My Message

The nice thing about being friends with Mario is that you tend to not have to make contributions to things like honeymoon funds and wedding registries. You're welcome.

But there is an opportunity for you to support a cause that I am very passionate about. Every year (for two years running) I do a ride called RATPOD which raises money for children with cancer to have an awesome experience on a beautiful patch of land in Montana. It’s called Camp Mak-A-Dream. Many of us are so fortunate and sometimes it takes an event like this to be reminded of many others who're not.

These kids with cancer need our help. So hopefully for a few days they can forget their medical woes and just have a great time in Montana.

Usually, I just get my ass kicked on the bike all day (126 miles, up and down this stupid mountain range) and then I write a check. Then I lay down in my camper and cry myself to sleep, right after downing ibuprofen with cold beers.

This year I will do the same but in addition, I also hope that some of you can help me help some more kids to come to Montana for a week. It costs about $1,000 to get a sick camper to Camp Mak-A-Dream, so that’s my goal.

Also, I joined a team this year and together we're trying to raise $15,000.

My training for this event is always subpar, so by the end of the day there isn’t a soul in Montana more sore than I.

So this year, I will go into the race with NO training. Your support and the thought of helping these kids (I wonder what happens to the money if I die trying) is what’s going to keep me going.

Can you help with a small donation to help me bring a child with cancer to Montana for a week of awesome?

Thank you.
