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.

Bogart Phone Home

September 16th, 2016


This E.T. inspired photo I just could not resist. My cousin’s family outgrew the stuffed animals in this photograph, they donated them for me to hand out along my travels to children in need of comfort.
What a great way to spread kindness to others, especially to the youngest of society who have very little in their lives.

A Little Local Press

September 14th, 2016


I love getting press no matter the audience size or location of the article in the newspaper or on television. Sometimes a little local paper, because of it being a weekly, creates a lasting impression on the newsstand for all to see.
This great yard sign that I posed with once before, was picked up by a local newspaper. It was great press from the reaction I had from residents of this town.


Happy Birthday Bogart

What a wonderful learning environment Village Prep Cliffs campus is. Hundreds of students were treated to morning programs about kindness. They then came out to walk around the Kindness Bus to choose their favorite word or quote.
Thank you to Dean of Students, Jonathan Lubas for the invite to talk with the students at his school. It really was a special day.

Thank you to Ryan for coming out on his day off from school and helping to do some work on the house Bogart and I are working on. Ryan’s favorite quote on the bus is “be a hero to someone every day.”
