My Story

7 Jul 2020

I've signed up for the 2020 Great Cycle Challenge and will be riding this September to fight kids' cancer! My goal is to pedal 200 miles throughout the month and I hope to exceed that number!

I am riding for Andrea's twin brother, David Allen Rackley, who passed away at the age of 16 from brain cancer. Cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in the United States – 38 children die of cancer every week. Kids should be living life, NOT fighting for it.

Please support me by making a donation today. All funds raised will support Children's Cancer Research Fund to continue their work to develop innovative treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Thank you for your support! Follow me in my journey from training to the rides in September. I'll give you some updates and challenge you to dig deep - in your pockets and in your heart!

Let's do this thing!

  • My Tribe Rocks!
    3 Sep 2020

    Everyone who donated so far has propelled me to my goal of $2,500! You have also helped me exceed this goal as we have collectively added $2,662 to the larger $7 million raised so far! Think about that! That's $7 MILLION dollars to help fund critical research for childhood cancer. I get chills!

    I want to thank you all for your support so far! This was definitely a team effort and it is extremely humbling to see us all come together. No matter your political side (or any other side of anything else) we can come together to help end this terrible disease!

  • It's On!
    2 Sep 2020

    The GCC started yesterday and I was able to get 10 miles in last night with my buddy, Jerry. As Jerry said yesterday "that's 10 miles I didn't have". Little by little we'll get there! Today is a raffle day! I'll be raffling off $20 at Final Gravity. Just sponsor me for $10 (or more) and you'll be entered to win. Winners selected randomly! Stay tuned to follow my adventure.

  • On Track for 40 miles this week!
    30 Jul 2020

    This week I'll be able to complete my weekly goal of 40 miles!! This means a few more weeks of 40 and I'll raise my weekly goal of 50 miles. The rest of my training will be focusing on maintaining 50 miles each week to make sure I am ready for September.

  • Weekly Ride Goals - Coming Up Short
    21 Jul 2020

    I've been trying to ride 40 miles a week for the past several weeks. I am making progress, but came up short yet again. Despite the heat, I am determined to hit 40 (and even exceed it) this week with 10 miles a few times before work and the heat. Then, come the weekend, it'll be easier and more manageable to hit the goal or, like I said, exceed it.

    Made it to $1k yesterday! Still hoping more peeps from Philly see and react to my post and propel into first place in Virginia for fundraising!

    Tomorrow, I'll hit another 10 miles before work!

  • RVA is Hot!
    20 Jul 2020

    This weekend brought excessive heat to RVA. Feels like 108?! It’ll be 80 degrees at 7am tomorrow morning. I was supposed to ride my longest distance today along the Cap Trail. Tomorrow I am thinking I’ll get some time on the trainer - INSIDE! Looks like Friday we are finally getting a break so I’ll be good and rested to rack up some more training miles. Hopefully I can get in 5 miles or so each morning before 8am. Thanks for your support so far!

  • You are Amazing!
    9 Jul 2020

    Thank you to everyone who has donated! Your efforts keep making me increase my goal and that's what it's all about.

    Training-wise I have logged about 17 miles already this week and my longest days are this weekend. Stay with me throughout this thing! I am also completing the Conquer the Capital Trail Challenge this summer (I mean, might as well) - Richmond to Williamsburg - 52 miles.

  • Fundraising & Training Are Underway!
    7 Jul 2020

    Thank you for your donations so far! If you haven't donated, there's still plenty of time, but I would really love to hit that next milestone of $500! With $500 donations, I get a free cycling jersey which will help motivate me and bring attention to the challenge.

    While training all summer, I will be updating you all with pictures, videos and other challenges to help you dig deep into those pockets! :)
