3 Hours and $2,300 Later…

…and Beemer is now 2/3 of the way to his goal!

imageAll I can say is wow!

Tyler Glen from Star FM came out to Murray Chevrolet Cadillac here in Brandon, but the city limits didn’t keep good folks away from a great cause.

A gentleman heard Beemer on the radio and drove to the dealership…from over 50 miles away…to come meet “the young lad who was biking across the prairies!” and give a donation.

We had friends and friends of friends from right across the city come out and support Brandon, helping him get closer to his goal.  Lots of families came out too, and some very special kids who live with Type 1.

We signed up some more folks for the Community Bike Ride next weekend and talked with a lot of people about what it’s like to live with Type 1 – the reason we’re doing all this!


We got to meet a very cool kid – Porter – who was sadly diagnosed with Type 1 in June.  His parents and their friends came together and raised hundreds and hundreds of dollars, and delivered it to us today at the dealership!  We’re definitely going to get that family on board with Cyclebetes next year! ;o)

It’s not hard to raise some big dollars for such a great cause when dozens and dozens of families show up with open hearts.  Thank you AGAIN to the folks who live in this community!
