Why I ride
I ride to get kids like Kelsey (pictured) a chance at a real life. 19 years ago, Kelsey and her Mother were just getting out of Children's from a bone marrow transplant. We decided a way to give back was to ride in the Courage Classic. Pat, her Mother, and I are still riding today...19 years later (should be 20 this year...thanks COVID?!). Kelsey would also join us, however, she is now giving back in her own way. After treatment, and YEARS of check-ups etc., she is now a Child Life Specialist working to make kids feel as comfortable as possible when going through unimaginable appointments.
These kids deserve a chance to give back. Most likely, they have been touched by their experience, and end up giving back in such an amazing way. It is these kids now, that will hopefully some day save their own kids from having to go through this. THIS...This is why I ride! To give those kids a chance!
I have raised almost $12,000.00 in the 19 years I have ridden. I would love to get that number OVER 15K...Help me reach that goal! I will keep riding most likely until I do...so really...please help me get there sooner?!
