Tiffany is Pedaling for the Kids!!!
Bryan and I are excited to participate in the all new Courage!!
This year the cause has been opened up to help more children than ever before. Yes, we are a bit intimidated by the challenge but we are so very excited about the even greater blessing that this year's Courage can bring by saving, changing and improving the lives of children in our communities.
We have chosen to ride the 175 mile course called The Sasquatch. It is a loop from Centrailia to Pack Forest and back over two days with 100 miles of riding on the first day and turning around to pedal another 75 miles the second day. We will be challenged not only with the daily distance, but also as pedal through the beautiful Cascade mountains near Mt. Rainier. The best part of this ride though is the cause and we'd love your help.
Together, we get to help more children than ever. Children who have chronic illnesses and need special treatment. Children who have been abused or have cleft palates and need multiple surgeries and therapy. Children who need immunizations or whose parents need to learn the skills to be good parents and keep their children safe. Children who have cancer or a mental illness that has escalated, have rare and complex illnesses, have the need for specialized therapy, have parents who can't afford to pay what insurance doesn't cover for their treatments or hospital stay.
Together, we will help children like my niece, who 2 months shy of her 2nd birthday, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. This year my ride is more personal than ever - this year I ride for her, and all the children like her who need our help.
