Event History: 2009 Tour For Kids
Being a member of the 2010 Sears National Kids Cancer Ride is a privilege for me and I am proud to be a part of this remarkable cause.
I picked up cycling a couple of years ago in an effort to stay in some sort of shape while maintaining the ability to stay close to home and spend as much time as possible with my family during weekends.
Cycle fever slowly began to grow on me and weekend rides became longer and eventually leaked into the weekday…oops!
What is your connection to the cause?
My connection to this cause is children.
I have been blessed with having many children in and around my life and nothing is more motivating than trying to bring a smile to the face of a sad or troubled kid.
Why you are doing this ride?
In support of children and their families affected by cancer. And by doing so, I hope to make a difference in the quality of their lives
My son is a happy healthy young boy and I want him to appreciate how lucky he is and never take life for granted. Too much Cancer has been in our families but we need to keep fighting it.
What excites you most about doing this ride?
The positive impact the ride will generate for kids and their families, and the future hope that it will give them. It’s all about the kids! Seeing the country by bike will be a close second!
