January 15, 2015 - Update

It is time to give an update on all that has been happening since the last ride, the Jacobs Ride 180. I am working and going to school, both full time. When on the ride I got to meet up with Dr. John NiParko who performed my CI implant. He inspired me to return to school.  I did get a promotion at Whole Foods but unfortuantely it means a two hour commute each day and I miss being able to ride my bike to work.

I did get to meet one of the receipients of the funds from Jacob's Ride recently. Meeting the family and the child who received the implant has given me the inspiration and desire to start another ride.  As alot of you know it is so thrilling to see the change the CI can make in some one's life. I want to raise $100,000 to pay for ten more surgeries for those needing a CI by the end of this summer!
