Just getting started!
July 25, 2016
Fight Back Festival, featuring the Not Dead Yet bike ride, is the Cancer Community Center’s annual family fundraiser held at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine. For 2016, our goal is to raise $135,000 in donations and registrations for Fight Back Festival – that’s 20% of the annual budget!
I can't remember how many of these rides I've participated in (because I'm getting old and losing my memory!) but I am so grateful to be able to do it again. This year, it happens the weekend after my son, Kevin, marries his wonderful fiance, Bridget. And we're all very much aware how fortunate we are to have Kevin's father, Steve, still with us after his diagnosis of brain cancer 20 years ago.
The hills don't get any flatter, let me tell you, but I figure my purpose in this ride -- aside from raising money -- is to give the other riders someone to pass!
If I could get all my friends and family to contribute $5, I'd be so far over my goal, it would be like coming in first in the ride!! Wouldn't THAT be something?!
