What a great day!

Tuesday 29th

I really enjoyed yesterday's ride and the number of last minute donations that came thourgh! I was able to meet my goal and this moring I heard from a friend that her corporation is going to match her donation! A good day all around!!!!

Impromptu

Monday 28th

As I was driving through town, I found this grop having coffee near the university. It was great fun riding with the Wolfpack Motorcyle Association for a couple of hours!

On the way

Monday 28th

Just started in Raleigh. More as I go along!

By dribs and drabs, but they are still coming in.

Wednesday 23rd

I check multiple times a day. I am rarely disappointed. There may be only one, and sometimes there are not any, but they do keep coming. It truly is impossible to express my gratitude. In this difficult time, ten, twenty, fifty, or more dollars are donated. Most of the time there is a small note that lets me see what they were thinking as they donated. They are wonderful and I am lucky to know so many good-hearted people.

 

Thank you, thank you, and thank you!!!!

I probably made some people a little crazy this week.

Thursday 17th

I messaged everyone on my LinkedIn network, some who I have not connected with in a while, Facebook, and Instagram asking for donations. I am so incredibly grateful for the response I have received. I also recognize that my request may have offended some people – I find this social media doohickey to be a little difficult to navigate – and I am deeply sorry for that.

In these times it probably seems a little silly. People getting dressed up and riding their motorcycles around town to “raise awareness” for prostate cancer and men’s suicide. Cancer stalks my family. I have lost my mother, father, two sisters, and a sister-in-law to cancer. I lost my brother who was in remission to the effects of the “cure.” I have yet another brother that is in end stage prostate cancer and a brother-in-law in remission. I lost a nephew to suicide and based on social media posts and conversations, the Marines I know all seem to die from cancer or suicide.

The end result seems to be that a few dollars here and a few dollars there (the lord knows I would love to break in to a corporate sponsor somehow) will add up with those donations from around the globe and maybe this little bit, garnered from people dressing up and riding their motorcycles through town, will move the needle a little.

Thank you

I'm Riding Solo for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Friday 31st

On Sunday the 27th of September, I'm riding solo in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.

Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I'm asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
