Surround yourself with good people and good things happen. And that I have. Not only am I lucky enough to be running the New York Marathon with three awesome ladies, I am also surrounded by an amazing group of friends and a wonderful community.
Last Saturday I was lucky enough to be surrounded by good people. My first Slow Ride of 2017 went great thanks to my awesome friends and our wonderful community.
When I first started doing Slow Ride, I did it for fun. I did it for the community. Out of it, we have helped raise thousands of dollars for fundraisers including the Roc Solid Foundation and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
I can't thank all the local businesses enough. But I really appreciate all the donations, time, and gifts you all donated to our raffles and event.
We were lucky enough to raise over $2,000 for our Cancer Better Run. Which put us over the $11,000 as a group and also let our leader, Karen, hit her personal mark of $3,500.
Being able to combine a Slow Ride and raise funds for a good cause can't get any better.
So again. Thank you to everyone who attended, donated, and helped in every fashion!
