Trek 100 June 7th, 2013
Angry Monkeys Racing had a strong showing at the Trek 100 . We had about 13 members out on the course riding at different levels. Bit of background on the Trek 100. Proceeds from this great ride for a great cause support critical pediatric cancer and related blood disorder research. The Trek 100 is the mainstay of the MACC Fund's athletic fundraisers. It is one of the largest fundraising efforts for childhood cancer and related blood disorder research in the United States.
Since 1990, the Trek 100 has contributed over $11.5 million to support pediatric cancer and related blood disorder research! The Trek 100 provides large scale support for research, thanks to riders, donors, sponsors and volunteers. This year is the 25th Annual ride through Southeastern Wisconsin at the home of Trek Bicycle Corporation in Waterloo, Wisconsin.
The riders involved this year were Travis, Julie, Chris, Kathleen, Anne-Marie, Muse, Chelsea, Carl, Laura M., & a few on B-cycles: Tyler, Laura A., Brandon, Mio. We had riders participating in every level of riding. Overall it was a fantastic day and the weather was perfect. Muse, Travis, Jule & Chris were our 100 miler group. It was great to see all the Angry Monkeys kits out on the course and hear people yelling our team name on the road. I was having a proud moment when I looked around the finish area and could pick out members of our team. The photos of our fun times do not do it justice. The real excitement is knowing that as a team we raised over $2200 for the MACC Fund. I am so proud of the team and its commitment not only to cycling but our communities children.
