My Story

Last year my brother Nate invited my dad and I to see a movie in theaters.  I only learned about the name of the movie before going in; “The Abolitionists”, but I still had no idea what I was about to see.


Throughout the film, my heart raced. I had tears. It was a powerful documentary about saving children from being sex slaves. I had no idea how devastating this problem is in the world. About 2 million children are being sold to be raped, sometimes up to 8-10 times in one night. Some kids are as young as 10 years old and pregnant. This was all very alarming to me.

It hit me so hard that I wanted to do something about it.


The past couple of years I’ve thought a lot about going on a bicycle tour across the United States from coast to coast. At first, I wanted to do this because I thought, “how cool would it be to say that I rode a bike from coast to coast?” However, earlier this year, I had an idea to go on my bicycle tour for the children being abused as slaves and raise money and awareness for their rescuing and aftercare from my ride.


I have recently started this campaign for Operation Underground Railroad - the nonprofit organization that helps save these kids from sex trafficking and slavery. I have personally donated $350 along with paying for the tour itself, so that you, and others will see my seriousness and passion in doing this. - I will be going on this ride.


My goal is to leave November 3 this year from San Diego, California and ride along what’s called the Southern Tier, and arrive in Jacksonville, Florida on December 17.


I hope that you’ll join me in the fight against slavery for these kids. I also hope that you’ll help spread the word about my campaign, as well as the good that Operation Underground Railroad is doing.


Help me reach my goal of $7,500 by donating to my campaign by the deadline on December 17, 2017 - the day I end my tour in Jacksonville, Florida.

In 1980 I decided to ride my bike from Salt Lake City to Otisco Lake , NY. A few years earlier my sister Mary had died from being in the car with someone who was drinking and driving. She was 21 years old. The previous summer, a bike trip through Jackson hole and Yellowstone inspired me to see our beautiful country by pedaling across it. Your trip is very inspiring to me and I wish you a safe and blessed journey. The people I met on that trip were so kind and giving. I'm sure you'll experience

More than happy to donate to a cause like this. I'd donate a case of .22 ammo too if it would be used right between the eyes of any S.O.B. that would rape or traffic a child.
