I'm Riding For

Daina Wheeler

Daina Wheeler

We lost my stepdaughter Daina to cancer when she was only in her 20’s…. My good friend and riding buddy Barb has spent the entire year fighting cancer. She has the most positive attitude in the face of adversity, I can only admire her. I ride for both of these beloved people, as well every child ever with that life threatening diagnosis. Please support this incredibly worthwhile cause. Thank you all very much.

My Story

9 Aug 2022

This September, I am once again taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I’m riding in memory of my stepdaughter Daina but also in honor of my wonderful fun-loving friend and cycling buddy Barbara who kicked cancer’s butt this past year. But I also ride for every single child with cancer and the parents that love those babies.

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.

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.

    “Thank you Lisa, this is beyond generous. I loved being the ‘evil stepmother’ to you two - her passing had a huge impact me, especially since she was only 9 yrs younger than me. No one’s child or sister or daughter should ever die from this damn disease !! Each year this is something I can do to fight it, and it is a way to remember and honor her. ❤️❤️❤️”
