I'm Riding For

Finley Tyson Carter

Finley Tyson Carter

On January 21,2021 Finley Tyson Carter gained his angel wings. I ride again this year in memory of Finley. I signed up today as yesterday was his 1 year anniversary in heaven. Last year was my second year to ride for this challenge and I chose to ride in memory of Finley. I followed his journey the first year that I rode. It broke my heart to see his little body go through so much. I hope to ride for many more years so these children may one day not have to go through this. Finley was 15 months old when he gained his wings.

My Story

22 Jan 2022

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.

Last year I rode in memory of Finley as he gained his wings on the 21st of January

at the young age of 18 months. This year I continue to ride in memory of Finley to raise awareness of how these children have a much difficult life trying to fight cancer and some never get the chance to live.

Please sponsor me so we can save these children.

Thank you!
