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.

Cathy

  • Week 2
    17 Jun 2018

    I'm at the half way point of the challenge! so here are a few stats:

    Day 17 of 30 day challenge

    $6,685 dollars raised - WooHoo!

    16 days out of 17 days of riding.

    314 miles rode/500 mile is the goal

    186 goal miles left to go (and of course, probably some additional)

    Super hot weekend, but got in 95 miles. Was hoping for 50 each day of the weekend, but MAN was it hot today!

    enclosed is a picture of me during the ride today, and then after some hydration!

    Thanks again everyone for your support!

    Stay cool.

    11 Jun 2018

    Sadly, a one day business trip to NYC did not give an opportunity for a bike ride today, other than this Citibike in the office :(

    I think this only counts as .0000001 miles

  • One week done!
    8 Jun 2018

    So today was Day 7 of the challenge. 119 miles, 7 days of riding, $6,270 raised! It's been a blustery, windy start. Somehow headwinds no matter which way I roll? Oh well, nothing to the challenges that kids and families face each day fighting cancer. Tomorrow will be a rainy day, but I'll be out there, because, we'll...it's just rain and that's nothing.

    Thanks everyone for your support!
