WELCOME TO OUR SEE THURSDAY RIDE - Road to Russia FUNDRAISER PAGE!
We'd like to introduce ourselves. Thursday Gervais & Denile Hill. Nice to meet you. We are challenging ourselves on and off the course to help raise funds to support the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the work they do to help the 73 million Americans at risk for kidney disease, the 26 million Americans living with chronic kidney disease, the 93,000 people on the kidney transplant list, and those who care for and about them.
We are heading to Russia July - August 2017 to compete in the Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme. Thursday has agreed to race her bike 5732 miles in 24 days (that's an average of 230 miles per day) to raise money for NKF. Denile has ageed to travel with Thursday as her support manager. In Fall 2015 Denile received a life saving kidney transplant at University Hospital in Cincinnati, OH. after 12 years of kidney dialysis. Without the work of NKF and a transplant Denile would not be able to make this journey to Russia.
Cycling has been a constant source of fitness & joy in both our lives. Cycling has seen us through dark times and helped both of us regain and maintain our health. Using cycling as a platform to raise money for the National Kidney Foundation is a natural fit.
NKF is leading the pace group in the fight against kidney disease and we are excited to join the pack! Will you join us by making a donation or challenging yourself too?
Every dollar counts, and we would be grateful for your support to help fight kidney disease! Be sure to follow our progress at www.thursdaygervais.com
