My Story

31 Jan 2022

I started using my bike to fundraise in 2008. I knew nothing about cancer, but followed Lance in the Tour and had heard of LiveSTRONG. I went to my first Challenge event in Portland. I had no idea there could be this much pain, suffering, hope, and heroism out side a war or natural disaster. I have been fundraising ever since.

I have been lucky. Cancer has so far not touched my life in any meaningful way. My wife, Jeri, had cancer, but she was in and out of it all before we met. Sure, every-time some kind of physical ailment happens the first thought is cancer, but so far that has only been worry. Even though LiveSTRONG’s mission changed I have continued to be drawn to cancer fighting organizations. I ride and raise money because other cannot.

When I did my first Great Cycle Challenge in 2019, it was very similar to 2008. Sure, I now knew something about cancer, but I joined because kept seeing this event on Facebook, it was in July, and I thought this would be a good way to see if I can ride 1,000 miles in a month. It had nothing to do with fighting child hood cancer. I did not even know what the event was all about until I had signed up.

So, I am not a normal fundraiser. I am drawn by the passion of the team helping all these kids. I am amazed that such a small organization can raise so much in such a short amount of time. I love the way the entire fundraising event is done in a month. And while I am not a “gamer” it is so cool how this organization has gamified the fundraising process. AND along the way everything that we do goes to eradicate childhood cancer.

In 2022 my goals are:

* 30 Sponsors (30 days in September)

* 470 miles (47 kids a day get cancer)

* Climb 17,293’ (average number of kids getting cancer in the USA per year)

* Raise $22,000 (It is 2022!)

If you read this far, I sure hope you will consider contributing to my effort. My wife and I will match any amount!

SHINE!

    “Whoever you are thank you very much! My biking so far this year is going really well. While I have not started yet, my fundraising gimic this year is a jersey ride of choice. For anyone who donates $100 or more can choose one of the jerseys I currently have. For $1,000 or more I will buy a jersey of their choice and ride with that. Since you are well over $100, I would love to do a dedication ride for you. If you email me, I will keep your name completely confidential. SHINE! (jeff@theroadrider.net)”
