August 11, 2018 – 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Chainbreaker Biking Event in Minnesota – Donate to Combat Childhood Cancer

Hi All,

The Chainbreaker fight against childhood cancer bike ride is scheduled for August 11. I’m signed up for the 25 mile ride. All proceeds go to finding a cure for childhood cancer and to Masonic Children’s Hospital located in Minneapolis MN. If you’d like to help out here’s my website where you can contribute – safe and secure: Melissa Blanchard’s Site for Chainbreakerride.org

I have 12 donations so far with a total of $300 toward my goal to collect $1,000 to help children overcome a diagnosis of cancer.

Give if you can and positive thoughts and prayers as I participate in the biking event on August 11th 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. from Eagan to Hampton, Minnesota will be appreciated.

Here’s some pictures from my 27 + miles put in since last beginning my training for making the 25 mile trek:

Turn The Page Bookstore Anniversary Book signing Event Today in Boonsboro Maryland

Hi All,

It’s sunny and warm in Minneapolis Minnesota today.

I’m getting into shape for a 25 mile biking event for fund raising for childhood cancer research, otherwise I’d be in Boonsboro, Maryland today celebrating literacy, authors and readers at Turn The Page Bookstore Cafe.

Since 2013 I’ve enjoyed going to Boonsboro Maryland to meet authors enjoy one of the best brick and mortar bookstore I’ve ever visited. I hope if you’re in the area you’ll take some time to check out Turn The Page Bookstore and celebrate literacy with other readers and authors.

If you can’t be there in person you can online shop at a safe and secure website Turn The Page Bookstore Cafe

I hope all are having great weather in Boonsboro, Maryland like we have here in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I made it over 5 miles on my bike this morning and up and down hills too. If you want to support my cancer fundraiser which is also a way for me to get healthier too by jump starting my daily work outs with walking or biking here’s my link:

100% of the proceeds go to cancer research and a hospital I’m proud to work for Masonic Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Fairview Team of Nurses, Doctors, and Computer support make a difference in helping children heal.

Enjoy the day.

Sincerely,
