Greetings everyone and thanks for checking in
It’s been a quiet few weeks since my return from Florida and training continues to ramp up as we move forward in the riding season.
Thank you to the 43+ donors that supported the fund raising effort and everyone who supported us through their words and encouragement. A special thank you to many of you for supporting other riders and for putting your trust in us, which at the time, was a good faith effort in an attempt to assist others with reaching their individual and overall team goals. Unfortunately I don’t know the final outcome of the total fund raising but I do know the team was successful in funding the patient navigator position who will assist America’s warriors and heroes as they battle cancer. Thank you !!
We continue to believe there are organizations out there worthy of our collective support and efforts. Please continue to trust that we will continue to seek out and find those organizations which best support what we believe should be the #1 mission of those organizations and that is, and will always be, providing only the best in support to those impacted by cancer and who are willing to work to bring a diverse group of individuals to support that mission in a respectful, courteous, and safe manner for all participant’s.
For those that have been following along, May is National Bike month and I am using it as a tune up to the Great Cycling Challenge that begins in June and which helps to bring awareness to the Children’s Cancer Fight.
This year, Deb and I have opted out of our yearly tradition of participating in the 24hrs of Booty ride in Columbia MD benefiting many local and national organizations. This was the ride where we traditionally celebrated not only Deb’s personal victory, but in memory of all those who have fought or are now fighting. We will miss the camaraderie and the entire 24hours of Booty experience, but we will be looking at other options in the future to start a new and exciting tradition.
We hope to connect with some of my long time and even some of my new cycling friends as well as family and friends throughout the year in discussion about how best to help bring awareness and attention to the cancer fight. We still believe there is a way to support that fight while remaining passionate and respectful to each other’s vision and ideals.
Thanks everyone for checking in and please stay tuned for what promises to be an exciting rest of 2015.
– Steve & Deb
