On Sept. 13th, I decided to participate in the Century Ride. On Sept. 15th, I came to NH, I rode to Boston, I CONQUERED! Now the hard part..
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the 2012 Wediko Century Ride!
Wediko Children's Services is a Boston-based agency that helps children who are struggling with emotional, behavioral, and learning issues. Wediko works in Boston schools and provides services to both children and their families. Through many different avenues: their Boston and NYC offices, on their New Hampshire campus, and in the BPS school system, Wediko restores hope to children, familes, and everyone this organization touches--including former staff like myself!
In an impulsive and VERY last minute decision, (somehow) rode the 100 miles, beginning at Wediko's New Hampshire campus and crossing the finish line at their Boston Headquarters in the South End. Last year, I trained (at least a little...and at least had a bike!) and prepared for this event more throughly. This year, once Spetember snuck up on me and I had neither raised money nor trained,I figured I wouldn't be able to ride. However, at the very last minute, I decided to ride this year to challenge myself and, most importantly, support Wediko..and I'm SO GLAD that I did!
Money raised will benefit all of the great work Wediko does as well as support efforts to "green" the NH setting by building a hydro-electric dam.
Wediko has not only changed the lives of so many children and families, but they have definitely impacted mine as well! Please visit the Wediko website to learn more about this amazing agency and programs that they offer.
I could not have completed the ride without the support of friends and family- epsecially, of course, my Wediko family!
