This is an announcement so that all of the Meetup members are aware of this drive, although the Ride to Patapsco is meant partially as an opportunity to rack up Miles for Jamie as a group. If you sign up, then you can help add miles to her ride.
Jamie Roberts was killed in a road accident while trying to raise money for cancer research in the 4K for Cancer ride, with over 3,000 miles left to go. Her friends are trying to get us to all work together and rack up the miles for her.
From the FB page announcement. "
As we all know Jamie was the most dedicated, outgoing, and passionate person! She embarked on such an amazing journey biking across the country for cancer. In her honor, I want to help her finish the remainder of the miles of her journey. She had about 3,685 miles remaining. Let's use this group to post our own rides.
Post your miles and use the hashtag #milesforjamie. Let's get our Jamie to the finish line!" https://www.facebook.com/groups/744851622245768/
