Team YL Tulsa raises awareness and funds for Tulsa Metro Young Life. Young Life is a Christian outreach to disinterested teenagers.
I'm excited about raising funds for Young Life because... I was aYoung Life kid and it really made a difference in my life. When I was lonely and lost my young life leader Joel spent time with me and and ministered to me. That was 14 years ago we are still friends and have been in each others weddings. Young Life persues those kids that fall through the cracks. I hope that if my children ever find themselves in a situation like I was in God will send someone like Joel to retrieve them.
I'm excited about cycling because... I'm diabetic and cycling hepls keep me above ground. It is fun to go fast and I love the friendships and challenges I have being on the team.
I'm trying to reach a goal of $1,200 to do the team ride, and the team goal is 60,000.
