Support and encouragement are coming in and I really appreciate it. It's gonna take a lot to get my butt 40 miles on a bike!
Donation pledges are also coming from friends, family and folks who I have never met in person but who are kind-hearted enough to support this cause.
Thank you to all of you.
I will share one note from my Aunt Shirley. Her son Marshall, (my cousin), also has autism. He was my first and only contact with Autism for a very long time. He is now 40. My aunt, my uncle Jim, their daughters Stephanie and Tracy have always been there for Marshall and I want to say that I admire them for that. Just know that I will have Marshall in mind while I ride as well. I miss all of you very much. You too Grandma. =) I didn't forget you.
Here's her note:
