I arrived back home in La Center this afternoon after completing nearly 3,350 miles riding from Portland to Portland (Oregon to Maine). This coming weekend I plan on adding to this total mileage by riding from Fort Stevens State Park on the Oregon coast back to Portland, OR. This will complete a coast to coast ride this summer.
As of Friday, August 9th, the Cycling for Leader Dogs project has raised more than $82,000 for Leader Dogs for the Blind. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored this effort and/or worked to make this effort such a huge success. We started out with the goal of raising $35,000 and we blew by that goal shortly after we began the trip on June 16th. Wow! Way to go everyone!
Leader Dogs will need to close out this project at the end of August. It is not too late to join the hundreds and hundreds of sponsors who unselfishly contributed to Leader Dogs through this project. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all those generous sponsorships. If you would like to join them, please click the link on the right side of this page, mail in your donation (see instructions below the link on the right), or go to www.leaderdog.org. All sponsorship donations (100%) go directly to Leader Dogs for the Blind.
Finally, be sure to check out our Facebook Fan Page as well as my cycling journal for the trip to experience the daily efforts made as part of this Lions project.
