Please pledge me for the 2022 Trek Across Maine. 2022 will mark my 16th consecutive year participating in the Trek!!!! I ride the Trek Across Maine for a number of reasons each year.
The first reason is because the money raised during the event goes towards a good cause. The Trek Across Maine is one of the largest fundraising events ALA puts on in the entire country and I am proud to be a part of it. Money raised during the event goes towards things like cleaning the air and helping people with breathing problems.
The second reason I participate in the Trek Across Maine each year is simply for the enjoyment of riding. Every year I look forward to the 3 day event because during that time, nothing else matters. There is something to be said about spending 3 days doing nothing but riding your bike with good company. I receive a strong sense of accomplishment each year when I cross the finish line after riding 180 miles!
Lastly I do the Trek Across Maine each year because it's good for my health. Cycling is a healthy sport to get into and training for the Trek (and other rides) keeps me physically fit and healthy. It's a win win situation! I was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and have now been in remission for over 9 years! I am happy to report that I was able to beat cancer and still ride in the trek without missing a year. Please pledge me for the 2022 Trek Across Maine. Those of you who are repeat donors, I'm sure you will be hearing from me if you haven't already!
