THE STORY:

March 18, 2011 the world lost an amazing soul. A woman who dedicated her short time here on Earth to caring for others, always putting the wellbeing of her family, friends, patients and even strangers before herself. 

While raising five children, teaching Sunday School, being a Girl Scout Leader, a room helper at school, and more, this woman worked tirelessly as a nurse to help those with Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia. Vowing to never let a patient die alone, even if it meant staying late at work and being away from her loved ones. Leading ground breaking support groups to help not only those inflicted but their loved ones cope with the daily hardships of the disease. After nursing for almost 30 years she dedicated her "free" time to feeding the hungry and guaranteeing those less fortunate were treated with dignity. Managing a Community Dining Room and sharing her talent for cooking for all who came to the table. She would say "Everyone, no matter their status in life, deserves to feel love and be pampered once in a while". They were dining on her cuisine, as she treated them like royalty, allowing them to forget their circumstances just for that moment. The world was a better place with her in it. 

I was beyond blessed to call this woman my mother.  My Mom was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer on November 12, 2010 and peacefully passed in the arms of her children on March 18, 2011. 

I ride so no mother will ever have to say goodbye to her children again because of cancer. I ride so no children and grandchildren will have to say goodbye to their "Mima" because of cancer. I ride so good people, who have dedicated their lives to community service and caring for others never have to leave this world and their work because of cancer. 

I ride for my Mom, and YOUR mom, for YOUR dad, YOUR grandparents, YOUR children and YOUR friends. 

If the donations from my ride save just one life, give just one family more time, then it is worth the sweat and tears of the ride. That one person could have been my mother, who exponentially helped 1,000s of others in her lifetime. Imagine how many more she could have touched?

$100, $50, $20, even $5, it all helps. Lets give our children and our children's children a world without goodbyes due to cancer. We can beat this. 100% of you donation will go toward this cause. 

Thank you for reading this and please, be kind to each other. We're all in this crazy world together. 

Love,

Sarah
