    This September, Blood and Sweat for more Years is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Our team name has special meaning. Our riders are literally donating their BLOOD and pouring out their SWEAT (and hearts) as they pedal hundreds of miles in the Great Cycle Challenge. Why, because they hope to add YEARS to the lives of kids in a battle with cancer.

    Let's talk about BLOOD. Kids with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy have a huge need for blood, platelets and plasma. As the chemo and cancer plays havoc with their own bodies to produce what they need. Did you know that donated platelets, which are critical for blood clotting, only have a shelf life of 5 to 7 days. Their is a constant demand for platelets, and a no less important need for whole blood and plasma. So, our team riders each pledge to make one donation during the Great Cycle Challenge.

    Now the SWEAT. The team's riders are working hard and pedaling far more than is comfortable. They are sweating as a sign of their commitment, in the hope it will motivate you to make a financial donation to support this cause. Afterall, the Great Cycle Challenge was created to raise funds to support the research needed to find better treatments for pediatric cancer.

    And most importantly, for more YEARS. The whole purpose of this event is to find ways to help kids with cancer extend their lives, and hopeful have the full and rich ones that we as riders have had the good fortune to live ourselves. With your support, that can be possible! So, please consider making a financial donation, a donation of life giving blood, or joining our team and riding with us.
