Breast cancer ride

Yesterday Greg and I and a bunch of great people participated in the 2nd annual "Hank's memorial ride" to benefit breast cancer research.
The Friday before, some of us girls got together to make tutu's and "crowns" to wear throughout the day.
It was a great day! We did get rained on some, but thankfully we didn't get soaked.
Last year we were able to raise around $ 2000,-, this year we raised over $ 3000.-!!
Gestern nahmen Greg, ich und viele Freunde am 2. "Hank's memorial ride"teil. Der Erloes dieser Motorradfahrt geht der Brustkrebs Forschung zugute. 
Am Freitag vor der Fahrt haben wir "Maedels" uns getroffen um Tutu's und "Kronen" zu basteln die wir den ganzen Tag ueber getragen haben. 
Es war ein toller Tag! Es hat zwar teilweise geregnet und wir wurden nass, aber gluecklicherweise war es kein Dauerregen.
Letztes Jahr konnten wir $ 2000.- spenden, dieses Jahr waren es ueber $ 3000.-!
