Everyone has that person - the one that can brighten your day with a laugh, reassure you with a kind word, warm your heart with a glance of their eyes, and make you feel joy with their smile ... makes you remember what it is like to be alive - MAGIC.
Then that person gets sick; very sick. Selfishly you start to imagine a world without this person in it. It is not a world you are excited about being a part of.
That person turns to a special place that is known for making miracles happen...Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Within the walls of this institution live some of the most spectacular humans. They take my friend in and, through a long and painful journey, they make her better. How do you repay the people and the place that saved a friend's life? You get your fat ass on a bike and start pedalling 500 miles across NY State - from NYC to Niagara Falls. You have five days to complete the ride in hopes of bringing needed funds and attention to the place that saves lives daily.
I am asking for your help in getting to the start line, in advancing research, in finding cures to the horribleness that is cancer ... you know, cash. If nothing more, please visit www.redshoeadventures.com and learn more about a person that is pure MAGIC.
Thank you for being amazing. I love you all. My ass hurts already.
