Hey everyone!

Hope this finds each and every one of you healthy and well!

I'm a wish granter for Make-A-Wish Foundation and assist in the granting of wishes for children with life threatening illness'. For over 20 years, Make-A-Wish does a 300 mile bike ride called the, "WAM 300" to raise monies for Make-A-Wish children.

They are in need of volunteers for the 22nd WAM ride this July 23-26.

Here is a link:

If you would like to ride in the event, GREAT! I too will be trekking along the 300 miles no matter the weather for these kids!

If you cannot participate or volunteer, but would like to donate you can send me a PM or click the link I included at the end of this.

Cheers!
Stacie B./Lovemud

WOW! It has to be really cool for him and yourself, to watch this event grow to what it has become.

How is your training going?

good luck its almost time! wish you luck .

I was going to be the most prepared I've ever been this year, until a while back I tore my ACL.

I'll still be somewhat prepared and plan to do all the ride. just was unexpected.

Goodluck!


and someone send her some money! its a GREAT cause!

My work is donating some of it profits in august to the make a wish foundation. I work at dairy queen so when someone buys a blizzard a profit of it goes to the foundation. We also have one of those little boxes by the cash registers for people to put their change in and it goes to the foundation. Just thought you would like to know since you're participate in this event.
