Team Profile - Gregg

Whether we know it or not, we all know many people with serious afflictions such as MS, cancer, diabetes and mental health disorders. Several wonderful organizations exist for the purpose of investing in medical research to find cures for these and other diseases. What many don’t know is these organizations do so much more for families dealing with disease. They provide sufferers with education, community, counseling, equipment, scholarships, and physical assistance. The also provide the rest of us an opportunity to come alongside sufferers and join them in their journey. A difference is being made!

Gregg started small by struggling to raise the minimum $250 for BikeMS in 1998 and riding 150 miles in a weekend to raise money for several people he knew with MS. In 2006, he joined a growing cycling team that was focused on raising funds through a couple charity rides. Gregg took over as captain of that team in 2010. In 2012, the team was in need of a sponsor and Gregg contacted Pete Robinson to propose merging Pete’s Clean Management team with Gregg’s team. Pete shared his vision of Team C4C and the decision was made! Gregg is proud Team C4C has ridden in several events around the country to raise funds for a number of charities and plans to increase that number this year! Team C4C is making a difference!

Gregg married his wonderful wife, Yancey, in 1997. He is a proud dad to Debbie (married to Blake), and grandfather to Daniel, Sarah, and Luke. Gregg is blessed to ride for and in memory of a long and growing list of friends, family members, coworkers, and acquaintances with MS, cancer, diabetes and mental health issues. Soli Deo Gloria!
