"FUN"raiser Send-off Party Success!

Tonight's "Fun"raiser at Sweet Tomatoes was a great success.
I don't know exact guest numbers or the amount raised but it 
was a wonderful evening filled with our special family, great 
friends and a terrific I Care I Cure Club from Dunwoody High School!  
Thanks to all who came and to those who sent their good wishes!

It is hard to believe that the time has come to
pack up and head out to Phoenix.  The year of planning
has flown by and we are almost ready to hit the road.
The bike is being packed as I write this!

The next blog post will be on Sunday night, 
October 30.  This will be a challenging ride with long days
for Glenn on the bike, desolate landscape, spotty
cell service, limited gas stations, "interesting" places 
to stay and lots of time to think!  I hope to
find things to entertain you each night in the blog.
You can be sure we'll have trivia and stats!
Thanks for your support and for coming along
on this journey with us!

Enjoy these photos of tonight's festivities!

As always, Ian is our inspiration for this journey.  If you believe that
children should have more humane and gentler treatments for 
cancer, donating here can send the word and the $$$ to researchers
who are working on targeted therapies for childhood cancer.

Logo by Laurie!

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

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!

"Gearing" Up for Another Ride!

Uncle Glenn is "gearing" up for his next challenging solo bicycle ride to benefit I Care I Cure.  The ride will begin on October 30, 2016 departing from Phoenix, Arizona.  He will pedal through southern Arizona and New Mexico, ride many days through the very large state of Texas with the final destination being New Orleans!!  This is the longest trip that Uncle Glenn and Aunt Lynn have undertaken since beginning these fundraising rides in 2009.  It is 1500+ miles in about three weeks.   We'll be posting the specific stops very soon and hope to find that some of our supporters will be along the route or would like to hop on a bike to join Glenn!

Feel free to pass this blog site onto to anyone who is a cycling enthusiast,  friends who have had a personal experience with childhood cancer or anyone who might be impressed to see a 66 year old man accomplish this feat!   

Our direct fundraising page is set up and ready to go.  If you make a donation via your phone, be aware that there is a security code that must be entered at the bottom of the page.  
Please let us know if you have any problems at all! 

As always, we thank you so very much for your support and love!
