THE STORY:

My name is Jaron Sherwood. I am 14 years old and have just recently joined Team Will and am looking forward to Go The Distance 2016. When I heard about this event, I was very intrigued. I have recently taken up cycling so hearing about being able to ride across the country and really do something incredible drew me in instantly. Team Will is a cycling team dedicated to raising funds and awareness for children with cancer. Go the Distance is an annual event Team Will puts on where the team rides from the Pacific to the Atlantic stopping at children’s hospitals to deliver over 10,000 cards; bringing hope and joy into desperate situations. Having disabilities myself and having several siblings with different disabilities, has placed children with special needs on my heart. I know several children with different types of cancer. When I was in fourth grade, my Taekwondo studio hosted a in-studio tournament to raise money for a young boy named Freddy who had leukemia. I was very moved emotionally when I saw his picture and heard about what he had to endure to try to keep his life. The black belts in the academy formed the team Bald for Freddy.  My uncle joined the team and that really inspired me. I signed up immediately and that weekend I went bald for Freddy. It was a challenge because at the time I was already being bullied, but I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from being a light and hope for Freddy. The tournament passed and we raised a lot of money to fund Freddy’s treatments. When I met Freddy after the tournament I was deeply moved emotionally and spiritually. I hope to become humbled by meeting children like me in very life threatening situations.  Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”  I pray that this summer that I will find myself while serving others. 

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.
