Last year, Sarah and I worked with team in training to do a Century. Sarah raised a ton of money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. That helps to make you feel pretty good – but along the way, we had the pleasure of meeting a woman named Cici Fernandes. I can’t really tell you, in words, how wonderful a person Cici is, but I can tell you she is non-stop bucket of inspiration. She was the 6th highest fund raiser for her century. She started the “journey” on some 50 pound 40 year old bike … finished on a borrowed Cannondale. She loved cycling and loved raising money for her charity! I helped her shop for and find a great deal on a bike and she is taking on the Lake Tahoe Century soon – again in her quest to raise money for TNT.
Cici’s mom died of leukemia, so for her – it’s more than just a passion. I know times are tough – but Cici is at it again. She has set a high goal of $6000! I know she will do it… I just wanted to help her out a little bit. So -if you can- take a moment and hit Cici’s fund raising page. Throw her a little donation. Every penny counts and I can promise you – you will get a friend out of the deal!
Her energy and smile are truly contagious! I’m just sharing the wealth! Look out Lake Tahoe! Cici is coming to town!
