EVENT DATE: Jun 26, 2015
I will be cycling from Astoria, OR to Atlantic City starting June 26 and will be on the road for about 50 day. I will be carrying my tent, sleeping bag, clothing, food, and everything that I will need for my travels. I will have no support or car to help carry gear. I have done some touring before this, but nothing to this extent! I believe that both personal, mental and physical challenges will be met. But with determination, focus, and calmness, they can and will be overcome.
The money that I raise will go directly to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, in Rochester, NY. The Ronald McDonald House helps support families of sick children that are admitted into local hospitals. There are 2 "homes" in the Rochester area. There is the "House within the Hospital" for the most critical patients families. rhe Westmoreland House is a short distance from the University of Rochester Strong Memorial Hospital. This "home away from home" has 20 bedrooms that provide a warm, supportive, friendly environment for all families. In addition to their bedrooms, there are laundry facilities, a state of the art kitchen, as well as complimentary transportation to and from the hospital. This organization relies on donations to run and continue to support the families it serves. Please consider even a small donation to this wonderful organization.
