This is so cool I had to share. Well, maybe it's only cool to me, but I'm good with that.
I work in the television industry and met a guy in a meeting that mentioned that he was doing a charity ride. Of course, I had to find out more. He's part of Fireflies West
. They are riding from San Francisco to L.A. to raise money for leukemia research at City of Hope, or as my family calls it, Club Med. This is the cancer center that saved my life over the past year. I can not be more humbled that a group of people are coming together from all over the country to raise money for a bunch of people they've never met. It restores my hope in people!
They leave on the 13th and arrive in LA on the 19th with a big party down on LaCienega somewhere. I'm looking forward to following along on their journey. I wish I could ride with them. Maybe next year.
If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!
