This will be my 5th year to ride the Tour du Rouge for the American Red Cross! I am inspired by the dedication of the Red Cross in performing the many missions that they undertake. My goal this year is to bring a few more people with me to share in this amazing experience!
Normally at this point I would extoll the virtues of riding my bike. It has been a great stress reliever and helped me to loose over 50 pounds, but life and work happens and I am starting my weight loss journey again.
Now about the Red Cross, who gives me the opportunity to have a unique experience every year, while I help others.
Your donation not only benefits me for my ride but here is the Red Cross uses your donation for:
They provide food, shelter, comfort and hope in times of crisis, such as a fire, flood, tornado or hurricane.
They provide lifesaving training such as CPR, First Aid, as well a swimming lessons in some areas.
They are there for the members of the Armed Forces and thier families, helping them to remain strong through emergency communications support, pre-deployment briefings and assistance for those who are required to return home in the cases of personal crisis.
They do a lot things for many different people. Please join me in support of this wonderful organization.
