What a GREAT day of fun we had at Knoebels yesterday! Early Thursday we filled a bus (THANK YOU JZ Tours) wiith littles that are on the waiting list with Big Brother/Big Sister of the Bridge. The idea: give kids on the waiting list a taste of what the mentoring program is all about.
Right after lunch, we let everyone loose at America's largest free admission amusement park. It's Friday morning, and I'm still recovering!!!
That's my new buddy Dylan as we started our trip up The Flume.
I didn't get the memo about bringing a towel.
We helped celebrate the Twister rollercoaster's 15th birthday...by screaming & yelling.
I would've been lost without these 2...Liz and Pilar from BBBS!
Alan Stout from BBBS presented my boss OD and I with a few tokens of his appreciation.
There are SO MANY kids just like the littles we had on this trip waiting for a match with BBBS. That is why there is such a desperate need for volunteers to join the mentoring program. Becoming a Big Brother has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. And I promise it will have the same impact on you!
I can't urge you enough to get involved with this program. A few short hours a month can have an amazing effect on a young kid's life here in NEPA.

Sunday, August 3rd, is the 6th Annual Endure Bike ride to benefit the American Cancer Society. This is one of my favorite rides of the year for a number of reasons. It's well organized, it's in my backyard in the Back Mountain, AND part of the ride includes Wyoming Avenue from Kingston to 8th Street!
14 million cancer survivors are celebrating birthdays this year because of your help. Who will YOU endure for?
