All I've known over the years

Everyone knows someone who has been affected by this terrible disease. If you haven't had the chance to lend some support I welcome whatever you can contribute. I'll be riding in June to support and honor all those who have or are battling for their lives. Time to do something to help eliminate this for others in the future. Thanks to all those who find it in their hearts to join me and lend support. Ride on

My Story

  • Riding is done - still time to help make a difference.
    1 Jul 2017

    Thanks to all who helped make this a successful adventure again this year. Number 2 in the nation in funds raised is pretty darn good if I must say so myself. $16,280 was pretty awesome and only possible due to the generosity of so many.

    The riding may be done for now but the need for funds goes on.

    You can still donate to help the cause and no donation is too small.

  • Thanks again
    29 Jun 2017

    Thank you to all who supported me or any riders this month. This event is nothing without your support.

    My thoughts are with all the families who have or will deal with Childhood Cancer. My wish is for a cure to be found soon and put an end to the tragedy.

    If my efforts can help that a small amount it's all worth it.

  • Honored and Humbled
    16 Jun 2017

    Never really expected to land at #1 in the country - even if only for the moment. I read stories from other riders and feel honored to be in their company. So many tragedies that will hopefully help lead us to an eventual cure.

    Thanks to all the riders and their supporters out there and their dedication to a great cause. I'm glad I could make a small difference.

  • Cancer's Butt has been Kicked today
    15 Jun 2017

    Thru some generous support I think we did a pretty good job kicking some Butt today - Over $8000 added to the donations. I sit here writing this humbled again by the support. My sincere Thanks to all who have helped support the cause so far. But hey we are only half way there - two more weeks to go and still plenty of time to support the cause. Every dollar can help get one step closer to the cure.

    Added some sleeves to help avoid sunburn and keep a little cooler. Seems to work based on the long ride Saturday.

  • Hot day today and had close encounter with a deer....
    16 May 2017

    So it was around 90 degrees today and I'm just cruising down a hill when I see a deer on the side of the road. He gets scared and runs right in front of me....missed me by 15 ft or so but that is close enough. Can't wait to see what else comes up over the next six weeks.

    This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? I have heard too many horror stories of the battles so many have fought. 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.

    No time like the present to make a difference!!!

    Thank you.

    Dan
