My Story

5 Aug 2020

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.

For every $500 I raise I will add 200 miles to my ride, would love to raise $1500 and would be happy to ride 600 miles for this cause!

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.

    Rain was coming so one ride today. First 2 days I am at 49 miles.

    In this picture is one of three bridges that connect Cape to the mainland, this the railroad bridge. It will come down when the train arrives! The bike path I was riding today is about 7 miles long that goes along the canal.
