My Story

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.

Charles

  • Through the pain I can see the finish line!
    30 Sep 2020

    Friends, Family and all,

    I have less that 20 miles to ride, which I will complete tonight after I get home from work. It has been a interesting journey, to be sure. Up until this summer I have ridden on to be somewhere or just for leisure, never for a cause. I am proud to be apart of this challenge and to fight for the Kids and against Kids' cancer. The last week has been especially tough as my 58 year old knees started to hurt with every push of the pedal. I took a three day break from ridding to see if my knees would get any better. They didn't. I wasn't quite sure I could finish. I had only 6 days left and 131 miles to complete my goal of 500. With the aid of ice packs, knee wraps and analgesics, I will get to the finish line.

    But, as I have said in previous posts: this is nothing compared to what children go through every day when battling cancer. So, please if you can donate today.

    Today is the last day of this challenge!

    Thank you to all that have contributed and will contribute!

  • Going Beyond
    20 Aug 2020

    A coworker asked me if everyone that rides in this challenge is fit (he was looking at the poster). I said no and there are those that are riding to get fit while raising money for a good cause. I can imagine that for some of us it is a real challenge. We have to push ourselves beyond our comfort zone and our bodies through zones of pain. As I ride this month to prepare for the September official riding, I can only think of the pain that kids with cancer must go through and their daily struggle to understand what they are fighting and fear of not knowing what the future will bring for them. My muscle pain and my struggle to get up every morning to ride before I go off to work is nothing compared to what these children must go through. I have raised my miles and the donation goal for the third time. I would hope that you will join me in reaching these goals. #GCCUSA
