Robyn Leigh Rothermel

In honor of my sister, Robyn, I'm hitting the road bike this September to raise money for the fight against children's cancer. Robyn endured leukemia as a child and has grown into one of my greatest inspirations. Fittingly, Robyn's birthday is September 7th!

My Story

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.

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.

Will

  • THANK YOU!!! $4,000 Fundraising Goal Met!
    25 Sep 2020

    Thanks to the incredible support of you all, I've hit my fundraising goal of $4,000 just a few short days before the end of the month-long challenge! With my most recent ride this morning, I am not just 10+ miles from my mileage goal (400 miles)!

    I'll be sure to send out an update when the challenge is wrapped up, but I did want to take a moment to acknowledge all of the love and support I've felt along the way. It's made for an exciting and motivating month in spite of the challenging times we are all living in.

    And of course, I couldn't do any of this without my incredible bride Laurel--an amazing wife and mother of three little ones that holds it all together, especially when dad is off on his bike! Love, Will

    THANK YOU!!! $4,000 Fundraising Goal Met!

  • Halfway there!
    9 Sep 2020

    After a wild 103-mile ride on Saturday and 25 more this morning, I'm halfway through my 400-mile challenge that goes through the end of September. On Monday, we celebrated Robyn's birthday in Ithaca and it was awesome to have her meet her nieces, Reese & Charlotte! Brooks is also a big fan of auntie Robyn :).

    Today is also a special day because any donation received on Sept. 9th will be matches up to $1,200,000! Please pass along to those who might be interested in supporting this cause!

    Having raised $3,463.56, we are 87% of the way to our goal of $4,000 that will equate to $10/mile when I hit my goal! It's been an incredible ride so far and I'm excited for the next 3 weeks.

    Thank you all for your support and stay tuned!

    Love,

    Will

    Halfway there!

  • 6 days until I hit the road for 400 miles!
    26 Aug 2020

    Hello from Ithaca, New York!

    We are less than a week away from hitting the road for 400 miles as part of the Great Cycle Challenge to raise awareness and funds for the Children's Cancer Research Fund!

    Your support of my ride is incredibly appreciated and to date, you've help raise $3,184 --good for 8th in the state of NY and 59th in the country! My new goal is $4,000 ($10/mile) by the end of the ride on Sept. 30th. If you know of others who might like to support, please pass along this link: https://greatcyclechallenge.com/Riders/WillRothermel

    I will keep you posted along the way, but thank you all so much for your generous support and words of encouragement!

    Love and miss you,

    Will

    p.s. as you can see, Brooks is jacked up about dad's new GCC Spiderman jersey for having raised $2,500+!
