  • The Last Day
    30 Jun 2017

    Where did the month go?

    This event has been such an amazing experience. It all got started when Kris Sands, a member of our cycling team decided to register to do the Great Cycle Challenge. Things snowballed from there. As a team we originally thought we might be able to raise $1000.

    We were very wrong.

    The support has continued to pour in. We have raised over $7,000!!!

    Thank you all!

    I've hit my pledged miles, but we have a few miles to ride to hit the team goals. So today I'm riding a few extra miles to support the Children's Cancer Research Fund and McLain Race Team, and to just put a smile on my face.

    The weather held out over the weekend and I have just less than 17 miles to reach my 300 mile pledge! I remain humbled by all of your support. I've raised well over my revised $2,000 goal. As a team, McLain Race Team has already raised over $6,500!

    It's raining here in Traverse City today. If I get a chance I hope to get out and finish up my remaining miles.

    Well, it was a great weekend for the Great Cycle Challenge! Perfect biking weather. Summer is finally here in Northern Michigan. After my ride to work this morning I'm now at 82 miles. When I start getting tired my mind shifts to my commitment to this cause. If the kids currently under going chemo and other cancer treatment can find the strength to continue, then I can too.

  • Day One of the Great Cycle Challenge!
    1 Jun 2017

    The support McLain Race Team and I have received so far has truly been amazing! We initially set a very modest goal of raising $1,000 for this great cause, not knowing what to expect. That initial goal is now long gone in the rearview mirror! We're already over $4,000 and we've raised our goal to $5,000! Thank you all!

    Unfortunately, I'm not starting out on the right foot with my riding goal. Due to other commitments I won't be able to ride today. Now I'll have to play "catch up" to average 10 miles a day to meet my 300 mile goal. But don't fret. The weekend starts tomorrow, and I'll be sure to get my miles in!

  • Wow! Thank you all!

    I am very humbled by all of the support.

    As most or all of you are aware, I've been battling throat cancer for the past 18 months. The recurrence in November resulted in a laryngectomy. Despite the hole in my neck, I'm determined to get on with my life, and getting back on my mountain bike has been a big part of that.

    As difficult as dealing with my cancer diagnosis been for me, I try to keep it in perspective. I'm 55 years old and, all things considered, in pretty good shape. I have a great life.

    When I think about how difficult my recovery has been for me, I can't help but think of all of the young kids out there going through the same type of cancer treatment. They deserve a better chance.

    This is just a small way for me to help out.

    Thank you all for your support!

    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.

    Dan
