You were needed in heaven for more important things but we do miss you!

My Story

17 Apr 2019

I lost a great friend and person to this horrible disease. I never really understood the whole impact of her passing...until I became a parent. I think about her often and still miss her. Riding for you Holly Peterson.

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.

  • Cuyuna Dirt
    16 May 2019

    Had the great opportunity to take the day off of work and head to Crosby/Ironton neighborhood. What great fun the Cuyuna trails are and rode 22 really hard miles. That read dirt from the mines is just awesome. Got a bit on the fancy jersey;) Going back for sure in June!

  • Kick Butt Supporters - 4th in the Nation:)
    9 May 2019

    WOW! I have the greatest friends and family. Thank you everyone who has and will sponsor towards this cause. The fundraising portion has been a blast and makes me feel great. I like talking to people and hearing the support and stories. Many out there have been touched in one way or another by this horrible disease. I am currently # 4 in the Nation for supporters but lets not stop there. We have blown past the original goal and just passed the $3,500 mark!!! Lot of work to come in June but I am ready for it. Especially since they sent me a new superhero jersey to wear. The batman jersery was designed by the kids as a thank you to the supporter. I will pretend to be a superhero but the kids are the real hero! Keep the support coming and share this fundraisers with others!

    Thanks so much everyone! We are making a difference :)

  • Kansas Dirt
    1 May 2019

    Just keep spinning the wheels and conditioning even while out of town. Got the opportunity to put on 25 miles on this sweet ride while I was in Kansas. Riding # 11293 as hard as I did tested the frame weld and my confidence in them. No mechanicals and fine tuned it.

    Fundraising is going great. I have a lot of awesome friends and family. Keep the love coming.

    Since I have such awesome sponsors, I received this colorful jersey in the mail to help promote my ride. It’s pretty sweet and my helmet almost matches😉 The photo was taken on a work commute to the MSP airport, just off the 494 bridge. Yes I did ride my bike to work😱 I guess I need to purchase some tight fitting spandex shorts to go along with my shaved legs.
