Riding to Save Lives



November 12th, 2008



Ten days and counting ...



A big thanks goes out to everyone who has supported me in every way possible, donations moral support and prayers. I could not come as far as I have if were not for you. On November 22nd I will be peddling my heart out. As I do I will be reminding myself why I began this journey... to raise money to help save lives. But, more than anything I have a renewed strength and belief in myself. During the past 6 months I have had to overcome many obstacles and endure a few sacrifices. I can't wait to cross the finish line with my Team in Training family with me as well and wonderful husband and beautiful girls waiting for me at the finish line.



Take a look at my blog to see updates. www.mypurpledragonfly.blogspot.com



While I have never done any specific fundraising other than donating personally, I have to say that the generosity you have shown is incredible. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Because of your generous donations the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society will be able to continue helping patients and families around the world.



Fighting cancer is a passion of mine. I have watched many people fight the disease including mom, 3 aunts and my cousin. Only one of my aunts has conquered and beaten it. After this event is over, I plan on continuing to help support the “Stand up for Cancer” mission.



I will be riding in honor of many people. Those who have donated $100 or more, the name of your loved one will be going on the ride with me. Right now I have lots of ribbons that will be attached to my jersey. It is not too late to donate. Please consider making a donation to this wonderful cause. I would love to have more ribbons to wear. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions
