I'm Riding For

Samantha (Sammi) Casey

Samantha (Sammi) Casey

This year I am riding for Sammi Casey, daughter of great friends Doug and Nazie. Sammi is an inspiration to all who are fighting this terrible affliction. She is winning and will accomplish some very amazing things in her future. Go Sammi! Peace

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.

    Let this be a lesson to you kids. Reading is the most important thing you can do for your future but you must take time to eat. Fish and chips is an ideal meal. :-)

    I received this information from The Great Cycle Challenge.

    Here are just some of the key stats so far this month:

    40,620 riders are taking part from every state in the country.

    177,416 individual donations have been received to support your efforts.

    $12,089,866 has been raised (so far), which is amazing.

    Together, we've logged 213,054 rides and ridden a total of 3,032,805 miles which is the equivalent of pedaling for 9,039 days (non-stop).

    ...and we're not done yet.

    Thanks to everyone! Peace, Jim
