Every Day I’m Cyclin’ | Bike for Tikes 2015

Bike for Tikes 2015

Wow…. This weekend was amazing. Not only did I bike 180 miles (from Cincinnati to Bowling Green) and raise $1,024.80, but all of the bikers combined raised more than $100,000 and Dance Marathon raised a total of $341,749.34 for the kids at Mercy Children’s Hospital! Despite the pain in my knees, the sun poisoning on my hands, and the gusting winds that I rode head-on into, I knew it was nothing compared to the pain that the children in the hospital experience every day. With the motivation of the miracle families, my sisters, the men of TKE, family, and friends (new and old) I was able to keep going and never give up. I also raised my goal of $1,000, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without the help of the amazing people that donated to my donor drive. I am so thankful for everyone that donated and made this weekend so amazing. The 20th anniversary of Dance Marathon at BGSU couldn’t have been better!

Robbie is one of the miracle children who had cancer in his knee. He did the whole ride with us!
