The Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund was established to support the cancer community in Minnesota

Hello my name is James Rienstra; 5 years ago my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, six short months later I lost a hero, a mentor, my Dad. This loss is what inspired me to complete this cross country journey. My goal is to raise $10,000 for the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund.

On May 20th 2011 I will be departing Zimmerman, MN to pedal my road bike to Anchorage, AK; to raise money for cancer research, to honor my father and all those who have been affected by cancer. From now until I start this journey I will periodically give updates about; my training, my previously mentioned fund raising endeavor, and other random tidbits that pertain to this challenge. I will be enduring this journey by myself, trying to raise as much money as I can until the end of July.

Once my ride begins, I intend to post on a daily basis. I will talk about how I am faring both physically and mentally while discussing each day's ride, track how many miles I have traveled; per day and in total. I will detail some of my sightseeing experiences, complain about how much I miss my friends and family, and pass on other stories that will hopefully keep you visiting my blog.

I hope that you will consider helping me reach my goal $10,000 by making a tax-deductible donation. You can either make a fixed donation or sponsor me by pledging pennies per mile.
100% of the proceeds raised will be given to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund.
