PLEASE HELP ME TO SUPPORT WOUNDED VETS & 1ST RESPONDERS!
2018 LAS VEGAS HONOR RIDE, VETERANS DAY, NOVEMBER 10... Last year with the help of my awesome family and friends, we raised over $500 to support Veterans. This money is crucial in helping wounded veterans with expensive "Adaptive Bikes", Riding Gear, Entry Fees, etc., that allows these heroes to participate in events like this throughout the year.
Last year was my first ride in this event and it was an experience of a lifetime! To ride bicycles down the middle of Las Vegas Blvd led by Metro Police Escort was amazing! Then the "Silent Mile" ride past the Route 91 Festival site and right turn at Mandalay Bay only a few weeks after the shooting was a deeply spiritual and humbling experience.
The last Honor ride I did the 20 mile course, but this year I am signed up for the 40 mile course. I figure since I'm asking all of you to step up your generosity, I had to step up my own game.
Wont you please donate to this very worhtwhile cause?
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
A special thank you to my Knights of Colombus Christ The King Council #14144 for sponsoring my participation in this event. They will also be serving the first Rest Stop of the event course in the parking lot at Christ The King church at Torrey pines and Tropicana.
My Personal Web Log
I am so blown-away by the outstanding response from all you excellent friends and family! I set the first fundraising goal to $500 and y'all blasted right past that mark in no time! As your wonderful gifts came in, I raised the bar THREE TIMES to keep up with you fantastic guys-n-gals and together we have currently raised $770! Now with only a few days to go for the event, I have the goal now set at $800, and I am optimistic that we will hit that mark with ease.
A special thanks to World Famous, Hot Rod builder, Gordon Tronson, as well as the Knights of Columbus Fr John Kenny 4th Degree Assembly for their generous gifts. All of you deserve the greatest praise.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
OOORAH... LET'S DO THIS!!!
