My Story

  • The numbers are in and what a success!
    28 Jul 2017

    Together we raised $2,820 for the children. I cannot thank you all enough for sponsoring me in the Great Cycle Challenge, I am humbled by your generosity. This year the challenge was very special as I rode to honor my father. I started with a goal of raising $500 and finished with $2820, I would say we knocked the cover off the ball! Through Facebook I got to meet several of the children. You would read and learn of what they were going through, then post message of support and the parents would reply to you. When the parents replied the world quickly became very small.

    As for the cycling part of the challenge I started with a goal of 500 miles and finished with 810 miles ridden during the month of June. I am not sure what my goal for next year will be but I have a number in mind, I have not advised my legs of the number! I entered into the spin ride this year as many of my miles were indoors training, My national ranking for the spin ride is 9th place (last year it was 100) and I finished in 1st place for the spin challenge in Pennsylvania. There were over 38,000 riders registered for the Great Cycle Challenge 2017.

    Again, I want to thank you all very much for supporting me but you really helped give some very special children the brighter future they deserve. After all, "All children should be living their life not fighting for it" Thank you,

    Keith

  • In case you were wondering why...
    23 Jun 2017

    In case you were wondering why I have pushed myself this month to pedal 600 plus miles in Great Cycle Challenge read the message that was sent to me. The month is not over so I am going to keep pedaling and trying to raise research dollars for these children. I am $75 from my goal.

    As you get out in this final week, remember the little lives who are fighting cancer and those brave kids who have lost their battle with this terrible disease.

    This is why we ride...

    We ride to give kids like Danny, Logan, Lilly, Connor, Kendal, Tanner and Callie the brighter futures they deserve to allow them to realize their dreams.

    We ride because ALL kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    We ride to fight kids' cancer.

    We hope you enjoy the last week of the challenge, and we cannot thank you enough for your amazing efforts to help these kids.

    Your support means more to these kids and their families than you could imagine, because it gives them the hope they need to keep fighting and the belief that one day, we can end childhood cancer...once and for all.

    But it's not over yet Keith, keep pedaling and clock those last miles...

    Let's bring it home.

  • Hit my 1st ride goal and $250 shy of my fundraising goal!
    20 Jun 2017

    This weekend I hit my 1st riding goal of 500 miles. As I am riding in honor of my father it was appropriate that I hit the 500 mile mark on Father's Day! I am at 90% of my fundraising goal. I found out that that each dollar raised when combined with grants and other programs available to the doctors become approximately $18... think just how great your gifts truly are.

    I entered myself in the spin bike challenge however I am riding on the rail trails, spin classes and my own training sessions. In the spin challenge for the State of PA I am sitting in the #1 seat. (for now) I really do appreciate all of your support for this great event. This event is the success that it is because of the people like you. The financial goal for the GCC is $4,000,000 today the funds raised $3,811.484 and there are 37,998 riders in event.

    Again, I truly appreciate the all of the support you have provided with this event... your gifts are going to benefit so many kids. You need to give yourselves a pat of the back and smile!

    But it is not over and need to get back in the saddle later today another ride... I need to reach my riding goal and with your help I will reach my fundraising goal! Thank you for your Help!

    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.

    Keith
