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

My Story

14 Oct 2020

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 September, 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.

  • Finale
    1 Oct 2020

    Congratulations everyone, we did it! We raised over $3500 and rode 600 miles during September for the Great Cycle Challenge. All that money goes directly to the Children’s Cancer Research Fund here in Minneapolis. My ❤️ is completely filled with love. A special “Thank You” to all of the wonderful individuals and families who donated and supported this awesome cause. My donors did all the heavy lifting and just let me the peddling the bike. Awesome friends and family!!!

    Special thanks to my family who allowed all that extra saddle time.

    Thanks again everyone and you’ll be hearing from me again next year😉
