2007 Wish A Mile

Bike RidingAt the end of July my dad will be doing a 300 mile bike ride for the Make A Wish Foundation. This is such a great event for so many obvious reason, but it will also be an amazing accomplishment for my dad. For those of you who don't know, my dad had gastric bypass surgery 5 years ago and lost more than half of his post surgery body weight in the first 2 years after the surgery. The decision to have surgery came after suffering a heart attack 2 days before Christmas in 1999 and he has done amazingly well. He doesn't work out or anything like that, just watches his food intake. Now he is training on his own for a 300 mile bike ride to take place over 3 days. I find it very inspiring.
