If each INDIVIDUAL raises $500, we can order Team Jerseys with the Team Name and American Lung Association on them. MUST be ordered by April 20th and in blocks of 5.

Fundraising Goal: There is a MINIMUM commitment per individual to raise $150 but more would be greatly accepted.

If this is an issue we can work together to make it happen. Also, your employer or organization(s) you belong to could be on the list Gift Match Participants (ask for a list). Additionally, if someone, employer, local organization etc. wants to sponsor us vs. donating to ALA, this could assist in paying for Team Jerseys or something else..

As a member of the American Lung Association Leadership Team, I would happy to speak with anyone who you may feel uncomfortable approaching to Donate (your company, professional associations, family etc...)

We want to do whatever we can to make this a successful Fundraising Campaign and have Tons of Fun doing it!

This isn't the Tour de France but the Tour de Healthy Fun!
My very 1st ride was last year at the tender age of 51 and I did 28 miles, Yee-Ha, could not believe I did that. It's amazing and so gratifying.

So, just because you're not Lance Armstrong, you can still feel like a Pro when you ride across the Finish Line having done 1 Mile or 100 Miles. You will know that you've had fun, done something amazing and all the while you've supported a very worthy cause!!

We will be putting together some training rides prior to the event so we can all meet and feel comfortable getting on the road. Will advise and also ask for dates that work for everyone.

Will be updating this blog a few times a week, so stay tuned!!

Thanks and Love,
Renee & Bil XOXO
