I'm Riding For

Kelleene Jolstead

Kelleene Jolstead

Almost 5 years ago, on July 24, 2014, my cousin just a few months younger than me lost her 4-year battle with synovial sarcoma at the age of 25. Kelleene was a bright light of intelligence and grace to the family and friends that she left behind. Kelleene and I exchanged letters as penpals during our pre-teen and teenage years. In her insistent way, she would often chide me for not responding in a timely manner. As bad as I was about responding sometimes, her letters revealed dreams and aspirations probably typical of many young people. Kelleene was a good student and studied hard. She was a romantic and loved reading romantic novels. She dreamed of falling in love and having a family. But cancer took that away from her. I will be riding 747 miles in June to remember her and her battle with synovial sarcoma.

My Story

27 May 2019

This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to help raise money for the Children's Cancer Research Fund which supports research for fighting cancer in kids and young adults.

I will be riding 747 miles in June in memory of my cousin, Kelleene Jolstead. Why 747 miles? Because that is the biking distance from Newman Lake, WA to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and back. Kelleene made this long trip a number of times as part of her treatment.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids and young adults the brighter futures they deserve.
