The 2016 Southwest Challenge, last weekend, sure lived up to it's name. With some rain in the morning, the day cleared and left all of us with extremely heavy winds to battle for most of the ride. That didn't deter our riders though as we all tried to work together, to get home in one piece. In the end, all was worth the effort as we enjoyed an excellent meal and the prizes giveaway. Despite the lower turnout due to the weather, we collectively raised over $24,000! Absolutely amazing! It is just great that cyclist came come together to make a difference in a sick child's life? I want to firstly thank our sponsors who financially supported us and believed in the cause, as well as all the volunteers who gave of their time to assist us on this trying day. But I must thank too, all the riders who raised the funds and graciously came on such an inclement day, some even from afar, to put in an extraordinary effort for such a worthy cause. You guys/ gals rock!
