Looking at the calendar today, I realized that NorCal AIDS Cycle is only about six weeks away. Panic started in, as I realized that a) I haven’t been training enough, and b) I’ve been lax about my fund-raising.
With Easter nearly past however, training starts in earnest. All days off will be occupied with bike riding for the next six weeks. And I predict some extra days off in there too.
On the fund-raising front… for those of you who have been planning to support the ride, the time to donate is now! Overall, giving to the ride is down this year from the last two years. Though we’ve managed to raise over a quarter of a million dollars for each of the last two years, at this point, total donations are under $100,000. So we have a long way to go if we are going to match or surpass last year’s total
Our team, River City Roadies is very excited about our team jerseys, which have now been ordered and are in the process of being manufactured. Jakroo did a wonderful job of taking our rather vague instructions and logos, and making a very classy looking jersey. We’re looking forward to wearing them out on the road!
Mark your calendar! On Sunday, April 21st at 4:00 pm, I will be giving a benefit organ concert for NCAC at Trinity Cathedral. I hope you will plan to join me for an afternoon of great pipe organ music, which is also an opportunity to support this great cause. You’ll hear more about this soon!
Ok… time to get back to work. It’s Easter Eve, and I have a little bit of work to do!
