This September, residential HVAC technicians Zach Woods and Ryan Keith are joining over 17,000 other cyclists across the United States in the Great Cycle Challenge, an event organized by the Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) to help fight kid’s cancer. The CCRF is a national non-profit that has, since 1981, contributed millions to research, support programs, education, and awareness outreach in efforts of ending childhood cancer.
While this is their first time participating in the event, they are no strangers to cycling – Zach has been riding for three years, and Ryan for one. As individuals, they ride an average of 120 – 150 miles per week. When they found the event on Facebook, they felt passionate about the cause and decided to commit as a team. For the Challenge, their goal is to ride 800 miles and raise $1,000 in pledges.
To track their progress or make a donation, you can find them on the Great Cycle Challenge website under their team name “Mamma Peg” (greatcyclechallenge.com/teams/mammapeg), or on their individual Facebook accounts.
