Story

We thank you for joining us in the growing battle against cancer, and remembering the joyous life of Ray Meisels!  
Ray was diagnosed with Melanoma in late January, and courageously fought for six months. During his battle, Ray never failed to share his love, his smile, or his laughter. Ray was our hero and guide through this life. A man that was true to his word and to his family. A man with a soft front and strong back. A provider of care and home…something we all strive to emulate. 

Ray was an avid athlete, and in his honor and the fight against cancer, we’re riding through Vienna, VA on September 30th, Ray’s hometown of 20 years.  Andy Souders, Director and co-founder of Pedal It Out said, "Cancer sucks.  We can beat it by working together!"  I agree. Let's ride!! 

We invite you to join our team, Miles for Meisels, through active.com (event code 0319). Just like Ray's Thanksgiving, with open arms and room at the table, we hope you’ll join us!  The more the merrier.  You can donate here to support Pedal It Out, an awesome, local foundation who puts family and team work above all else while raising funding and awareness for Melanoma Research.  Team Miles for Meisels will be donating all money raised in Ray's honor and legacy to Pedal It Out.

Thank you for the outpouring of love, support and memories in this difficult time.  We hope to memorialize him in this inspiring event together as a family! Grab your bike and your sunscreen!  We’ll see you in September.

Follow this link to join the ride!  Many of us are signed up to ride 12 miles, but there are several distance options to choose from!  https://www.active.com/vienna-...  Be sure to use event code 0319 to join Team Miles for Meisels!

Ray was a wonderful man. He was kind and caring. He always treated me as family and I remember all the good times at the Meisels house. He will truly be missed by all that had the pleasure of meeting him. Love the Years Family

The moment Ray and I met he treated me like a friend. The world lost another good person. I am very sorry he is gone. I do have fond memories of our young children camping in Prince William Park and of our white water canoe trips. Ray Rest In Peace. May our paths cross again.
