Dear Family and Friends
It seems like yesterday that I was out on my ride to New York. Today I took Dylan to get some decorations for his X-mas tree that he wanted in his room. Dylan is doing very well and his cancer is in remission. As the holidays are upon us I find myself today looking at maps trying to figure out which route the next Ride For Wishes will take. In the late summer early fall of 2011 I will again hit the road to help bring awareness to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and help to grant wishes for three kids that have life threatening medical conditions, to enrich the human experience with hope,strength and joy.. This coming years ride will take me to the four geographical corners of the lower 48 states,at each corner I will hang wish stars that you filled out and gave to remind everyone that the kids are the stars and deserve every effort we can make to help grant one heart felt wish to each eligible child. It is the generosity of people like you that make these wishes come true. I have set up a website to make it real easy to make a donation https://secure.wish.org/ourfriends/007-000/rideforwishes.htm 100% of all donations go directly to The Make-A-Wish Foundation. There have been 200,000 wishes granted since 1980 when the first wish of 7 year old Chris G. was granted to be a police officer. 27 years later Dylan had his wish to be a sheriff granted by the Orange County Sheriffs Department. I would like to thank each and everyone of you for you support in our mission to help these kids have ONE WISH.
If you would like more information on obtaining a wish star to be hung at the corner of your choice please contact me at Rideforwishes@aol.com or give me a call at 714-875-1273
