My Story

10 Jun 2020

This September I am again taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! This year I have increased my mileage goal to 500 miles.

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.

As a breast cancer survivor, I know all too well the feelings associated with fighting for your life and 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.

    My MapMyRide is still connected to my page here. I apologize if you are getting notices of my rides. I cannot figure out how to unconnect the apps which I connected for last years ride. All miles and rides will be deleted on August 31 and restarted on September 1 for the actual 30 day challenge.

  • You are all heros in my book!!
    1 Jul 2020

    I would like to again thank you all for your generous support for this cause. I was looking around the GCC website and found that they have a leaderboard so just out of curiosity (because I am a tad bit competitive) I looked at it. I was #24 in the country for donations. I thought wow! I was so excited and happy about this that I posted it on Facebook and another dear friend graciously donated and bumped me up to #20. This portion of the ride is all you! Each and every one of you who donate to this great cause is a hero in your own right. My portion of this ride comes in September when I will bike that 500 miles. I thank you for having so much faith in me and I’m sure you know that I will not let you down.

    You are all heros in my book!!

  • Challenge Accepted!
    25 Jun 2020

    I just want to let all you wonderful people know that I did increase my donation goal for the September ride. I love and appreciate everyone who so graciously donated and allowed me to make my $1000 goal in record time. I know when September comes I will have my work cut out for me. 500 miles is a huge goal. My sister text me the other day and told me that the GCC (Great Cycle Challenge) has a “Hero level” which is $2500 so I thought hey!!! I can do that! If any of you know me, you know that I love a challenge, so I thought ok. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! I love and appreciate all of you for having so much faith in me! Thank you!!
