Hi everyone! I'm so excited to ride for Team Lifeblood this year. Last year, I formed my own group, Miles for Marrow, that rode 540 miles around Minnesota and raised almost $5000 for Be the Match. It was through that ride that I was introduced to Bob and Team Lifeblood. Although I cannot ride on their epic cross-country adventure this year, I am racing in the DAMN (or the Day Across Minnesota) this August: a 240 miles gravel road race from Gary SD to Hager City, WI in 24 hours! My goal is to raise $580, or $2 a mile.
My own story with Be the Match started in 2016 when my father was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Today, thanks to a transplant from Be the Match, his cancer is dormant and our family has been given an enormous amount of hope that we didn't have three years ago. It is my goal to give back to this organization in any way I can each year.
Thank you in advance for your donation. Be the Match continues to save lives every day!
