A Father’s Ride Day 8-The Ride Home

It is the eighth and final day of A Father’s Ride, and today we will pedal the 74 miles from Cuba, MO to St. Louis. Today’s ride is dedicated to Matthew, Andrew, and Annie-the inspiration for this ride.

I would like to thank everyone that made a donation at www.matthewandandrew.org. Thank you for the prayers, support and encouragement along the way. Please visit www.bethematch.org and sign up for a kit to join the bone marrow registry. The kit will be mailed to you and it is a simple swab of the mouth. An average of 10,000 people are in need of a bone marrow transplant each year. Unfortunately, only half find a match. This was only one small step in our endeavor to get the word out about HLH. Spread the word to your family, friends, and pediatrician. It may save a loved one’s life someday.

The finish line today will be at the Lone Wolf Coffee Company in Ballwin, MO. I anticipate arriving around 12:30. Everyone is welcome to join us!
