Welcome to my fund raising page! I'm very excited to raise money for a cause that I believe in. I hope that you are able to contribute. This will be our second year of doing this ride. We are doing it to give back to the group of people whom have supported us during our last 4 years of troubles. Our son is 22 years old with an addiction. He refuses the help he needs right now, but we are hoping that one day he will get the help he needs before it is to late. Teen Challenge and Stan Achey team have been there every time we have needed their guidance, Kevin for being straight up with us and telling me how it really is. So this cause is dear to me and we will continue on this fight for his recovery.
By Contributing you are helping many addicts get the treatment they need.
Thank you for at least considering our cause!
