Tour de Cure is a monster fundraiser
over $14,000 to the cause plus thousands of dollars worth of prizes to auction and raise funds.
I couldn’t be more proud of my friends and our amazing community.
Everyone really stepped up to the plate on this one and got right behind us and I can’t thank them enough.
Along the way, many people pulled up in cars offering donations and words of support.
One particular morning, an older lady pulled up alongside us at a rest stop, handed over $10, expressed her gratitude and told us she was currently going through chemotherapy.
I rode with tears behind my sunglasses for quite a while that morning.
With one in two people affected by this aggressive disease, next time you’re about to abuse a cyclist for holding you up on the road, keep in mind, they may be riding for you one day.
