Wheels of Justice Cycling
Our team has now raised more than $2.1 million for Children's Hospital Colorado since our start in 2005... In 2013, our sponsors and 271 cyclists raised $375,000+ for the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. In 2014, please join us in the fight against childhood cancer.
Hey Team, congrats on a fantastic Tour. I feel so proud and lucky to be associated with such a fantastic human beings! Plus, you have pulled together as a team and moved us back into the Top Spot amongst the teams at the Courage Classic. Our good-natured and inspiring rivals, the cystic fibrosis-inspired Pink Lightning team, trails us by about $9000.
Let’s make this a horserace until the final day – Aug 31 – by continuing to send emails to our contacts and by forging new fundraising paths: how about a backyard BBQ in which you ask your guests to contribute $20 to your ride to Children’s Hospital? Have you posted about your ride on Facebook and provided a link to your rider page? Have you reached out to your service providers – barber/stylist, accountant, lawyer, banker, printer, etc – and asked if they’ll support you? Do you have a high school or college reunion coming up this year? How about emailing old friends from your reuniting class to let them know about the amazing ride you just did and the role your team is playing in he fight against childhood cancer? You really will never know what will happen, until you ask them!
And, if you can, please convey the special and personal inspiration you received during this tour: Maybe it was from kids like our teammates Eli Gold and Jessa Salvador who’ve emerged from successful cancer battles to come back and ride the mountains and fundraise to help other families facing the same challenges. Or maybe you were inspired at our team party by the brave Wheels of Justice families who shared their stories of losing a child to cancer – and then courageously coming back to ride and fundraise – just so fewer families will have to experience the same tragedy.
Inspiration and courage was all around us last weekend. Please do your best to convey that feeling in your fundraising emails, and I know we’ll make an even bigger difference in the lives of the kids, families, docs and nurses at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
And finally this week, I wanted to share a great YouTube video produced by our teammates Terrie Catlow and Jose DiPaolo – click here and enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bZ9KlIHhuM
BUT MOST OF ALL – KEEP GOING UNTIL AUGUST 31!

In 2014, we have now passed the $2.2 million mark!
