Monday morning muses - July 28, 2008 - Helping out

Dear Readers,

Please indulge as I go a little off tech topics today...

I’m joining the Pan Ohio Hope Ride to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, help cancer patients and their families, and to empower communities.
Will you support me in my ride? I’ll do the pedaling. All you have to do is make a donation.

I’ll be cycling 300 miles from the Society’s Hope Lodge in Cleveland to the one in Cincinnati from August 7-10, 2008. These beautiful facilities provide free, supportive lodging to of cancer patients and caregivers who have to travel for treatment. They have helped more than 15,000 cancer patients and caregivers avoid millions in hotel bills and travel expenses.

This will be a challenging trip. Please help me make the road smoother for those battling cancer by supporting the Pan Ohio Hope Ride.

In case you're interested Neal Roberts (who's in charge of the ride) tells me that for the Pan Ohio Hope Ride
  • it's not to late to also register to ride. You may not want to/be able to ride the 4 days, but there are 2 day and even 1 day options!
  • He is very actively in need of volunteers to help during each stage. Two big needs are for SAG support (they bring their car and a bike rack to transport riders who have bonked), and for water stop volunteers (just chill out at a table and provide drinks/nutrition to riders). There are other things to do as well, so anyone who can volunteer should contact Neal directly and he’ll hook them up.
Neal can be reached at or 614-985-6399

Thanks again for your consideration

Peace Out,

P.S. Here's maps of the route
