I'm Going to America's Hat

Northward Bound

A couple years ago a friend of mine said they could tell it was a new year because they started getting emails from me asking them to sponsor me in my fundraising.  Well, last year, as you may recall, I did not hit people up for fundraising.  Instead, I asked them to join me on riding a century and that I would sponsor them.  Pretty magnanimous of me, I must say.  A few hardy souls took me up on the offer and they will tell you I made good on my promise.

Of course, that was last year.  This year is another story.

You see, there are more challenges out there to be met.  And I've found a new one.  Now before you get ahead of yourself, yes, I will be raising money to fight Leukemia and Lymphoma and I challenge you to help me.  I'll come back to that, but first let me tell you what I'm planning to do.

Instead of doing a run-of-the-mill 100-mile ride, I have signed up to do a 198 mile ride from Seattle to Vancouver Canada.  Yep, we're taking our show on the road and we're going to cross into the Great White North.  On August 15th we will start our two-day trek to the land of maple syrup and cheap prescription drugs.   I say "we" because I will be doing this ride with the fine folks from Team in Training.

Now this is an ease-you-into the journey letter.  I have plenty more to say and you can bet I will get around to saying it. I'll give you the details of the ride and, oh yes, some cool incentives, but I'll be persistent in one message - please help end blood cancers.  It can only come through research, hard work and strong wills.  More of that will come in future posts

So it starts today, please do us all a favor and consider donating to my cause.    You can donate here

Thank you for your support and please follow along for the next few months.
