For the second consecutive year, I plan to ride in the Boys & Girls Club Cycling Challenge, on September 16th. Last year was phenomenal. Many of you pitched in to contribute a total of $1,100, which covered a Boys & Girls Club membership fee ($40+/-) for an additional 27 children that otherwise would not have had the chance to attend. That's outstanding and I hope we can reach even further this year.
Here's a link to the 2018 Impact Report - http://bgclubcva.org/2018-impact-report/
Much more than a biking challenge, the ride exists to benefit all of the six Boys & Girls clubs in the area - 3,031 children served. Although the Club's reach and impact is apparent and impressive, there are an additional 3,215 deserving children living in poverty that the Club isn't able to accommodate due to budgeting constraints. Everything we raise between now and September 16th puts one of the 6,246 impoverished children of central Virginia in a better position to succeed by providing additional opportunities for them to attend the Club.
If you would like to join me in the ride of September 16th, it's casual and a great time, plus the support we raise helps real people and changes real lives. If you don't want to ride, but would like contribute, your generosity is very much welcomed and encouraged. Thank you for your consideration and ongoing support!

All the best,
