Help Hannah Be Her Best!

Hannah's childhood could be considered anything but normal.  In spite of her excellent care, she suffered from a rare and severe metabolic defect that required the intervention of a gastrostomy tube when she was only six years old. There were days where she slept twenty hours a day and when she was nine, one of her specialists signed her up for a Make A Wish trip.  Her prognosis was not great. Most every single one of her organ's had an abnormal finding.

Miraculously, with the help of some amazing specialists and by the shear grace of God, we made some changes that seemed to help her. Over the next few years, Hannah slowly began trying to find her stride in life.   Initially, she had no hobbies, no friends, and no interests. She tried a few things but, wasn't overly successful.  Her life changed completely when she got on a bike. To say she is doing well is almost an understatement. Her passion for life is exciting to watch! We want to help Hannah achieve the goals that she has set for herself. 

Hannah's immediate goals are to race in the upcoming State Championship Women's Road Race, Tour of Kansas City, US Cycling Amateur Road Nationals for Crit, TT and Road Racing, in Louisville Kentucky,  Hill Climb Championship in Colorado Springs, and she also wants to learn to track race in a velodrome. If she can learn to race track it will help her with every area of her racing. Most great racers have track backgrounds.  We have connections in Colorado and are hoping to eventually race at Nationals in Los Angeles (if humanly possible, this year). The amount we are raising is a very conservative amount for the cost and the amount of travel. There are quite a few races we have not even listed. Last year, we put over 30K miles one one vehicle alone. Hannah does not have any financial backers to make this possible and we need help to make this happen. 

Please feel free to share, no amount is too small . (...Even a dollar or two pays for some gas on the road).  If you can't give, please pray that God provides what we need to help Hannah achieve her goals.
