Hey People Who Read My Blog!
I have not announced here that I am doing the Great Cycle Challenge 2020. But I am. I have been raising donations for the past month.
I guess I should tell you what the purpose of the Great Cycle Challenge is first. I copied an excerpt from their webpage, which is where people can donate.
“I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer! Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.
Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.”

I will do 400 miles in the month of September. I am trying to raise $2050 and I am more than half way there. Please consider donating or reposting my challenge.
Why am I doing it? I have lost dear friend, Terry Mahon, last year and quite a few relatives including my grandmother and mother to cancer. Also, I have a heart for children in pain. I cannot bear it.
As my friend Kelly as says, “#doepicshit! Let’s fight together!
