    Thumbs up Help for Juvenile Diabetes and a Great Guy

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    You’ve all read about Homey and his incredible willingness to help. Maillotpois calls him the Yoda of Cycling. I wouldn’t have made it through the heat of the SLO Wildflower without him. He obviously made a huge difference to Veronica during the Central Coast Double. Maillotpois is hoping to break the sound barrier the Davis Double this weekend and I think Jobob will be next on the Homey list based on her burgeoning long distance riding career.

    Homey is riding RAAM again this year, but this time on a mixed 4-person team and they are raising money for Juvenile Diabetes.

    Their official website: http://www.colourprep.com/teamjdrf/

    We can support Homey and the Juvenile Diabetes research by purchasing a time station or an entire state. A time station can be purchased for $100-$300 or a full state can be purchased for $500. When the team approaches our claimed state or time station the appointed person will receive a call about the team’s progress. These funds will allow the team to purchase gas along the way for the support vehicles. RAAM is an expensive event and even more so when you’re trying to raise funds for a worthwhile cause at the same time.

    Would anyone like to join us? Anyone like to see Amici Veloci on the team’s website as a fast friend of Homey and an excellent foundation? I'll be sure that Homey and the team get the names of all who participated.

    If so, please post here as soon as possible and send me a confidential PM with the amount. As soon as I get some idea of the total funds (hopefully by the end of the day), I’ll commit so we get our name up as far in advance of the June 10th start as possible.

    The easiest and fastest way I can collect your funds is via PayPal but please remember that PayPal will collect a percentage. sarahandbubba at sbcglobal dot net.

    Thanks, as always, for your support.

    I've always wanted to purchase a state.

    (I hope George Pinney will not be the Team JDRF crew chief this year, otherwise ... they're doomed! )

    Ok, the race is on! We need $500 total.

    I'll inquire about California and New Jersey.

    I'm in. The finish line would be cool, but Joisey or Khalifornia would be great too. I'll leave it to the Great Decider or her humble protege.

    We can get the finish line and the state (if it's still avaialble). Double whammy.

    But "seeing" them off in California while they're still conscious would be good, too.

    What's our total thus far? Would $1000 get us both Jersey and California?

    How about California and the Finish Line? (Who really cares about the rest of Joisey anyway? ).

    Well, you can't separate the finish line from Jersey. I think we're stuck with Jersey if we want the finish line. Plus, there are some nice areas in Jersey - lovely countryside. And the Newark Airport is actually a great airport. Way better than Dulles, for example. (I'm really trying here....)

    We can't buy the Finish Line time station, and the entire glorious state of California?

    Depending on our budget, what about the starting station and the finishing station. Or you just have to have an ENTIRE state.
