An 8 year ride for kids

Put an end to Bullying & Adolescent Suicide

In year 3 of this mission, I introduced a bicycle ride to my travels to raise
awareness about issues kids are having to deal with at far too young an age.
Bullying and Adolescent Suicide are two of these challenging burdens most kids
will unfairly have to overcome throughout the remainder of their lives. At rides
end we will have ridden enough miles to traveled the perimeter of the earth, twice.
My mission on this ride has but one focus: To save kids lives.

Little Rock Arkansas

September 16th, 2017

9-16

Little Rock, Arkansas is such a friendly town. I met two individuals within the first 15 minutes of arriving, Becky has a cousin with Down syndrome and Leroy has a son with autism. They both had very kind words for the Ring Our Country with Kindness tour. As a parent, it is a lifelong dedication to raising a child with special needs.

During my visit to Oklahoma City I stopped by the memorial to pay my respects. 22 years ago this tragedy shook our nation with the death of 168 individuals including 19 children. It was a very powerful visit, especially seeing the 168 empty chairs where the building once stood.

It’s so great to see familiar faces along my travels, especially when those faces are those of family members. Visiting Cave Creek, Arizona I was able to do a bit of connecting with residents and visitors of this town while connecting with family. Thank you to the entire Blake family for the warm hospitality.

Addiction

September 10th, 2017

9-10

George who is a third generation metal fabrication shop owner in Scottsdale, shared his daughters heroin addiction stories with me. Years of helping to do anything he could to help put an end to it.  He said “whatever you can do to stop people from using, do!” He loved the Kindness Bicycle’s directness.
