Go Team Blue Skies!!

Last year, Kyle Bryant originated the idea of Ride Ataxia - riding his three-wheeled cycle from San Diego to the annual National Ataxia Foundation meeting in Memphis. It took two months to get there, and in the process he raised $40,000 to fund Ataxia research and he raised awareness of the disease. He's riding to the annual meeting again this year with the hopes of raising more money and awareness, and some of my family members are joining him! For this trip, they'll leave from Sacramento on March 15 and arrive in Las Vegas on March 28.

Why is this important to me? Well, Brianne Konanz is my sister-in-law, Cheri Martin's, sister. Brianne has Friedreich's Ataxia. Please take a moment to look at the teams' blog: If you are interested in making a donation, here is the link:

Thank you!
