Meaningful words from donors; aka friends, family, loved ones

As people support my ride and donate, they have the opportunity to post a note to me. Here's what I've received so far. I will take these words and notes of inspiration with me on my journey. I couldn't do this without all the love and support I've received. THANK YOU!


Written by me when I donated to my own journey: Dedicated to all my former 7th grade students who struggled in school as a result of being overweight.
