Bike Party

Saturday was the first ever SMARDy Pants 40 Mile Ride.  It was a huge success and we felt so much love and support for Nate.  We had 18 riders representing 80 donors and amazingly we surpassed our fundraising goal.  I just can't tell you how blessed we feel and how excited we are to get Nate a wheelchair accessible van and to be able to contribute to SMARD research. 
Saturday morning we told Nate we were going to a bike party.  He took the idea very seriously and barely cracked a smile the whole day.  The rest of us had a lot of fun.  The weather was perfect for a morning ride and we enjoyed getting to welcome back the riders and chat with everyone. 

We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to all of our donors and volunteers and especially Mike Jacobsen, who first conceived the idea for the ride and made all of this happen.  The funds we raised will make a huge difference in Nate's life and the lives of other children living with SMARD.
We still have some t-shirts left from the event, so if you are a donor and would like one, please let me know!  If you're not a donor, shirts are $10 each and come in S-XL.  You can email me at to get your shirt.
