I'm Riding For

Avery

Avery

Avery is 9 1/2 years old. Avery was diagnosed in May with Germ Cell Ovarian Cancer. She is finishing up her fourth and final round of chemotherapy. She is one tough little cookie! I hope that I am able to write here next year that she is cancer free!

My Story

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.

Dirk

  • Friday is a good day!
    28 Jun 2019

    Tomorrow Avery takes her final chemotherapy treatment and gets to ring the bell at the hospital! We have decided that Sunday is the day Avery gets to shave my head. It should be a hideous sight but it was all worth it. It is not to late to add to that spectacular total if you are so inclined!
