Trike-A-Thon Awesomeness... the REAL reason.

It's not about the shirt I stayed up late last night painting for Jake to wear...

It's not about the adorable letters Jake's getting in the mail along with generous sponsor checks 
{thank you!!!}, 
even though they are SO awesome and he looooves getting mail...

It's about helping kids who are AMAZING.  Kids like the boys' cousin Simeon, who was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was in Kindergarten.  He rocked his treatments and kicked cancer to the curb!  And THAT is why we get so excited about the Trike-A-Thon every year.

So it won't be about what's on the front of Jake's shirt tomorrow.  It will be about what's on the back of it, just like it's been on Sam's back for three years in the Trike-A-Thon... a picture of his cousin.
We love you Simeon!
