Team Joe’s is on its way north to the starting line of the 27th Wish-a-Mile 300 benefiting the Wish Kids of the Make a Wish Foundation. Throughout the three-day ride, CEO Rob Casalou and 17 Team Joe’s cyclists will post updates, photos and stories to this blog. They appreciate any words of encouragement and inspiration to push through the trek.
Here is the first post:
Team Joe’s is on it’s way to Traverse City!! The team gathered at MIS Speedway this morning and loaded on buses for the ride north. The weather is perfect and spirits are high. This year, 18 of us are riding the 3-day, 300 mile event and we have 2 riding the 50-mile event on Sunday. We are close to our team goal of raising $50,000 to support our wish kids!! We all say hi to all our friends and colleagues back at St. Joe’s. Please send your prayers for good weather, a strong tailwind and for the safety of all the 850 riders who are riding for wishes.
