the Pan Mass Challenge

 A great friend and John after a century ride to benefit Juvenile Diabetes research

On August 7th and 8th, my husband John will join more than 5,000 other cyclists in the 31st Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a bike-a-thon that raises money for cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.  This spectacular event raised more than $35 million last year by donating 100% of all rider raised funds to the DFCI. The PMC holds the promise of helping eradicate this disease which affects millions each year.
To help the PMC team reach their 2010 goal, John has been asked to raise over $4,200 to participate.
He will be riding 190 miles over the two days.  Will you please support this great cause? We are asking people to consider the following three donations:
•.25 cents per mile = $50
•.50 cents per mile = $100
•$1 per mile = $200

Although any donation at all would be greatly appreciated!!  Thank you!!!

Please go to his personal page to make your donation online to support this great cause:

Anyone know where we are now?

here we go surfin'!!

J had his very first surfing lesson yesterday!  We have had the fliers from The Nantucket Island Surf School collected from the past 3 summers, and finally decided that he was a capable enough swimmer to start some lessons.  Oh my!  He was THRILLED to be taking a lesson and he had a blast.  I think that C wants to try next week. :)  That will be fun because John will be here and will be on vacation as opposed to working remotely.  So much better.

"look mom!  no hands!!"

and even though he didn't want to take a surf lesson, C had a BLAST boogie boarding!
