Oh My Gosh!! It’s here.

Today was crazy. I can’t believe how wild it was. We had so much to do. It was fun this afternoon because we got all the vehicles ready, sponsor stickers, blinking signs, food, medicines, bike parts, and bikes. Then we took them all to the Police Department to be stored for the night. It was cool to see all the cars caravan down the street all done up. It was fun to have so much crew together too. I can hardly wait till tomorrow!

There is a boy named William that lives in my neighborhood and we go to church together. He is 9 years old and this week he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. My Mom and his Mom are friends and it has really been hard to know Will is going through surgeries and Chemo this week. Living in a hospital is my least favorite thing so I feel bad for him. Today we taped a picture of William on our bikes to think of his fight and remember that the one thing we all have no matter what is “HOPE”. Our team name this year is “Connor’s Hope” and Will will remind me of that every day.

I’ll keep you all posted on the crazy days ahead, I can tell you after today the people on my team are CRAZY so it should be fun.
