I'm Riding For

Sophia Kappen

Sophia Kappen

Sophia was a true warrior before and during her fight with Childhood Leukemia. Through her months and months of treatment, she declared each day "The Best Day Ever." What she went through to fight this evil disease is mind boggling. Kids should be enjoying life, not fighting for it. Sophia Kappen - a sweet angel taken too soon.

My Story

18 Sep 2023

Hi, friends. This September, I am riding in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer. Our goal is to pedal 175+ miles and raise $5,500.

Why are we doing this? Because cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States - 38 kids die every week.

Sophia Kappen was a bright, precocious, loving, funny and innocent 5-year-old when she was diagnosed with the 'easiest-to-cure' form of Leukemia. Cancer is EVIL, and way too soon, she was out of options.

Almost a year to the day after she was diagnosed, Sophia received her angel wings. I ride for Sophia and all the other children and families that suffer from this evil disease.

Please support my challenge to end childhood cancer and save little lives by making a donation through my fundraising page:

Thank you and God Bless!

I've known a couple families who've dealt with cancer in childhood, and even when the story has a better ending, it's never a happy story. I would love to see better treatments available for all children. I hope this little bit helps.”
