Tommy’s Ride in support of The Make-a-Wish Foundation!
February 25 @ 12:15 pm - 2:15 pm$100
Join us at XCYCLE on Sunday, February 25th for our monthly Ride for a Reason! We are so excited to be supporting such an amazing organization – The Make a Wish Foundation. Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. At Make-A-Wish®, they believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us and inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. Join the XCYCLE community at this very special Ride for a Reason to support the kick off of the Make-A-Wish® Walk for Wishes – which is held every year to support this great organization. This year the Walk for Wishes will be on Saturday, March 10th.
One of our amazing riders – Heather Harris – has been riding with us since day one, she has supported XCYCLE, all of our instructors, team & now XENXEN, as well. When planning our February Ride for a Reason, we thought what better way to show our support in return than to host this charity ride for her, her family, and the Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada Foundation. Heather has an amazing family – a great husband and two very special sons. Their youngest son, Tommy, has the most infectious smile and the kindest soul.
“But that’s not all that makes Tommy special. He is also the survivor of a life-threatening rare disease. At 19 months old, Tommy was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor in his skull caused by Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. Fear, pain, hospitals, specialists, medical clinics, needles, surgeries, he suffered through it all. Yet no matter what he faced, Tommy was brave and wasn’t giving in without a fight. Among the darkness of that difficult time, a bright light found its way to him in the form of Make-a-Wish. Tommy’s Wish brought him joy we could not have imagined and gave a renewed sense of hope to our whole family. Now that Tommy is in remission, we have dedicated ourselves to helping others who have been down this dark path. This week marks five years since the end of Tommy’s treatment and the beginning of his new life! A HUGE moment to celebrate! We want the same outcome for all children battling deadly diseases. But in the meantime, we also want to share that same joy and hope we felt from Tommy’s Wish. With that goal in mind, please join Team Tommy and help grant Wishes to local kids facing life-threatening illnesses. There are many more than you may think.” – Heather Harris
