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.

A Splash of Color

There was an immediate impact of the new sign on the rear of the Kindness Bicycle, it sums up what the Ring Our Country with Kindness ride is all about. I couldn’t be any happier to know the impact this ride is going to have. It’s amazing what a little splash of color will do.

Thank You Consulate Health Care

Consulate Health Care employees across the nation celebrated One Million Acts of Kindness during February 13-19th. Specifically, the goal of this campaign is to inspire people to achieve one million acts of kindness in their lifetime. We received stories from our employees at Edgewood Manor of Lucasville II who were caught doing something “just because”, and other staff members from Country Meadow who sent cards to their sister facilities, Whispering Hills and Crestline Nursing Center. Employees at Emerald Ridge held a week long array of activities ranging from a food drive, to baked goods and helping a charity. Staff at Oak Grove came up with “The Escalation Hug Week” to hug one patient and tell them why they’re special. By the end of the week, employees were telling seven people a day why they’re special! We want to give a big shoutout to the following care centers for their participation and stories:
Newport News
Oak Grove
Consulate Health Care of Norfolk
Consulate Health Care of Williamsburg
Country Meadow
Emerald Ridge
Consulate Health Care of Chattanooga
