Cat's Ride for Life
$11,250 of $15,500 goal
About 9 months ago, I walked into Sun Cyclery bike shop using my walker and purchased a recumbent trike and it has changed my life. I've been able to regain my independence, confidence, and rebuild my body.
I have accepted the challenge of riding 5,200 miles across country (from WA to FL) with SpokesFightingStrokes.org. I want to show others that you can overcome obstacles one step at a time, or in my case, one pedal at a time. We'll be leaving on June 23rd, 2014 from Anacortes, WA so I need your help quickly! The ride will end in Key West FL 5 months later. I have never felt more passionate about doing something like this in my entire life!
Your generous donation will cover food, fuel, and costs associated with the trip (support van/camping fees/bike supplies).
Your support for me and the cause will be greatly appreciated. Help me be AMAZING and show the world that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

Now that I am home and have reached the end of the road but my journey has just begun. I find myself facing new challenges of organizing my space and daily tasks. I will continue to ride and teach others to ride. It is with deep gratitude that I say thank you.
I will continue to share my story and raising hope and awareness with riding, speaking engagements and a book in the near future. I look forward to sharing with you.
Some of you do not.
We have made it to Orlando!
We are super excited to visit the Catrike manufacturing plant tomorrow by invitation and have been invites to speak at a bike club Florida Freewheelers next year.
There are only a few more riding days left in this tour. It is a mixed emotion as I ride criss cross Florida to the gulf of Mexico and then finally down to the Keys
I can't believe we pedaled all that way. Now we turn left and head to Florida. 1 more month to go!

My family and I wish you and Dan the best of luck in all that you do! It was such a pleasure to meet the both of you, and in my kids words, you two are "AWESOME!" I posted the picture on facebook, along with everything I could to help promote your cause! Sorry, I could not find a facebook page for you or Dan, but I would love it if y'all could send me an invite so we could keep up with your accomplishments, which we are sure will be many!!
