Just wanted to take this opportunity to extend another THANK YOU to all of you who supported me for the 2008 edition of the Get Your Guts in Gear ride. Way back when (it seems forever ago), I shared my desire to raise over $2000 for Crohn's disease research and awareness. I'm proud to say - thanks to you - the donations continue to come in and as of today I have not only met, but EXCEEDED my goal, raising
Some additional donations may trickle in, but all the ones I was expecting have finally been logged and I couldn't be more thilled, or grateful. Your generosity is really appreciated and on behalf of the organizations that will benefit from your support, another hearty thank you!
Also, before we put the final wraps on this year's ride, I thought you'd enjoy a few pics from the weekend. . .
