Team Strong Heart mission event in Boulder CO - May 16-17, 2010

As Team Strong Heart crew and rider are preparing its mission close to its final stage before heading to the race start (Race Across America 2010), co-crew chief, Michelle Pearl, organized a mission fundraising event last weekend -- this time, in the Heart of the Race Across America -- its headquarter -- in Boulder, CO.

Michelle gathered all the donated items from her friends and local CO businesses (bike shops, band, restaurants, hotels, spas, bakeries, etc. etc.), as well as Team Storng Heart sponsors from MN, and raised $2,100+ on Sat. night. RAAM president and CEO attended the event, pumped up our team and supporters, and praised all the efforts we have done for Camp Odayin charity mission. On behalf of Team Strong Heart, I invited the RAAM organizer to visit Minnesota this fall and give us a recap of RAAM 2010 and RAAM history.

Counting down 22 days to start, Team Strong Heart has many tasks ahead before the race start. As Eric Kenny, the Team Strong Heart 4th year coach advises -- obstacles usually happen when you take your eyes off from the goal -- So we stay focused.
