The Ride, Conquered

Another Ride to Conquer Cancer, conquered. Proper summary (including pictures) to follow…but for now, some raw data for you:

  • # of riders: 2,280
  • total raised: $8.6-million

WOW!

As for me, I went into the Ride with the same two goals as last time: 1, to finish; and 2, to not ever walk the course. In addition, I made a third goal: to not stop except at designated pit stops. I didn’t think I’d be able to manage that one–but I did, in spite of the rolling terrain, a ferocious headwind on both days, and pouring rain yesterday morning. My mental stamina (or stubbornness) is the biggest source of personal pride I’ll take from this year’s Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Our final fundraising tally: $2,915. I’m in awe of each and every one of you. Thanks for your support; we’ll have to do it again sometime.
