Girl Trip Time is Fast Approaching
July 25, 2017
BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2017
In 2005, when Laurie was first diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer, she decided she needed a "Girl Trip" to keep her mind occupied while she endured chemotherapy. In spite of loosing her hair on that first ride to Crater Lake, she recognized that motorcycling was one of the few activities that kept her focused on fun, not on the cancer. For the next 10 years, she managed to put together a girl trip on motorcycles throughout the Northwest USA. Destinations included Hells Canyon, Vancouver Island, Whistler, Glacier National Park, Olympic National Seashore, Redwood Highway in northern California, just to mention a few. In 2016, on her last trip, she had to travel in a camper van to Osoyoos.
The rules for this fundraiser are few and simple.
1. Find at least one girl-buddie and ride at least one motorcycle during the first half of August. Ideally, the girl-buddie will be a driver of a motorcycle and not a pillion. (Male pillions are OK.) Spend at least 2 nights, one of which must be camping. Travel at least 200 miles (more is better). Go fast, but don't get caught speeding. Trailering the motorcycles is not allowed.
2. Have fun and eat well.
3. Donate generously to the American Cancer Society, a cause that Laurie fully supported. (Actually, you don't have to participate in #1 and #2 in order to do #3.)
All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
