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.

I try to do my best every 56 days to make it a point of giving blood to a local blood drive of a town that I am in. There is always a need for your blood everywhere across the nation. You may save a life by donating and it usually only takes a half hour or so. I encourage everyone to try to do this on a regular basis.

I couldn’t resist taking a picture of these bronze statues of children. The innocence of children is remarkable. Children should be protected at all costs. It is our duty as adults to make sure that this is the case…always.

Today was our annual visit to the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples. It is always such a nice invitation and a great way to connect with many of the students we have visited in their schools these past few weeks. Thank you to everyone who made this visit possible. Many of the employees, administrators and board members came out during the course of the day to talk with us. The Bogart books were a very big hit. I even brought the puppetshow out and set it up next to the bus, there was very great interest from children and parents alike.

Naples Alternative School

Oftentimes, the students who need a message of kindness in their lives, appreciate it the most.
Today’s visit to the Naples Alternative school afforded me the opportunity to speak with students who have had some struggles in their lives. All of the students are looking for a little kindness in their lives, someone who will listen to them, someone to trust them and someone to tell them how moving forward with their lives with kindness is going to be so incredible.
Many of these students either shook my hand or thanked me for my inspirational talks. I loved talking to these students!
