BE BOLD, GO GOLD

Hi everyone and thank you for checking in….

There is still a lot of great riding left in the year and I am already planning some rides in 2016 to support the Kick Cancer to the Kurb Tour. I am already registered for the Hampton Roads Tour De Cure in April and I look forward to riding with the United in Grace Team to (1) support the diabetes cause and (2) to help bring awareness to the Cancer Fight. Both Diabetes and Cancer causes are near and dear to my heart and the Tour De Cure helps in both those fights.

We continue to work with a local cancer awareness organization to help bring cancer awareness to the children’s cancer fight. We have an event on the 29th and we are looking forward to once again getting out in the community and sharing our story and why we so committed to this specific cause. Rumor has it we will have some Storm Troopers and Princesses on station so if you are in the area please consider dropping by the BE BOLD GO GOLD EXTRAVAGANZA in Hayes, VA on the 29th.

This weekend is the 24hrs of Booty in Columbia Maryland. I want to thank my friends and readers that are volunteering at the event and those that are riding. It’s a great event and one in which I hope to return to someday. Please remember, it’s about the cause and the positive impact we can all make in the cancer fight by getting involved and EVERYONES STORY.

 As we continue to prep for our upcoming event to kick off September as Childhood Awareness Month, I can’t encourage you enough to help us help the kids. Any donations to United in GRACE are tax deductible but even more important is the fact that the money raised will go directly to help bring cancer awareness and in time fund a clinical cancer trial at Sloan Kettering Memorial. I can promise you that the members of United in GRACE are committed to the fight and your donations will go as indicated. While we are only now beginning this journey we are confident the journey is worthy of our effort and we appreciate everyone’s support.

New Team Same Mission….

Greetings everyone and thanks for checking in…

It’s been an extremely busy few weeks and training continues for some upcoming challenges and events.   We are excited about the opportunity to bring individuals together in the fight for our respective causes. Just to clarify, we are not fund raising for ourselves. We believe that by building a community of fighters and supporters we can best serve the causes we have chosen to fight for.  Whether you cycle, run, walk or ? , C4ACause is dedicated to building a community in the fight against Cancer as well as helping in the training for events to fight against MS and Diabetes.

For those that have been following along, I am working with an organization, United In GRACE, which is a local organization helping to bring Childhood Cancer awareness and funding for childhood cancer.  United in GRACE’s goal is help fund clinical trials and other childhood cancer research.  In addition United in Grace has selected Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as our primary recipient.

  • Childhood cancer gets 3% of federal funding, the least of all cancers.  The NCI’s federal budget was $4.6 billion.

Please consider any size donation to the United in GRACE fund raising campaign by following this link. If unable to donate at this time please help share the fund raising page and our mission that kids shouldn’t have to fight alone.

Thanks everyone for checking in…
