It's the last day of the Great Cycle Challenge and I have exceeded my riding goal as of this morning's ride. I am now at 650 miles ridden. I am still $950 short of where I would like to be on my donations. I know there are at least 95 people out there that want to support Children's Cancers Research. All we have to do is get them to this page. Please share this with as many people as possible and let's see where we end up at the end of the day!
Well we are two days away from the end of the 2023 Great Cycle Challenge. I have ridden 608 miles as of this evening and have 30 left to ride in the next 2 days. I will meet that goal. Unfortunately, I was a little overambitious with regard to my fundraising goal. We are now at 13, 517.04 and I had hoped to raise $30,000 There are some things that I probably should have done differently and I will know to do that next year. That being said, $13,000 is a good amount of money to raise. We were 14th nationally and 2nd in the State of Indiana. But here's the deal. Doesn't $15,000 sounds better than $13,517? Do you think it is possible to raise $1,483.00 in two days? I think we can do that, if we spread the word and encourage others to join the fight. What do you say? Are you up to the Challenge? I am going to keep riding until I not only reach my goal, but surpass it. Let's see if we can do the same in the donations category for all the kids that are still out there fighting. Tiime to keep kicking Cancer's butt!
Kick Cancer's Butt Day is just minutes away. The day we have been waiting for. And as a reminder of why we do this I have included a few photos. Three of them are of Lucas and Samuel being kids. They did not have that luxury last summer as they were both going through treatment. The next three are of Aubrey. She was a beautiful young lady who should have been heading back to school this month. No parent should ever have to go through what Aubrey's parents went through for those months and now beyond. No parent should have to say goodbye to their child at such a young age. The Great Cycle Challenge people says that kids should be living life, not fighting for it. So now it is time to go Kick Cancer's Butt, LET'S DO THIS!!!
It that time! Friday is the start of the Great Cycle Challenge. Time to start riding! But hold on to your money for now. September 13th is Kick Cancer's Butt day where all donations are matched by our corporate partners up to 3 million dollars. I will post updates of my riding progress and remind you of your time to donate as we get closer to September 13th.
