    Mission Accomplished

    Today I finally fulfilled my promise to ride a mile for every dollar contributed on my behalf to the Relay For Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. I originally set my goal in February at $1000 and 1000 miles with the plan to ride the 1000 miles by the end of April when the local relay event was held. I did ride 1000 miles plus before the event, but because of my generous supporters, the donations soared to $2081.
    So I kept logging miles and today I finally hit 2082 miles since February. The riding itself was a pleasure and I am happy I was able to help raise the money for a good cause. But I am so glad that I can now stop counting my miles as that just goes against my grain. But I'm sure I'll do it again next year. The cause is worth the sacrifice.
    A big thanks to those of you who donated to the cause.

    Great Job! Congratulations!
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Can think of easier ways to get the milage up- but for such a cause it was worth it---Well done.

    Thanks. As a survivor myself, I know just how important a cause this is.
