SPIN ODYSSEY is just about six weeks away. On March 6th I'll be spending six hours on a spin bike to raise money for the American Cancer Society. I'm excited!
See this post for more information about last year.
I participated in this event last year and was BLOWN away. This year I'm on the planning committee and also heading up a team (Go CyclePaths!). Plus I'm hosting a benefit in a few weeks.
Part of this event involves (obviously) fundraising, which I find is always the hardest part. There are about a million causes out there that want your money. Everyone's priorities vary, so while one person deems a cause worthy, another may not.
Breast cancer hits super close to home for me. My mother is a survivor! We were very lucky that for her it was caught early on and was treatable. She's doing wonderfully today and as a result I want to try to give back and find a finite cure for this disease.
If you can find a spare dollar to donate to me, I'd be over the moon! There's zero pressure but I figured it couldn't hurt to throw it out there.
And if you happen to be local and want to participate or volunteer, leave me a comment.
