FAMILIES AND FRIENDS RACING TO FIND A CURE.

Black Friday Ride
Goal Increased Due to Overwhelming Support!
Dear Friends & Family,

It is with great pride and a sense of accomplishment that I write this letter to tell you about my “Black Friday Ride.”

In preparation, I rode over 283 miles over a 10 week period to train. The outpouring of support was so great over that period that I raised my fundraising goal from $10,000 to $23,000 which I am happy to say I exceeded.

During the actual ride, as I approached mile 25 I felt really strong. I passed 26.2 miles in 2 hours and 46 minutes. I felt so good, I just kept pedaling. It was as if God was helping me along the way. When it was over I had ridden a full marathon (26.2 miles), a half marathon (13.1 miles) and a little extra to round things off at 40 miles which I completed in 4 hours and 26 minutes…NON-STOP!

It felt so good to contribute on my own to help the A-T Children’s Project. I want to thank everyone for your support, donations, kind words and prayers. It truly lifted me up. “Maybe” I will think about doing this again next year.

Many thanks to everyone.
Jeff

WHAT IS A-T?

Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
