THE STORY:

I was inspired two years ago when I met a group of Intel employees who were all embarking on the Team Will journey for 2010. I trained with them as they prepared for their cross-country trek and was so impressed these people with families and full-time jobs could have the time and energy to devote to the cause of childhood cancer. I remember attending the send-off festival at the Capitol and hearing the speeches given by everyone, including Will's father. It still makes me tear up. I enjoyed reading the stories of the heroes and hearing them talk about the heroes they had chosen.    After following the cyclists on their journey I wanted to have the opportunity to ride my own bicycle across the country while promoting childhood awareness. I was so honored to be asked to be newsletter editor, and of course I accepted. I have enjoyed collaborating with Ken, John, and everyone else in getting out a regular newsletter to the Team Will community and am looking forward to the 2012 ride!  Heroes i'll be riding for this year are Maddie Huebner, Tanya Strong and Delainey Zuniga.

“Go the Distance 2012” is set for June 24 - July 3, 2012. This time riding from San Francisco, CA to Boston, MA, in 10 days, Team Will plans to cross 14 states, visit 18 hospitals and participate in 7 community rallies with a goal of raising $125,000 for family support services and childhood cancer research.  For more information, please visit:  www.team-will.org
