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.

International Day of Peace

On this International Day of Peace, if you sprinkle on a little kindness, you end up with the Kindness Bus accidentally parking in front of the Wyoming Health Council in Cheyenne, Wyoming…of course they invited us to their celebration.
