Update #1
21 days ago

I have been preparing for this ride for the past four months - up to about 150 miles a week. The effort has been good for mybody, mind and soul. Now, with just two weeks left, I am focusing on being prepared - do I have all of the right equipment, the proper stretching routine before, during and after the ride, and am I ready to represent all of you who have kindly donated to this combined effort? If you have not made a contribution to eradicate polio, please join me. If you have donated, thank you entrusting me, and Rotary, to do our part.

Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
For over 30 years, Rotary International and our membersthroughout the world have raised awareness, money, and dedicated countless hours to eradicate polio from this world. From over 350,000 cases when we started in 1985 to only two so far this year. While we are close to global eradication, the hardest part is ahead - three years of no cases of the wild polio virus. We need focus and funds to complete this effort. I am going to ride 100 miles in the El Tour de Tucson and I invite you to join me by making a contribution to this effort. Any amount will do, but perhaps a $1.00, $2.00 or $10.00 per mile will help me and polio get across that finish line. Thank you for your support.
