I'm Riding For

Janice Knepp

Janice Knepp

At 11/2 years old my niece was diagnosed with Leukemia. Thankfully she beat it and is now a healthy 31 year old woman. She has gotten a college degree. She has her own apartment and works with young children. She competed in the triathlon and medaled in the 2022 Special Olympics National meet. I am immensely proud of her!!

My Story

28 Aug 2023

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.

Joan
