So proud to reveal our new logo for this segment of the ride!
It was designed by Lynn's sister, Laurie!
This design is so perfect since it is still
GO GOLD for CHILDHOOD CANCER month!
It is so appropriate because we will travel through the
Sun Belt of the US on this ride!
This segment of the ride will take us from Phoenix, AZ
to the New Orleans area, a distance of more than
1500 miles. It will take us more than three weeks
to do this ride, taking 12 days in Texas alone - everything
is big in Texas, including the state itself! This is
the most challenging ride that Glenn will
attempt with multiple century rides just to get from
place to place where any kind of accommodation is
available for us to sleep. Below is our tentative route.
Please let us know if you know anyone in any of these
towns! Always love to find friends on the road!

It is always important for us to keep the focus on why we do this year after year.
The I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation supports the development of, and raises public awareness about, cutting-edge, targeted therapies for childhood cancer, so that the treatment of childhood cancer will be gentler and more tolerable.
We want to challenge the public’s acceptance that treatment for childhood cancer requires painful and embarrassing side-effects and life-long health disabilities, isolation from friends and family, and short and long-term psychological devastation. By educating the public about scientific breakthroughs in genetic childhood cancer research that are within reach but seriously underfunded, we can quickly raise money to fund research grants and provide seed money to researchers for new studies.
By seeing how close we are to more humane treatment for childhood cancer, we know the public will demand better treatments, NOW.
One more child’s life that is lost to cancer is one too many!
Our nephew, Ian, is and always will be our inspiration for these rides!
More details soon!
