September 16, 2019

I am writing to thank each of you for your support of sarcoma research at the University of Iowa. My campaign has now ended, but your support can continue. Gifts to sarcoma research can be made at any time via check or phone call to the University of Iowa Center for Advancement. Checks should be made out to the UI Center for Advancement (reference sarcoma research in the memo line), and mail your check to the UI Center for Advancement at 1 West Park Road, Iowa City, IA 52242. Gifts can be made over the phone by contacting Theresa Jubert at (319) 467-3659.

 

Thank you for joining me on this journey! Your support has been greatly appreciated.

A New Challenge

August 20, 2019

Thank you for your support as I ride across Iowa to raise awareness and money for sarcoma research at the University of Iowa.

I have achieved the miles goal, am a little short on the fundraising dollars goal, but the story of self-improvement continues - I just completed the annual sarcoma Courage Ride - a ride celebrating the courage of a sarcoma patient Seth Bailey - with my personal best timing of 6:07 hours (16.6mph average speed/3678 ft climb)!

 

I’ve set a new goal for myself. In the next 5 days, I hope to raise $1,000. Can you help me? Please share my campaign link with your networks, asking your friends and family to support this cause. Together, with your help, I think I can raise an additional $1,000 in just 5 days. Here is the link the share: https://goldrush.uiowa.edu/sarcoma.

 

Thank you for your support!

948 miles/31k ft climb/73 hrs on the saddle/24 days Thank you for your words of encouragement and contributions, happy to report that I am ahead of my goal for 30-days. 

30,000ft, 870miles, 20days, 1 goal - Erase Sarcoma NOW!

July 26, 2019

Thanks for your generous contributions and support, I'm well ahead of the target I set out for myself. Riding across Iowa, listening to stories of how cancer has affected families from all walks of life has often left me speechless. Yet, this has also been a journey of exploring that indomitable spirit, of fighting the pain and taking in stride whatever life throws at us.
