Welcome to My Personal Page

“I am riding because I want to raise funds and shine a light on the 16 million American children who struggle with hunger every day.  To me– this is unconscionable.  America can’t be great without well-nourished kids – so let’s take care of them! 

When I was a teen – I went on a long (2,000 mile) bike ride organized by American Youth Hostels and had a blast.  Wanted to ride for the rest of my life.  Then I started cooking, opening restaurants, TV, radio, husband, kids, blah, blah, blah and well, I haven’t been on a bike since.  When I learned Share Our Strength was doing a Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry ride- how could I resist – a sport I loved PLUS my favorite charity?  I bought a bike on Craig’s List and started training – not to be trite but actually, you don’t forget - it’s like riding a bicycle! Well, I may have forgotten how sore your butt gets on that little seat….. or maybe it hurts a tiny bit more than 40 years ago?  No matter – I’ll do anything for those hungry kids.    

Please support my ride with whatever donation you can make to Share Our Strength and I promise we will put your money to good use in connecting struggling kids with nutritious food. And I will be forever grateful to you for the support!
