The folks at NDC surprised me with a welcome home cake! Had an extremely busy work schedule my first week back in the office, but it was terrific to finally return and get reconnected.
Looking forward to NASH Bash this Saturday, 29 September at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville to not only celebrate my return but National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Rally Kids and I welcome your support for the inaugural Rally Around the World for Childhood Cancer Research, which will take place July – September 2012 as a solo, around-the-world motorcycle ride to support the Rally’s mission of empowering volunteers to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research.
Every school day, two classrooms of children, about 46, are diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is the #1 disease killer of kids ages 0-15 in the US! With your help, we expect to ride 25,000 miles and raise more than $250,000 to support the Rally Foundation in its quest to fund childhood cancer research projects…that’s why I’m driven to help these kids
In 2002, as a testicular cancer survivor and in celebration of my 10thanniversary of being cancer-free, I made a solo bicycle trek from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL covering 3,000 miles in 35 days raising money for the American Cancer Society.
Rally Around the World will mark my upcoming 20th anniversary of being cancer free. The struggles these children endure reach far beyond the personal challenges I faced when fighting cancer and will face on an around-the-world motorcycle ride.
Rally Around the World - 2012
Rally Around the World Route
For now, the route is rather loosely planned to leave Nashville, TN around July 28, then ride to Anchorage, Alaska. From Anchorage I will air-freight my motorcycle and gear to Seoul, South Korea, then take a ferry up to Vladivostok, Russia. From there, the plan is to follow the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia, into Belarus, then Poland and Western Europe. Will ferry across the English Channel and then the Irish Sea, and fly from Ireland to Halifax, Nova Scotia. From there, the route will run south and return to Nashville, probably in the first week of September and just in time to celebrate National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The entire trip will be about 15,000 road miles and a complete circumnavigation of the world of 25,000 miles…just a short trip around the block I say!!
