I have had the honor and privilege of participating in four previous Go the Distance events. On each GTD trip, I was exposed to the never ending need for family support of those children fighting cancer. The GTD opportunity provides me a means to raise advocacy and financial support for these children and their courageous stories. The desire to make a 'real' difference seems overwhelming at times; but having experienced how a simple smile to being able to lighten a financial burden can bring hope, compels be to keep trying. I look forward to meeting many amazing kids and if this GTD16 trip is anything like the previous ones, I will end up being the one blessed.
Team Will's cornerstone event “Go the Distance 2016” is set for June 22 - July 2, 2016. We will be riding from San Francisco, CA to Margate City, NJ in 11 days while crossing 14 states, visiting 18 hospitals and participating in 7 community rallies with a goal of raising $125,000 for family support services and childhood cancer research.
