My Story

4 Jun 2020

In September 2020, I will once again take part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! This will be my second year participating and I've raised my riding goal (601 miles) AND fundraising goal ($10,000).

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.

    I haven't written any updates for a while so here goes. I looked at how many miles I rode this last week and it made me stop and ponder. What if I rode that many miles every week? Ok - that won't happen but 189 miles just this last week!

    Yesterday I rode hoping that I wouldn't get rained on. I did receive a sprinkling but nothing significant. I just pedaled harder!

    I am also involved in a "scavenger hunt" with a women's offroad group so it was a day to complete one of the first challenges - finding a sunflower and taking a picture of my ride with the sunflower in the background. Sunflowers are almost gone here in the PNW, especially after the big winds we had a couple of days ago. I almost had the picture right but forgot to include tires and wheels so went back later in the afternoon and did that activity the correct way.

    I cannot thank each of you enough for your support of my efforts. It means a lot and I'm so close to my fundraising goal.

    If you feel so led I would be honored if you would share my fundraising link with others. But there's no coercion to do so at all on my part.

    I just appreciate each of you so much.
