24 Hours of Biking for the MACC Fund (They fight childhood cancer)
Hello Friends, Colleauges, and General Bike Enthusiasts or non-Enthusiasts, who like good causes -
This year, on Aug. 21st and 22nd, I will be riding in the 31th Annual Trek 100. In previous year's I've done the 19, 36, 65, and 100 mile distances. However, this year is a bit different. Due to the global situation that I'm sure I don't need to explain, the regular format for the Trek 100 (a massive number of people riding together and supporting a good cause) has changed. This year the event is a ride from home event where you just go ride your bike and raise money.
A number of others and I have decided to add a mountain bike component to the event this year and do our ride from home on some sweet single track. We are calling this the 24 Hours of Funk. Why you may ask?
- Trail Distance: Funk (~1.3 miles)
- Time: 24 hours (6pm Aug. 21st - 6pm Aug. 22nd)
- Goal: At least 38.5 (50 miles)
- The Team: Party Zoo
Our goal is to be the team that collectively raises the most money for the MACC fund.
(Note: You are able to donate any amount you would like and it does not need to be on a per mile basis.)
Please check out my donation page before Aug. 21st if you are willing and able to help us out with this goal.
...Now where did I leave my bike. Thankfully, Jesse
MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes gainst Childhood Cancer)
The MACC Fund has contributed over $65 million to pediatric cancer research sine 1976 and has played an important role in raising the overall cure rate for childhood cancer from 20% to 80% in that time. Yet, even children in the 80% category can still relapse and have ‘late effect’ issues which requires additional research.
