I was going to wait until July to make the announcement, but the cat has been out of the bag for a while via the Shout Box and conversations I've had with many of you...
I am racing the Tour Divide in 2011
. I plan to make the mass start in June 10, 2011 in Banff. www.tourdivide.org
This announcement has a primary goal - not to pat myself on the back for a long bike ride - but to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. I have set a goal to raise $5,000 dollars by August of 2011 for Komen for the Cure. http://ww5.komen.org/
Please take a moment to visit the fund raising page I have set up and .... I started a blog there .... http://www.info-komen.org/goto/robridesforpink
Check out both the "Miles for Pink" page and my personal page - donations can be made from either one. I will update the blog on the personal page with my progress and adventures leading up to the race.
SHARE THIS WITH AS MANY AS YOU CAN! I really want to make this effort make a differance to those diagnosed with the desease. $5,000 will go toward research, mammagrams for those without insurance, and to help pay for treatement to those that can't afford it.
These are our mothers, sisters, friends and wives. Help me help them.
Your support is appreciated!
