I'm Riding For

Trenton "T-Bone" Miner

Trenton "T-Bone" Miner

I would like to mention my cousin Trenton "T-Bone" Miner. He is the person I ride for. He was diagnosed when he was 15 with a rare brain tumor and after surgery, and chemo treatments for 3.5 years he lost his battle. But he never lost his hope. He was my cousin and my friend. More importantly everyone who met him was better for it. He fought hard enough to get a semester of college in at the University of Iowa and everytime anyone visited him he would always tell them as they departed, "Thanks for coming". He was one of a kind. Every ride this year I've seen a Cardinal on the trail and I like to believe it is him watching over me. Please support my ride so maybe we can develop better treatments, so maybe we can find a way to stop these diseases.

My Story

16 Sep 2022

Hello Everyone

I know you have received information about this from me in the past. I also understand that you may already have a charity which you donate to yearly and that is awesome!

On Kick Cancer's Butt Day we raised 2.2M dollars. This day was special because all donations received were matched up to a total of 1.5M dollars. Wow! That's amazing sponsorship from businesses instead of just individuals.

So far this year we've raised over 7M for the Children's Cancer Research Fund which is a non profit dedicated to funding grants for research initiatives aimed at discovering new cancer treatments for children.

I believe in this charity.

They are transparent. You can research them in Charity Navigator if you would like to know more.

A good portion of the funds we raise go directly to families to help combat financial difficulties that arise when these rare diseases attack a child. It is very expensive.

You can donate through the link on this page or contact me if you are more comfortable donating in person.

Finally, I would like to mention my cousin Trenton "T-Bone" Miner. He is the person I ride for. He was diagnosed when he was 15 with a rare brain tumor and after surgery, and chemo treatments for 3.5 years he lost his battle. But he never lost his hope. He was my cousin and my friend. More importantly everyone who met him was better for it. He fought hard enough to get a semester of college in at the University of Iowa and everytime anyone visited him he would always tell them as they departed, "Thanks for coming". He was one of a kind. Every ride this year I've seen a Cardinal on the trail and I like to believe it is him watching over me.

Please support my ride so maybe we can develop better treatments, so maybe we can find a way to stop these diseases.

Thank you for your time today!
