Reach the Beach!


About a year ago, my husband started riding his bicycle to work everyday. His initial goal was to lose weight and get in shape, but his riding quickly took on a more ambitious aspect. To keep himself motivated, he set a goal of a 'century' ride, which is a ride of 100 miles or more.

After months of hard and dedicated training, Dennis will be participating in the American Lung Association of Oregon's annual Reach the Beach fundraiser this Saturday. He will be riding 103 miles from Portland to Pacific City!

So far, he has raised a respectable $170.00 for the American Lung Association of Oregon. Donations are still being accepted, and if you'd like to help Dennis reach his goal of $500.00, click here.

As someone with asthma, I thank everyone who supports the American Lung Association. Most especially, I thank Dennis, for working so hard to meet his goal - I couldn't be more proud! Now get out there, and Reach the Beach!
