Why I ride
I ride in honor of Jared Lujan, the ultimate Google Eyed Warrior who fought a three year battle with cancer that ended on April 4, 2006. To honor his life, courageous battle and the hospital that made such a difference during this battle, we setup Jared’s Google Eyed Warrior Team fifteen years ago to ride in the Children’s Hospital Courage Classic. For more information about Jared and his battle, check out his memorial website at http://jaredlujan.memory-of.com/.
Please donate to honor the hospital that helps kids like Jared battle cancer!
I can't believe it has been 15 years since Jared lost his battle with cancer. Each day I miss him and wonder how tall he would be or which college he would be attending or would he be working in his first real job? Then, I think how much cancer sucks and what it takes from this world!
It makes me motivated to raise as much money as I can to help stop child-hood cancer! All my donations will go to the Colorado Children's Hospital Cancer Center who researches how to stop child-hood cancer as well as treats and supports families battling cancer!
My team goal is $15,000 (personal goal $3000) but I hope by sharing Jared's story with everyone who will listen I can crush my goal. Because 1 in 285 children in the US will be diagnosed with cancer by time they turn 20, I know that many of us have personal stories about a child we know who battled or is currently battling this disease.
So for me, I am motivated by the thought of other children struggling with this disease or moms who may have the chance to spend a life time or even one more day with their child with cancer!
So, will you help me meet my goal by making a tax-free donation to my Courage Classic ride in July? You can also forward this informaiton to all of your contacts and ask them to help!
Before Jared passed, he made me promise to "live, love and never give up"! Let's all live up to this promise and help others live through their battle with cancer, feel loved from those they may not know but are helping them, and give them hope to never give up their dream to be cancer-free!
Please consider joining my team or sponsoring my ride by donating to my ride.
