I get it. Not everyone is crazy enough to ride a bicycle 300 miles in 3 days. Not everyone has the time to train. Not everyone has the interest. But once I say yes, I never back down. So I’m ALL in. Why am I doing this? To raise money for Make-A-Wish and help grant wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. It reminds me that I’m able… healthy… alive. Will you help me raise money? Here are the top five reasons you should say yes:

It feels good. When you give, you experience a certain high that you don’t get from alcohol or drugs. Studies show that people who give will activate pleasure centers in their brain. You’ll feel better.

You get a tax write off. Would you rather give your money to Uncle Sam or to an adorable child fighting off a deadly disease who just wants to feel good for even one day.

Giving makes you feel alive. It’s the best way to jumpstart your day. Donate, give, serve, help. It energizes you. Try it. The fact that I’m giving, gives me energy to ride 300 miles.

It’s almost like cycling 300 miles. Ok, maybe that’s a stretch. But if you don’t have time, energy or interest in cycling, at least you can click this link and help get me to the finish line. You can still help create some amazing moments for children and their families. It feels good. Try it.
