Pedal the Cause Ride for a Child

First, thank you to everyone who has signed up for the Powered by Hope Pedal the Cause team! We’re at 160 team members, and my goal is to get to 200. If you have any friends or family members who are considering joining, please encourage them to join the Powered by Hope team – we have riders on the course, in the spin tents and virtual riders – all are welcome!

Once again this year we are supporting a Ride for a Child, and our child for this year is DJ. He’s such a sweet little guy and loves all things Spider Man. For those of you on our team, I encourage you to share a letter of encouragement, by email or written by hand. Our Ride for a Child is Sunday, Sept. 14 at 11a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dwight Davis Tennis Center in Forest Park. Please email me if you are planning to attend by Aug. 30. Let’s get a huge participation!

I’m always inspired to see youth who participate in races, and thrilled to share that we have a youth participant on our team, Makenna. She was recently highlighted in the Pedal the Cause newsletter, and you can read her full story on her fundraising page here.

Hope to see you tomorrow for the Edward Jones training ride and lunch. Check in begins at 7 a.m. at the Edward Jones south campus in Des Peres. You can register for it on Facebook, here.
