Cycling to Raise Awareness for Diabetes and Support Camp Carolin

In 1989, when I was much younger, I road my bike from Winston-Salem, NC to Las Vegas, NV in 19 days. Why? I was young, stupid and needed inspiration. This year is the 30th Anniversary of that trip.   My good friend John Nagel, who served as my support crew, and I wanted to do something to commemorate the ride. This August 11th I will be attempting to ride the first leg of my initial trip - from Winston-Salem, NC to Black Mountain, NC. This 150 mile personal challenge is to hopefully bring awareness and funds to the ADA to help continue the wonderful things that they do day in and day out. In some aspects it doesn’t sound like much, just riding the first leg, but I am no longer 23 years old!

Pediatric Stroke Charity Event

The 2nd Annual Stand with Bentley, Stroke Charity Event

Date: November 3rd, 2019

Time: 1PM-7PM

Location: The Barn at Heritage Farm
152 Heritage Farm Ln, Dobson, NC 27017

On January 5, 2017, Nathan and I were able to meet one of the sweetest blessing we could ever ask for and that was our son Bentley. Just one day later, we found out that Bentley had suffered from a stroke at birth causing seizures and having extensive brain damage. We spoke with many doctors and were prepared for what might come from this such as weakness and movement issues on his left side, vision impairment, possible motor and development delays, and more. We met monthly with nurses and doctors, only for them to tell us that Bentley was developing perfectly. He is our miracle baby and has a true testimony to share with the world. Bentley has since been discharged and continues to show no signs of damage.
