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.

Giving While in Need

July 22nd, 2017

7-21

On a fast track for the next five days, we just arrived in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. We are meeting all kinds of people who are so grateful to be able to connect with us. Connie, who has cerebral palsy, still has enough energy and such a big heart that she helps to feed the homeless every day no matter what time of year. Today she was passing out string cheese to anyone who looked hungry or asked her for a piece.  Her friend Deb is an angel in her life. #DownSyndrome #Autism #ADNPKids #Bipolar #Aspergers #Cerebralpalsy #Addictions #Depression #Bullying #ADHD #Bostonterrier #Kindness #RingOurCountryWithKindness #OneMillionActsOfKindness

José Javier is on the autism spectrum. His family is originally from Quito, Ecuador. They have lived in Naperville, Illinois and are heading to Kansas. The primary concern of the parents is always how good the schools are in the new district. #DownSyndrome #Autism #ADNPKids #Bipolar #Aspergers #Cerebralpalsy #Addictions #Depression #Bullying #ADHD #Bostonterrier #Kindness #RingOurCountryWithKindness #OneMillionActsOfKindness
