Heroes of a different sort
On June 2, 2008, about 50 cyclists will start off in Vancouver on a 19-day, cross-Canada bicycling trip. The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride is to raise money and awareness for kids battling cancer, and every one of these riders, along with the countless others who will join them for local rides, deserve whatever help and support you can give. Whether it’s just moral support - cheering them on as they pass through your town - or making a significant contribution to this very worthy cause, your help is needed and will be appreciated by all, especially the kids.
The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride website also has links to a number of the rider’s blogs so you can follow progress as they train and prepare for what will be quite a gruelling but ultimately very rewarding experience. And once the tour begins, regular updates will be posted on the group’s progress. With two friends among the national riders, you can be sure I will be following closely indeed.
Check them out, and please help if you can.
