Disclaimer: I am participating in the Great Cycle Challenge 2019 to raise awareness and support for Children’s Cancer research.
A couple of updates on my Great Cycle Challenge 2019 – Great Cycle Challenge June 2019. First, my bike was out of action for several days due to the chain breaking. A big shout-out to my friend, Jim, who repaired the chain.
Next, on Wednesday, June 12, 2019, they are matching donations, up to $900,000 (total for the donations for the day) so if you haven’t sponsored anyone, doing so on Wednesday will double your impact if your donation hits before they reach $900,000 for the day. That includes donations made by riders to their own rides. Plus, any match money for Wednesday counts towards the $500 donation to receive the free 2019 jersey.
I have some very exciting news…
This Wednesday is Kick Cancer’s Butt Day!
We’re asking ALL riders to join together this Wednesday, June 12 and take action to give cancer the butt-kicking it deserves. Why? Because over 15,700 American children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and of those, 38 children die every week. That’s 38 too many!
Cancer has been hurting our kids and their families for too long. It’s time to kick it where it hurts – in the butt!
But that’s not all…
On Kick Cancer’s Butt Day, a group of wonderful supporters have created a special fund to boost your donations. So that means on Wednesday, for every donation you receive, the fund will meet your total for the day (up to $900,000 across the event) and we’ll add that total to your personal tally on your fundraising page.
That means ANY online donation YOU receive on Kick Cancer’s Butt Day (this Wednesday) will be MATCHED and added to your online fundraising page. Wow. 😲
You can even donate to yourself.
PLUS, the matching donations WILL count toward meeting the $500 target to receive a 2019 GCC jersey, so you only need to raise HALF the amount on Wednesday and you could earn your FREE jersey!
How good is that? It’s awesome.
We had matched donations last year also for Kick Cancer’s Butt Day, but word is spreading about Great Cycle Challenge and even more supporters have asked to get involved this year. So the amount we can match is much bigger…it’s very exciting.
Whether you’re cycling the streets in San Francisco, hitting a spin class in Savannah or pedaling in Pensacola, we need every rider across the United States taking action on Wednesday – together!
And I’ll make things easy for you to get involved…
On Wednesday morning, I’ll send you an email that will include 2 simple steps for you to take action on Kick Cancer’s Butt Day to start your fundraising to fight kids’ cancer. It will only take a few minutes.
And I’ll also help you get prepped before the big day to ensure you can make your personal impact to help these kids.
I hope you can join us on Kick Cancer’s Butt Day this Wednesday to give cancer the butt-kicking it deserves. It’s going to be awesome!
Get ready, because cancer’s going down.
Have a great weekend.
P.S. Paul, Kick Cancer’s Butt Day is this Wednesday (June 12) and ANY donation will be matched up to $900,000 – let’s take action together to show cancer who’s boss!

For my personal challenge goal, I will hit 1/3 of the way towards my 120 mile goal later this evening – June 10, 2019. The goal is for me to do more riding, which will include taking longer rides to places I generally take the shortest routes to get there, to make up for the lost rides when my bike was down.
