Received a comment recently from Tiffney Batton about spreading the word about an event named Timmy’s Challenge. Here’s the message:
My name is Tiffney Batton. I am trying to get the word out about a great bike ride I am helping organize for Timmy’s Fund-a local nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting families who are currently battling childhood cancer. All gifts and donations will be used to relieve the financial and emotional burdens of families who are undergoing treatment at WVU’s Children’s Hospital. This 100 mile, 2 day ride takes place in North Bend state park-a beautiful scenic ride along the rail trail. There are great incentives for top fundraisers, and also the satisfaction that riders are helping families just like mine, who have a child struggling with cancer. My daughter was 2 years old when she was diagnosed, and during her 48 weeks of chemo,Timmy’s fund was a constant source of comfort and help. She is now 5 years old and CANCER FREE! Our family is so thankful for all Timmy’s fund has done, and want to help other families who are still in the fight of their lives. Will you please help me get the word out about this amazing opportunity for cyclists to unite & help over 50 families currently seeking treatment at WVUCH? Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Our website is http://www.timmyschallenge.org
I thought I would take the time to cover a little bit about this event:
Time: Saturday, August 27 at 8:00am – August 28 at 5:00pm
Location: North Bend State Park
Description: What’s Your Challenge?
Have you ever thought of doing a 5k…10k….Half or Full Marathon? How about a 100 bike ride along the North Bend Rail Trail over 2 days?
If this event is calling your name, go to the Timmy’s Challenge Webpage and register today. This is going to be an awesome weekend. Timmy’s Century was such a HUGE success that we decided to up the ante and add in some additional events for 2011.
Check back here or the website for further updates….the planning hasn’t stopped yet. On Sunday, August 28th, we are going to have a day in the park for all non-participants. We are wanting a couple of bands to play at the amphitheater, there will be a huge cookout and games and family fun throughout the park.
Please invite all your friends out to this fantastic weekend and help us raise enough money to purchase the property for Timmy’s Place.
