his family, Bob’s greatest love was cycling. His bike was an extension of him. He advocated for and volunteered hours of time and energy to bring the joy and practicality of cycling to others. Shortly after his death, his children began brainstorming ways to keep both his memory and love for cycling alive. What started in 2010 as an annual memorial ride has morphed into a charity supporting Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s lung cancer research efforts. After a lot of sweat, a little blood, more than a few tears and a tremendous amount of support from friends and family, Greg and Jamie’s brainchild has blossomed into the Bob Miller Foundation (BMF).
BMF is a Seattle and Chicago based non-profit organization. We exist to advance research to decrease the mortality rate of lung cancer and metastatic breast cancer. Funding is raised through sponsorship of an annual bike ride, donations and merchandise sales. All proceeds are used to fund research at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. It is our privilege to work with talented medical professionals, artists and health enthusiasts who make possible these efforts. We hope you find our organization accessible and inspiring.
