My Story

1 Sep 2020

This June (now September due to COVID), 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.

  • Saturday's ride
    12 Sep 2020

    Nice half century ride down to Martinsville, Indiana and back. I am getting close to the half way point in this 800 mile journey of mine.

    On the fundraising side you all have been spectacular! With your help I have raised over $4,000.00 toward my goal with less than $2,000.00 to go. Your words of encouragement have been a tremendous help, keeping me motivated even when the muscles may be a little achey.

    Thanks to you we may one day be able to say that children will no longer have to wage battle against the scourge cancer and can focus on the joys of just being a kid.

    Thanks again!

    Dirk

    1 Sep 2020

    Time to Ride! I set my original goal back in January. 600 miles sounded reasonable. But now with COVID and everything else going on it just seemed inadequate. So I have raised my riding goal to 800 miles. my fundraising goal is still $6,000. Last year it was 5,000 but I said that if I exceeded it by 50% I would shave my head. You must have really wanted to see me bald because you helped me raise almost $11,000. If I exceed my goal by 50% this year what should I do??? Let me know here or on my facebook page

    Time to go get about 50 miles in!!!
