My TEAM 22 Story

I 'm so excited for this year's Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo - benefiting the Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities, Minnie's Food Pantry, and RockTeen Youth mentoring. Please consider signing up and participating this fall (Sept 12th).
This will be my 5th year riding in the ESGF. The inaugural ride in 2016 was my second 100-mile ride that year, and my last major event before getting diagnosed with AML Leukemia. Emmitt and Pat invited me to dinner after hearing my story, and were so inspiring and encouraging during my recovery. After surviving a stem-cell transplant to cure the Leukemia in July 2017, I was just able to finish the 2.2 mile family ride in September that year - 260 days after my diagnosis.
Last year I finished in the top half of the 94-mile Gran Fondo participants, and our entire family came out for the event - Julie, Larry & Trudy (Grandparents), and all 5 kids. 2 of our kids (Bonnie & Freja) even finished the 22 mile event with Julie.
Pat & Emmitt - welcome to Southfork Ranch!
