Throughout this ride, I will be gathering strength from my Grandpa Jerry Hoogland (2010) and Grandma Ardith Krell (2021) who were lost to cancer. Also, my mom, Jennifer Krell who courageously fought off breast cancer in 2014. The challenge of riding 500+ miles in one day is incomparable to the physical, mental and financial challenges cancer patients endure. My ride will be a time of focus, reflection and prayer for all who have and will face this ugly burden. I thank you all so deeply for you support.
As a part of the Snowball Cancer Challenge 2023, Nick and a group of riders on Feb 9, 2023 and Feb 16, 2023 will attempt to ride 500+ miles in ONE DAY – The Valentine 500. These riders will obtain pledges and donations to keep them motivated on their long ride(s). The money raised will go to the Keller Family Community Foundation to support their mission. All donations will be tax deductible.
