The Big Check – 2007! This is even bigger than was forecasted. The original goal, I believe was $27 million. Then Billy Starr talked at the opening ceremony about $28 million. But $33 million. Amazing!
Here is the best part – every single penny that was raised by the riders went to the Jimmy Fund this year. Not 95% or 99% – 100%. That means all of the folks who donated to my ride – every dollar went to the Jimmy Fund…. I am so thankful to each of you who helped me meet my goal of $5000 raised, it was a small part of a big pot, but this is the way to the ultimate goal. One dollar and one mile at a time. Today, we truly are closer to a cure for cancer.
