I can't afford the few days to do the ride. I do sponsor a team every your and they raise a lot of money. Raising money is about networking. The best one I know, she does about $30,000 for 2 events herself. Everyone gets documents for tax records, email, reminders, has a simple party before and after. It's an art, but a great way to help people.

I ride in our local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation ride. A colleague's son, Nathan, has CF. Two years ago was the first CFF Cycle for Life event in this area. Team Nathan was just me. Last year, we had five riders. I'm hoping we double our ranks this year.

I'd love to ride in the Tour de Cure (both my grandmothers had and my father has Type 2 diabetes), but I am a lousy fundraiser.

I think its great that we can use our physical gifts (and everyday I thank God for a healthy body!) to help others. Our CFF ride has a ride who has CF - something that would have been inconceivable a decade ago.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

On March 4, 2009 I went into the woods to look for an individual who had just assaulted his wife. I lost my footing and ended up hitting my left knee on some branches covering the ground. My leg went instantly numb and was visibly distorted I learned later that I had broken my tibia. I was back to full duty almost a year later thanks to the doctors, physical therapist and my strong determination achieved from my time in the Marine Corps. In 2011 I began implementing cycling into my exercise program and I fell in love with it again. Iím using my bike to build a better me through charity rides and living a healthy life style.

I believe that everything happens for a reason so I took my new found love for cycling and using it towards raising money for charities. I plan on doing two charities rides this year the Police Unity Tour (May) and MS 150 (June). With both rides I will be traveling 400 miles over five days and I canít wait. I achieved my fundraising goals for the Police Unity Tour so now I have to start on working on my fundraising goals for the MS 150. You can help support research to help end Multiple Sclerosis as little as $20. That $20 can go along way so donate to this great cause.
