Life Without Lupus - Wheels for a Life without Lupus

Monday, November 24, 2008

Success! I finished up a 4-hour ride on Saturday, including a 2-hour test, at the Lehigh County Velodrome with some good speed and power output. Alas, the training is working. It was mighty chilly at 19 degrees and a 15-mph wind, but it gave me an excellent benchmark. Sunday's ride was similar, but on the roads of NY. Good progress. The Lupus Gala which we attended was hugely successful. It looks like that event raised $2.5 million, most of which will go to specific programs and lupus research. Hopefully, the local/regional trades will start to pick up this story. The Ride for a Life without Lupus is now posted on the website. We're building energy...

Love, Shelly

It takes dedication to create change, I am so proud of your effort.
You will 'ride the wind' at the Velodrome in April bringing awareness to many who do not know of this disease.
As Alex said, "either you know someone now or you will know someone in the future with Lupus. If you don't, you now know me!"

The Gala was spectacular. Thank you!
love you,
