The countdown is on.
On Saturday, October 2-that is, in nine days-Dunreith and I will head out on a fundraising bike ride.
She will join me for some portion of the ride, which will be 100 kilometers in all.
The most I’ve ever ridden in a day before is about 44 miles, so I’m anticipating the ride to be a stretch, but not an unduly burdensome one.
I’m riding to raise money for four separate causes.
Dunreith and I have created a page on the Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Association where people who want to give to that organization can do so in honor of Marty, her dad.
For those people who are willing to contribute, our first name is “Dunreith and Jeff” and our last name is “Kelly Lowenstein.”
We’ve also set up a page in honor of my stepmother Diane Lowenstein on the Society of Saint John the Evangelist who are so inclined.
I’ve set up pages for each of those groups for anyone who wants to support them.
In addition to Dunreith’s joining me for the first leg of the ride, about 10 performance artists from Kuumba Lynx who are doing their own fundraising will go along, too. A friend and Dart Fellow may join me for one of the event’s latter stages.
My goal is to raise $1,000 per charity, or $4,000 in all.
We welcome any help you can give, and want to be clear that spreading the word counts.
