While closing out 2021 and moving into 2022 I cant help but count all the blessing in my life. While no one close to me has been effected by cancer, I know many who have had their lives ripped apart by it. I want to do everything in my power to help people in any way that I can. As a part of the Snowball Cancer Challenge 2022, a group of riders on Feb 10, 2022 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.

Thank you so much for the donation Rich! I just wanted to send an update and big thank you. We started at 4:38 AM in a snow storm which made visibility super tricky. We kept a good pace and by sun up were almost still on time. We kept after it all day long through some great and some terrible trails. We had one mechanical failure (belt broken on the Yamaha), and I got temporally stuck in a 6ft snow bank after crossing a frozen waterway but all good. We made it to the check in spot at 5:08PM, exactly 500 miles and exactly 12.5 hours after we started (how about that 40 mph average). Nobody was waiting on us so we kept knocking on the door to the registration place. The ladies eventually opened the door and said hey look it’s the PA riders. Apparently the nearest group to us is still 100 miles behind. I said hey its not a race and they replied yes but you still won! We continued up the road 20 additional miles to the hotel and prepared to head to the banquet. The entire event was amazing and to see all the help everyone could bring coming together was humbling for me. All is well we are safe and good – smiles all around after a very challenging day! Thank you again!
