Thank You!

From the bottom of my heart to the top of Mt. Diablo - A HUGE THANK YOU!

or at least the junction!

On Friday, May 25 - 9 days before ride out - I met and exceeded my goal of raising $3000 to participate in ALC11.  I have been overwhelmed with the amount of support I have received throughout my training for ALC - both emotionally and financially.  Within minutes of sending out my email in January asking for support I have continued to receive a steady stream of encouraging messages and generous donations.  

Every time I got an email with the subject "a donation has been made on your behalf" tears literally welled up in my eyes.  To each and everyone of you - THANK YOU!!  No amount was too small and everything was greatly appreciated.  I am truly honored to have such wonderful, supportive family and friends in my life.  I am blown away by your generosity and "thank you" just doesn't seem to be enough.

With each and every mile I rode to train for ALC I thought of you.  When the weather got hot, the legs got tired and the hills got steep I reminded myself of your encouraging words and all the support and people I knew who were cheering me on. 

While your generosity has allowed me the opportunity to ride 545 miles, the real people you are helping are those affected with HIV/AIDS get the help they need to live longer, healthier lives.

I am so excited to hit the road in 6 days and what the week will bring.  I couldn't have done it without each and everyone of you who helped me along the way.  Your support means more to me than I can express.

(I will be doing daily "photo posts from the road" from my ipad everyday so you can follow me from San Francisco to LA and see the wonderful work you are supporting!)

Pin It!
