The 9th Annual Jill's House Ride
June 17, 2017
A week from Saturday, the 17th of June, I’ll be riding in the 9th Annual Ride for Jill’s House. Jill’s House exists to serve families raising children with special needs and they do it for no other reason than THEY CARE. It’s not my first ride with them and I’ve seen the work they do and the people’s lives they touch and it’s inspiring to see folks making life a little better for others.
Anyway, 2017 marks the 9th year they are sponsoring a ride to raise money to keep the mission of Jill’s House alive. I’m riding because I believe in and appreciate the work they are doing and you can help too. Give a gift right now to help continue the work that Jill’s House is doing. Skip that next trip to Starbucks and give that few dollars to folks that will cherish and appreciate it more than you can imagine. And it really doesn’t matter if your gift is just a couple of dollars or if you want to fund the entire goal of $125,000 singlehandedly. Every gift, large and small is appreciated; just do it. Thank you for enabling these people to continue the special work that they do.
Absolutely unbelievable to me that a highly suspect group of people such as yourselves listed on the Honor Roll to the right could have banded together the way you have to provide a whopping $980 to such a worthy cause. I am in AWE at the generosity and caring spirit you have shown towards these kids and their families and literally at a loss for words to express my gratitude for your individual acts of kindness that when put together, amount to one heck-of-a substantial gift to Jill’s House that none of us could have hoped to accomplish alone. I thank each of you for what you have done and Natalie, for being the first to contribute, I owe you that ride anytime your sweetie doesn’t object. J

Sorry to be a bother with a 2nd update in one day, BUT Brady’s gift a few minutes ago just put the amount collected for Jill’s House on my page to well over $1,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You people on the Honor Roll have left me feeling like a kid on Christmas morning. I am speechless, and for someone who runs his mouth as much as me, that is really something! THANK YOU ALL!!! I appreciate it and I know that the kids who stay at Jill’s House will benefit from your generosity and appreciate it very much as well!!!
