My Story

This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

Benjamin

    After three days of feeling like I’m walking through a furnace every time I go outside, this evening, I had to wear a jacket on my ride by the Bay🤷‍♂️

    But, I’m thankful for the cool, misty air, and the beautiful view🌉🚴‍♂️

    35 miles and lots of hills at the Bike the Bridges BrewFest! It was fun. It was challenging. I had to take a few breaks, but I biked it all the way. I definitely want to do it again next year!

    Rode to my LBS to get new bar tape for the Bike the Bridges ride on Sunday. I’ll be riding 50k to benefit the Special Olympics - and I get to do it on my birthday! I’m pretty excited. Some of the folks that participate in the Special Olympics are near and dear to my heart.

    June - Riding bikes to support kids with cancer, and Special Olympics - what a great way to spend my birth month!

    6 Jun 2019

    I didn’t want to ride today.

    I’m sore from my fall yesterday, and a little shaken by almost being hit (I was actually hit by a car on my bike a couple of years ago, and it took me a while to get back in the saddle). But, I need to get my miles in. I usually focus on a destination - an errand I need to run, or specific distance I want to cover on a specific trail.

    Today, I needed to tap into my motivation for signing up for this challenge. So, I just got on my bike, and started pedaling. No music, no distractions - just a beautiful day, and a quiet trail. I thought about little Benny and his family. I watched them via FB, as they navigated their own path through the physical and emotional pain, and the mental anguish of having a child diagnosed with cancer. Their resilience has provided my soul with an inspiration that will stay with me forever. I ride for Benny, for his sister, Josie, his brother, Jeremiah, and especially for his amazing parents, Jason, and Kelsey Woodell.

    I hope to see you guys soon, at Greg’s first Sunday at LUMC!
