-founded by my brother-in-law and friend
Adventures For The Cure (AFC) is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, USA Cycling Club, and USA Triathlon Club that exists to empower people to use what they love to raise money and awareness for charitable causes that are important to them. AFC focuses on using a love of cycling to accomplish this task, but we believe that any gift or talent can be used to help others and to make a positive change in the world and we fully encourage others to do so!
In particular, AFC frequently focuses on helping children with diabetes through the Extreme Weekend For Children With Diabetes Camp as well as Kupenda for the Children, an organization that helps children with disabilities in Kenya. Through all of our efforts, we hope to inspire others to live healthy lifestyles and to adventure beyond their perceived limits, because ANYTH!NG Is Possible
Kupenda For the Children- http://www.kupenda.org/
Kupenda ("to love" in Kiswahili) for the Children is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt Christian-based organization that exists to meet the needs of children with disabilities. Ultimately the goal is that these children will feel that they are loved and accepted.

I know some folks were asking about the link for things to do to give back. I'm not sure if anyone wanted this one or not but it's threadsoflove.org. You can find it here http://www.threadsoflove.org/. Both of my babies had issues at birth so this is one that is close to my heart. They do several different things to help families with NICU babies and families with stillborn babies. There are chapters all over the USA and I'm sure if there isn't one close to where someone is they could start one. Hope this helps anyone who is interested :0)
