It's that time of year again, Clean Air Challenge!!!!
I am participating in this event again this year for the 7th time. The first time I ever participated in this bike ride it was for my mom's 50th birthday, I was 25. She kicked my butt! That was 2003. Then in 2014, my mom passed away from Metastatic Breast Cancer. My siblings and I decided to form a Team "Team Renate" to honor her. This was one of her favorite events, it reminded her of when she did a bike trip across Germany with her brother and it was for a great cause. She always made her best effort to be the top fundraiser, she won a bike one year (which each one of us daughters has rode in the event since her death). Now I don't just ride to honor my mom but my son has asthma. His asthma is very well controlled but there have been a few scary times. He is an athlete and loves hockey and wrestling, he needs to breathe clean air to keep his lungs healthy for those sports. He rode in this event last year and wants to ride again as well. I haven't decided how many miles I am going to do yet this year.....might just ride with my kids again or I might go for the 100. We will see!
Please consider helping me support this great cause!!! Thank you in advance and if you feel like doing a bike ride, join our team!!!
