As many of you know, I am an occupational therapist and work in the school system supporting our children with limitations and/or disabilities. Many of these children face the additional challenge of an unstable and/or impoverished “home” environment that impacts how they see themselves, how others see and engage them, as well as their availability to learn and/or opportunities to do so. Most public schools are consistently under budget and struggle to meet the supply needs of all students within the school environment, never mind the financial restraints of supporting children’s needs in the “home” environment. I myself came from a lower-income background and know firsthand the impact and challenges it has on self-confidence, self-worth, as well as a sense of belonging amongst one’s peers.


As part of the celebrations of turning 50, I have set out to complete a list of “50 things” that I have not accomplished and/or experienced in my first 50 years. One of these goals is to play a meaningful part in a fundraiser for a worthy cause.


I have chosen the non-profit organization “Cradles to Crayons”. Their mission statement is to “provide children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school, and at play “.


 

I am reaching out to you in hopes that you will help me with supporting this cause. Please click on the donate button to make a one-time gift of any amount or pledge a donation for each mile I ride; I'm planning a 100 miles ride! And each one will help a child receive a critical essential to thrive. Help me make a big impact!


I plan to do an all-day cycling ride, aka, ride until I can’t ride anymore on Saturday, August 28th, or Sunday the 29th (rain day) starting at 7 am. You can watch me ride live on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005960654861.
