Click The Title Of The Post To Comment And Don't Forget To "Subscribe to Endurance Riding" To Stay Updated On My Journey Towards The Tevis Cup!

**AS OF AUGUST 20th, 2013: We have raised $3,047.51! The check is in the mail for The Olmalaika Home in Kenya.**

Tomorrow, I leave for Robie Park… I can’t believe after more than 2 years, Tevis 2013 is upon us! I am both excited and nervous and overwhelmed with all the packing I have to do today. I want to be there already, relaxing in ride camp before the big day… We ride at dawn on Saturday!!!

Before I leave for Tevis, I wanted to post a list of our donors thus far… to date, we’ve raised $2,259.14! Next week, while I’m recovering from the ride, I will be spending some time with my girlfriend, Bren. I will present her with a check, that she will then forward to the girls’ home in Kenya.
