Kaylee Rios

Kaylee Rios

In March of 2011, Kaylee was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a life-threatening childhood cancer. Over 9 years, Kaylee and her family battled cancer with all of their might while receiving treatment at Cook Children’s Medical Center, Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, and Memorial Slone-Kettering Cancer Center. Kaylee was nicknamed “Warrior Princess”, a true testament to her tenacity and personality, and a name she certainly lived up to. Her journey was long and arduous, a journey that no child should have to go through. Kaylee showed cancer who was boss and continued to fight until August 17, 2020, when she grew her angel wings. The unrelenting fight that Kaylee and her family waged against this terrible disease is inspirational and personifies love, strength, and the true meaning of family. #IRIDEFORKAYLEE #KAYLEESTRONG

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.

Jim

    10 Sep 2020

    Just a quick note to say THANK YOU to each and every one of my supporters. With your help, I have closed in on $6,000 in donations. Yesterday was so successful for the charity as a whole. Over $2M in donations were received which far away exceeded the $1.2M available for donation matching. So, the actual match was only about 50% for each donation I received yesterday - a great problem to have!

    None of this would be possible without each of you. You are true heroes to these children and their families. I will be forever grateful for your support.

    All,

    Well, week one is done and dusted. 280 miles in the legs, $4500 total donations in the bank. Not bad if you ask me! Stay tuned, though, as bigger and better things are on the way! This Wednesday is Kick Cancer's Butt Day. On this day, an anonymous donor has committed to match up to $1.2M in donations. That's right...$1.2M in donations will be matched. I will be asking each of you to share my fundraising page on this special day!

    In the mean time, enjoy this picture from my 80 mile ride today. I am very lucky to have lots of country roads to ride on!

    As always, thank you very much for your support.

    21 Aug 2020

    A quick update. Due to you LEGENDS, I have exceeded $4,200 in donations and am truly humbled by the support. There are less than 2 weeks to the challenge, and I can TASTE the sweet victory of reaching $5,000. Please, please, please continue to help by sharing my GCC page with your friends on FB, Twitter, and any other social media platform.

    As I am sure you could tell from my update on Monday, Kaylee gained her angel wings after a 9 year battle with cancer. Visit my GCC page to read about this incredibly brave 11 year old girl and her family. Please wear something purple - her favorite color - on Tuesday, the day of her memorial service.

    I want to honor her and her family, and have dedicated my September ride to her. Hopefully she sends lots of butterflies, dragonflies, and rainbows to let me know she is riding with me.

    17 Aug 2020

    Please keep Kaylee and her family in your thoughts and prayers. This young lady has stared cancer in the eye and fought valiantly for years. In the words of her father:

    You may take her body, but you will never take her spirit.

    You may test her will, but she will not go willingly.

    You try to tear us apart, but it only brings us closer together.

    You will not win this fight!

  • The Unintended Century
    9 Aug 2020

    I've said is many times already, but I am blessed! With YOUR help, I have raised almost $3,500 to help CRUSH pediatric cancer. While not the focus of my efforts, I think it is important to share that because of your generosity, I am the top fundraiser in North Carolina and in the top 20 nationwide. No small feat when you consider the number of people who are participating in this charity event.

    Yesterday, I decided to do a warmup ride before the main event. An unintended century ride for sure with 102 miles done and dusted. 40 miles the day before. Over 200 miles for the week. All to give children with cancer and their parents hope. I can't lie, I'm a little sore today. But the pain in my legs cannot compare to what these kids and their families are going through.

    Folks, we are entering the home stretch. Only 3 more weeks of fundraising. I have a personal goal to try and raise over $5,000. And I am positive I can reach that goal with your help. Please take a minute, visit my fundraising page, and click the Facebook share link. Share my daily posts. Ask your friends to join our team as we CRUSH pediatric cancer one mile at a time.

    My sponsors have been incredible. In less than two weeks, we raised over $2500 for the Children's Cancer Research Fund. That places me 1st in NC and around 35th in the country for overall fundraising efforts! But, I am not done yet!! I want to raise as much money as possible over the next two months. I know, with your help, I can eclipse the $5000 mark. Please take a moment and share my Facebook posts with your friends.
