  • Working toward a new goal
    7 Jun 2017

    I increased my goal from 150 to 200 miles. I am now at 134 miles and plan on riding beyond my new goal. Thanks to everyone that contributed and sent their encouragement. I saw a doe and her baby today. That makes countless birds of all types, a doe and her young baby, a snapping turtle crossing the bike path, horses, and a pet pig on a leash. This of course does not include all of the runners, walkers, fisherman, and bikers I have encountered on my trips thus far. :-)

    I thouroughly enjoyed my first ride. Naperville to Batavia and back. Kept my students, those that donated, and all the children fighting this terrible illness in my mind the whole time.

    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.

    Jim
