Tour de Cure 2009

Hi all,
Yes, it has been awhile. This past weekend we went to Oregon so that Gordon, Evan and Papa could ride the Tour de Cure 2009 ride for diabetes. We have a lot of people we know who have diabetes, and Evan thought it would be fun to do a ride with his dad and Papa; thus, "Three Generations" team was founded!

We have been preparing for a few weeks for this ride. I set up Evan's web page and sent out a ton of emails to get donations to help support this cause. Every rider pays a $25 riding fee, plus is required to get $150 in donations by the day of the ride. With the love and support of all of you, Evan personally raised $845.00. I believe you can still donate if you did not and would like to. You can go to http://http// to donate. You only have a few days left, so hurry if you want to make a donation!
Anyways, I also made up team support t-shirts for myself, Sierra, Uncle Brad, and Grammy. Nothing too fancy, but fun anyways. It was a hot, hot day. Sierra ended up sick, with a fever. She slept most of the day. You can see she is laying on the turf, waiting for the guys to get back from the ride.
Evan, daddy and papa rode in honor of the following people that we know with diabetes.
*Uncle Tim
*Allie Bird
*Hailey Konze
*Betty Frankina
If we missed anyone, we are sorry. We tried to think of our close friends and family.
All in all, it was a great day spent in honor of our loved ones. Thanks to all who supported this great ride!!
