Don't be scared, you can do this. Alot of this long distance riding is mental (not all but a lot). It looks like the longest day you have is 112 miles, yes that is a lot of miles, but don't think about it like that. I usually tell people to ride from SAG stop to SAG stop. Just think about it as a bunch of shorter rides strung together. Also you will probably be on the road about 7am or 8am at the latest and probably want to be in by 5pm to eat and rest up for the next day. so you have 9 or 10 hours to finish the days ride. That is 12-14 mph to finish the day at a very reasonable time. If you are able to ride faster without fatiguing that's fine but you don't have to, the goal is to finish. It helps to remember that it is not a race.
Training for the next couple months will help. One thing that you need to do is get your backside used to sitting on the bike for a long time several days in a row. This can be the worst part of a long tour so if you are comfortable it'll really help. Make sure you have several different styles of shorts. Then change them each day (I mean to a different style it goes without saying the shorts must be clean) Sometimes a seam (s) rub against your skin and chaffe and can cause sores. If you wear a pair of shorts with different seams they won't rub you in the same spots time after time.
You will do fine. It helps that you are doing this for a very worthwhile cause which will keep you focused.
My mantra: Exercise frequently! Eat reasonably!
