I have decided to ride 500 miles to raise awareness for children’s cancer research and to raise $500 as well. The money raised has already exceeded $500, so I’ve changed it to $1000. That was the easy part. I don’t usually ride beyond 50 miles in a week, so averaging 125 miles for the four weeks in June is going to be a push, but I said I would ride to bring awareness about children’s cancer, so I’m going to give it my best shot. You may visit https://greatcyclechallenge.com/Riders/BenjaminGriffes to read my profile and donate if you wish. Or join up and ride, too. I am riding for Grayson Miller, a 7 year old with leukemia, and for two great men who succumbed to cancer in the past 3 years – Steve Schoenbaum and Eric Webster.
My challenge to you today is whether you are comfortable where you’re at now, and is there anything – a goal, a cause, a challenge that would push you and take you out of your comfort zone? Find something bigger than yourself; look for the needs within your community and ask if there is something you could do to help make things better; and what about you and the way you take care of yourself and others? Can you do better? Today is the day, this is the place and you’re the one.
