It's that time of year again! Our third year participating in a cycling tour to benefit Bert's Big Adventure!
9/12/2108 UPDATE; Due to flooding from the hurricane & storms on the east coast, the Adventure Cycling Organization C&O/GAP cycling tour has been cancelled. While Kevin's challenge to ride cannot be achieved this year, we have decided that the fundraiser must still go on!
Bert's Big Adventure families can't just "cancel" their challenges, so we're going to shoot to meet our goal of $12,500! If you've gotten this far, you're interested too, and we appreciate you and your support!! Thank you so much!
Every day you hear stories about children being diagnosed with chronic or terminal illnesses…the circles around us seem to be getting smaller every day. As you can imagine, this breaks apart a flood of emotions and the families face unimaginable challenges. Their lives change in ways that many of us will never experience, much less understand. Their opportunities to have happier moments during these times are difficult to achieve – their visits to hospitals, doctors and therapies seem like a never-ending “cycle”. Bert’s Big Adventure focuses on breaking this “cycle” by providing fun, magical moments for the families in the organization throughout the year!
We're continuing with our "BBA Super Powers" name, but it will only be one "Powers" riding this year. Kevin will begin his 350 mile cycling journey on Sunday, September 16 on the C&O Canal Towpath in Washington DC and will finish on the Great Allegheny Passage on Saturday, September 22 in Pittsburgh, PA and I will accompanying him in a support role.
350 miles, 2,500+ ft of elevation through 4 states in 7 days - pedaling through scenic passages and along historic paths for one purpose - To raise funds for Bert's Big Adventure...
Please check out the video to help you envision the impact that your donation will make on the lives of these children and their families. Join us will you?
Thanks in advance for supporting us whether it's moral support or financial support!
Kevin and Cindy Powers
