I have adults in the mix of names too but more to rid us all of the scourge of cancer.

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.

Linda

  • Down to the Last Bit of Fundraising
    20 Jun 2019

    I want to thank each and every one of you for your support in this journey to #kickcancerinthebutt. I am now $395 shy of my reset goal of $6,000. I would like to ask you to share this message and my link. I will be at or less than 100 miles after tomorrow's ride. It would be fantastic to be at or beyond the fundraising goal as well!

  • 11 Days to Go!
    19 Jun 2019

    As of tomorrow, Wednesday, June 19, there are just 11 days left to complete my 400 mile pledge. Will I accomplish it? But of course! Today was a ride of just over 34 miles (roundtrip around some blocks! HA) putting me at a total as of today of 268 miles with 132 left. Piece of Cake! After my ride this Thursday I will have less than 100 miles left and less than $400 left of fundraising. I would love to at a minimum meet that goal and better yet blow right through it. It's time to #kickcancersbutt for the kids and for everyone.

    I want to THANK YOU again for supporting my efforts. It means a lot and I'm proud of what I'm accomplishing! But I couldn't do it without the support that I've received and for that I am forever grateful.

    God Bless You!

  • Kick Cancer In the Butt Day Results!
    13 Jun 2019

    Yesterday was a phenomenal day for the entire Great Cycle Challenge riders! THANK YOU to everyone that has donated to help support my efforts. With the donations made yesterday and the match made available my initial goal was surpassed by just over $200!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    Yesterday there was the opportunity to have donations matched up to $900,000 and the lot of us blew past that number y $450,056 total donations. With that said, they wanted to make sure that all donations yesterday were matched so they proportioned them out with the following calculation:

    $900,000 / $1,350,056 = 66.66% - so we've matched 66.66% of the total you raised on Kick Cancer's Butt Day and we have added this to your fundraising page as a single donation titled 'Kick Cancer's Butt Day Matched Donation'.

    None of this would be possible (outside of the riding) without every single one of my supporters and to that I am ever greatful. Onwards and upwards, I've upped my goal since there are just over two weeks left in the month. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

    I appreciate you more than words can ever convey.

  • Riding Onward!!!
    8 Jun 2019

    Well, I've completed 131ish miles in the first week! Today was almost 31 miles according to Strava (32 and change according to the bike computer) around Skagit Valley. What started out as a trip to Hobby Lobby ended up being a ride around the valley with a stop at Snow Goose Produce for one of their immodest ice cream cones. Trust me when I say that 1 scoop is more than enough for one person! Weather turned out great and it helped me to work a little bit more on my farmer tan!!! Oh and …..P.S. hard to believe but that was my first Snow Goose Ice Cream Cone in all the years we've lived in Skagit Valley. Hard to believe, but it's truth.

    Riding Onward!!!
