BENEFITING: HERS Breast Cancer Foundation
I always wanted to do something very adventurous in life and now I believe is the best time to take on such a journey. I feel that when you are not challenging yourself every so often you aren't living. What makes me happy is the joy of accomplishment. Every dollar raised for HERS BREAST CANCER will be much appreciated.
Its been a dream of mine and Jesse Frechione to ride our bicycles south from Anchorage,Alaska to South America in hopes of raising money for a special charity and challenging ourselves both physically and mentally. The charity that we are raising for is the HERS BREAST CANCER foundation. This charity is very close to me because my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer just last year and underwent chemotherapy and all the other rigourous treatments along with it. This is a very grueling process these women must go through emotionally and physically; the mission of the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation is to support all women healing from breast cancer by providing post-surgical products and services regardless of financial status to restore dignity and beauty in the lives of breast cancer survivors.
Now, when it comes to riding, Jesse and I have probably raked up less then 1000 miles combined on a bike in our entire lifespan, so this will prove to be quite the adventure and challenge for the both of us, but we are determined and passionate about raising money for HERS BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION through each mile we travel. Any donation would be amazing. You can donate a certain amount for every mile we travel or every 50, 100, 1000 etc.
