    I endedup with 101 in 5 hours and 22 minutes. I had a 21 mile per hour avg until I hit the wind. End up with a 19 mph avg. Wind was not as bad as the chill. I didn't see anyone out there.

    Did 52.75 - glad we decided not to do the full 62 - wind had to be brutal out west in the wide open areas!

    Here is what a donation to this event will provide:

    * $30 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
    * $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
    * $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
    * $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

    I've done this twice before and there is a lot of joy in knowing you are helping someone who may be too ill to do this themselves. Thanks for listening to me.

  • Donna N.

    Thank you Pam! So true! :-)

    Not sure what time we will be there, but planning on the 62 miles. Money goes towards a very good charity so I encourage everyone to try to ake at least a small donation.
