Ballerina on Wheels!

1033952_27113143588649So remember last week when I said I’d make a big announcement?

And then, remember how I said I was working on meeting deadlines?

Oops.

Anyway, here’s what the big hubbub is all about:

This July, I’m riding my bicycle 200 miles in 2 days in the Ride for AIDS Chicago! I’ll be slipping back into those beloved padded shorts and houghing it up to Lake Geneva and back in 2 days, and serving a great cause in the mean time.

I admit that bike commuting and I haven’t been the best of friends lately.  And this I intend to change.  That plus a couple hard core spin classes a week.

Here’s the thing… I can take care of the peddling part, but I need your help, too.  As part of my committment I’ve pledged to raise $1000 for TPAN, the organization sponsoring The Ride.  This is where you come in.  Perhaps you or someone you know has been affected by HIV/AIDS, or perhaps you recognize the great need for increased advocacy efforts.  Or maybe you are encouraged by a group of individuals killing themselves on bicycles for a great cause.  Whatever your rationale, your contribution of any dollar amount will not go unnoticed.

If 180 people donate $5, I will surpass my goal.

Plus, I’ll throw in a postcard from Lake Geneva.

So if I’ve convinced you to give the cost of your daily latte to a great cause, just visit this here little link:

I look forward to keeping the lovely readers updated throughout the journey of training and riding in this experience of a lifetime!
