I want to thank all of you who donated or supported me and the kids through this challenge. It means a lot to us ❤️ We will always help raise awareness and funds for a cure for childhood cancer.
"I feel so accomplished"... my sons words as we met our team goal. This month was amazing. Alyssa and Drew joined me in this challenge and really took it to heart. We met all our goals and plan to do it again next year.
Today we drove to Boston to rent Blue bikes and ride on the Emerald Necklace Trail. It was certainly an adventure! I loved everything about today, being with the kids on a beautiful day, riding around the city and taking in the beauty around us - even seeing a few colleges, and riding past Fenway Park. I did this ride in honor of Alyssa who had radiation treatments in Boston and Johnny Morris who was diagnosed as a baby with Neuroblastoma. He's one tough kid who should never have had to deal with cancer. He still fights and we fight with him and every other child facing this tough battle.
We found a nice ride through a few neighborhoods.
My longest ride!
Today was awesome! I wasn’t sure where I was going to ride and spent a lot of time looking for long trails until it hit me, I’m riding to the hospital where Alyssa was treated. I mapped out my route and hit the road. It was definitely a feel good ride and meant a lot to me to reach my destination. I stood on the lawn and prayed for every child and hope that someone saw me in my caped shirt and smiled.
Rode 10.6 miles at the Upper Falls Rail Trail. I saw several messages along the trail that made me stop and reflect. Some spray painted on and others etched in stone as a memorial to someone special, all were appreciated.
A big THANK YOU to all of you who donated to my Facebook fundraiser where all donations were matched. I'm happy to say that $862.50 was matched giving us a grand total of $1,725.00 raised in one day! Drew and Alyssa are amazed by the amount of generosity as am I. I wasn't sure I'd reach my $1,000.00 goal let alone almost triple it. I'm more committed to completing this challenge than ever - there is still work to do!
I saw this rock on my ride today and it made me smile ~ I suppose that was it's purpose!
Kick Cancer’s Butt day was amazing! I’m in awe of the generosity of my friends and family, I love you all!
I came home from a long, exhausting day at school and hopped on the bike. I was energized by the donations and rode 12 miles ❤️🎗❤️
A hard 11.59 mi at 6:15 am 😅 Start the day right!
Many of you know I’m a Peloton rider most days and recently took to the roads for this challenge. I’ll be honest, I’m enjoying outdoor riding a lot and will do half of my miles that way if I can. However, it’s important to ride safely and when I can. Now that I’m back to work and my schedule is very different I ride at home on my Peloton and challenge myself with new longer rides out of my comfort zone. I love it! I’m doing this for all the kids who struggle everyday with cancer and can’t ride their bike. I’m doing this because it’s personal and it feels good to give to an organization who’s sole purpose is to find a cure! Have a great day!
No matter how far I go every mile matters 😊 6.76mi All for the kids!
Todays 11 mile ride was done in memory of a friends niece, Mia, who sadly passed away. No child should ever have to deal with cancer!
Well, today was a rough one but I managed to ride 10 miles and dedicated that ride to a family member who needs my support right now.
I did 3 rides today to meet my personal first day goal of 20 miles. I started with a 30 minute Peloton ride for 7.66 mi.,
while working I did a 30 min. scenic ride around Sydney Australia for 4.86 mi., another scenic ride for 20 min. at the Olympic National for 3.26 mi., and finally, Drew and I hit the road around town for 4.88 miles. phew! Not every day will be like this but I was excited to start this adventure.
