Hello Everyone! Yes I am riding my bike again! I am still in Physical Therapy from a traumatic Brain injury that I unfortunately got while riding in the Trek Across Maine, but am recovering and will be ready for another season of bike riding and supporting some wonderful organizations while training to ride my bike in October of 2016 from Maine to Orlando, Florida. I put in for the Tri for the Cure this year which is a raffle spot for an all women's tri and got in. Amanda Campbell will be swimming on my team and we have another friend who will be running (or Amanda again)..But we are excited to be participating for the Maine Cancer Foundation and all the people we know who have battled, are battling or have conquered this disease. I will again ride for the American Lung Association in the "Trek Across Maine" and the American Diabetes Association, "Tour de Cure" in June.

Calder's Clam Shack will be donating 25 cents of each ice cream cone sold on Sundays this summer to one or the other organization, depending on which one will be coming up following that weekend. Please come and help support the rides.

Below are the links to my fundraising pages for each of the events. Please donate to your chosen organization and help support wonderful organizations who are trying to stamp out diseases we all know so well. If you chose not to donate on line and would rather send a check, please send it to me at 108 North Rd, Chebeague 04017 and make those checks out to the appropriate organization. Thank you so much for all your support !
