Why I’m participating in the 2017 Great Cycle Challenge

All and sundry and in between,

I know many of you are wondering why I’m participating in this particular fundraiser. Once upon a time, I was a sick kid. No, not cancer, my issues were (and still are) neurological and orthopedic. But I remember all too well what it’s like to be one of those kids in the hospital. It was lonely. It was frightening. It hurt. Yet my experiences weren’t nearly as bad as it is for kids with cancer. These kids are facing down not only their pain and fears, but their very mortality EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. 

Cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the U.S.; 38 kids die from cancer every week. 

Because every kid deserves a childhood, because every kid deserves to be healthy, my overweight, gimpy, arthritic, Guillain-Barre, spinal-stroked, middle-aged arse will be on the bike to help raise money for children’s cancer research.

Also, please be patient with my posts for the next month. I’ll frequently be sharing and cross-posting across all of my social media accounts.
