All the sweet kids

All the sweet kids

No child should have to only know what it is like to have cancer. Every child deserves to go out and play without a care in the world. Let’s help them

    Hi everyone! I hope you are getting your bike out and tuned up. Yes it sure is hot 🥵 out there but we don’t have a choice just like the kids don’t have a choice 🙁. Talk to everyone you can. You might be surprised! I was talking to my dentist and she has donated for that last few years. This organization is easy to talk about and such an amazing cause. I mean the little kids just tug at your heart strings don’t they?

    I am close to superhero jersey status and plan to make my jerseys into a quilt to auction off.

    Please try and donate a least a little something to yourself if you can. I KNOW this is a really tough year

    Your leader,

    Kathy

    Welcome Albert, Chad and Mia!

    Team, I am so happy you signed up to help KICK CANCER’S BUTT! I see some of you have jumped right in and I will need to raise the Team Goal since we have already exceeded it!! While it may seem a bit early it is a great time to tune up your bike and get out there. Every effort to get the word out helps and every contribution is one step further to beat this monster. Last year I rode 520 miles to see if I could. Met THAT challenge and now that I retired I hope to continue to ride and get the word out. All you good souls will as well!!

    If you are in Tampa Bay I will be setting up rides and if not go to your local chapter and look for or set up rides yourself. More the merrier. It would be great to recruit friends and family for this amazing cause.

    If you have children, encourage them to join your rides and maybe have a lemonade sale. Show them the stories of children their age.

    If you have not joined the Facebook page GCC Friends USA I would recommend it. Pretty sure the link is on your page or maybe I can invite you.

    I will share that by showing how cancer has personally impacted me, family and friends helped my fundraising substantially. Everyone has a story or knows someone that has been impacted. I know that this year has been tough for some of you and many out there. Just do what you can. No pressure at all. There is place where you can donate to yourself which is a good start.

    Not only can you share your page but there is also a link to set up a fundraiser on Facebook. I know that helped me because I am uncomfortable asking for donations…better after 5 years but it is an awesome tool.

    Personalize your page. Your story helps.

    I will keep in touch about rides and of course to cheer the team on!!

    Please reach out with any questions.

    With a hopeful heart we can make a difference,

    Kathy

We have a nice head start. Let’s practice those miles for September. I might be increasing mine...maybe for more $$$$ for the Kids. Remember, if you raise $500 you get a pretty cool jersey.

    This September, Team Tampa Bay Cycling For The Kids is 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 we are raising funds through our 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 us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.

    Kathy
