I have been biking regularly for the last few years with a couple friends. On November 20, we'll be riding 80 (or maybe 109!) miles in El Tour de Tucson, the largest ride in Arizona with about 9,000 riders.
I've chosen the option to 'Ride for a Child' and raise funds for Tu Nidito. Each year this agency helps more than 800 children who are grieving a death in the family, who have been diagnosed with a life threatening illness, or who have a parent diagnosed with cancer. I am paired with, Ben, who lost his older sister, and I'm really looking forward to doing this ride in his honor.
My goal is to raise $500 before the ride, and I am looking for sponsors to join me by making a contribution in my name. You can see a picture of Ben, read more of his story, and donate online at my personalized rider web page. (You can also donate by check if you prefer that method.) All donations to Tu Nidito are tax-deductible, and 91% of every dollar goes directly to support programs for children.
