Giving Back For Pediatric Cancer - Giving Back for Wesley

There are stories that touch our hearts that are brought to our attention by our treasured customers. One of those stories is the story of Wesley. Wesley is a 5-year old battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).

Wesley Battling ALL

His story was brought to our attention by his friend Michael. Michael has participated in the Great Cycle Challenge since it's inception, in an effort to raise awareness to children like Wesley. The Great Cycle Challenge is a month long cycling even that raises funds for children's cancer research that takes place every September to coincide with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Michael shared this story with us because Wesley has a special comfort friend, our very own Skipit Puppy Buddy Blanket, that he has affectionately named "Puppy".

Wesley and His Lovey Puppy

"Puppy" has been by Wesley's side through his battle against cancer, and Michael was inspired to get his very own puppy to accompany him on his Great Cycle Challenge rides, to give him motivation to ride further, and give back in the fight against childhood cancer. Michael embroidered his Puppy with Wesley's GCC "Puppy" and keeps it close at heart both emotionally and physically as he rides for the cause.

The story of Wesley and Michael has inspired us to give back. On Wednesday, September 28th 2022 we are going to donate all profits to Pediatric Cancer Research and Prevention. We hope that this small gesture provides hope to cancer patients, motivation to Michael to continue riding for the cause, and sends love and well wishes to Wesley.
