I'm Riding For

15,700 American children diagnosed with cancer each year

My Story

25 Jul 2021

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! This also means my family - wife Melissa, 9 year old Landon, and 2 year old Bryce - are coming along too! We will each ride 300 miles - 1200 miles total! This is our second year! Last year we raised over $4000 and biked over 200 miles each exceeding our goals!

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.

Matt

    This month, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! My goal is to ride 300 miles throughout the month, and I have been pedaling day and night to reach my target - 235 miles so far! Why am I doing this? Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in the United States. Today is Kick Cancer's Butt Day, where ALL donations will be matched by supporters of the charity up to $1.5M - sponsor me today and your donation will be MATCHED!
