We haven’t even recovered from jet lag yet but there’s no time to take it easy because the McYongs are hard at work getting ready for our next big event. In just over two weeks, we’re hosting our second annual Recycle Ride Beer and Burger Night for pediatric transplant research. Everyone is invited to join us for a fun evening of trivia and great food!
We had a great turnout last year so we are hoping to have even more people out on July 24. If you can’t make it, you can always support the cause by buying raffle tickets or bidding on something in our live Facebook auction (which should be online on Monday). We have had great support from local businesses that have donated fabulous prizes. Check it out HERE. Tickets are just $2. Send me a message if you’d like to buy some!
Then there is the actual Recycle Ride itself on Sunday, July 30. I mention that last because it’s definitely an event reserved for the slightly crazy cyclist who is looking for a fun challenge. It is fully supported by an amazing team of volunteers who are well stocked with yummy food and plenty of liquids. Can you believe this will be the RR’s fourth year??
These events have turned into our big fundraisers for the Addison Pediatric Transplant Research Fund and we are so appreciative of everyone’s support, whether it’s by attending the Beer and Burger Night, donating a prize for the raffle/auction, buying a raffle ticket, or coming out to ride. We could not do it without you and please know that your contributions are funding important research that we know will make a difference for kids like Addison.
THANK YOU!!! (And hopefully see you on July 24!)
Elaine, Aaron, Addison and Charlie
PS I promise I’ll post more pics from our World Transplant Games soon.
