Father's Day weekend offers two things:
1) The US Open golf PGA tournament at Pebble Beach for 2019
2) The Trek Across Maine - 180 miles of bike riding
I choose option #2 this year:
2019 is my 10th Trek after starting these rides in 1992 with "NAYBAH" Chuck Sprague. This year will introduce a new 180-mile route and I'm thrilled to be riding with Team Kennebunk Savings! We have a hearty bunch of employees that have braved the rain & wind in past years ~ this year is forecast to be hot & sunny all 3 days!
I ride for my family friends and neighbors that have been affected by lung disease! My father passed away almost 15 years ago with emphysema and my grandfather was a cigar and pipe smoker all his life. I have other family members affected by COPD not to mention a bigger problem- today's youths are tempted by a whole new wave of smoking options with "vaping"- many are more potent and more harmful! The Trek Across Maine raises funds and awareness to help fight disease and find ways to help!
Help me reach my fundraising goal of $4,100 and I will help remember your loved ones! I will carry the names of your loved ones on my bike- you share their name and message with me and I'll create a banner board on my bike~ I appreciate any donation you can make!
