A little help?

I have written about Elden "Fatty" Nelsen before. First off, I identify (far too much) with someone who goes by "The Fat Cyclist" and secondly I really respect what he's doing. Elden's blog is largely about his wife's fight against breast cancer, which isn't going so well. He has been a long-time supporter of the LiveStrong foundation, resulting in Lance giving Fatty's wife a shout out. This year he decided to put together a grand scheme to have the largest team ever pulled together for the LiveStrong Challenge and raise more money than any team had before. (For the details from the horse's mouth, go here.)

I've decided to jump in, and have signed up for the San Jose ride. If you are willing to sponsor me, please go here and make a pledge. I think it's a great cause and will be using this as incentive to get myself in shape to do a metric century (100 km) ride. If you have questions, let me know.

Thanks in advance.

One thing I forgot last night - If you are interested there are a number of other riders who are raffling off prizes for people who donate. I'm not able to do that, but Fatty is (see the link to his site above) and as I come across others I'll post them.

  1. Hey. Just stumbled across your blog and noticed a mention of TFC. I follow his blog too, and wish you the best of luck in your efforts to help out. Good luck in San Jose, city of my birth!
