Welcome to 2015 Pedal for Peds

The 6th annual Pedal for Peds to benefit UNC Pediatric Oncology/ Hematology, held yesterday, was a wonderful success. Bob, head of "Team Ella" continued to lead the team with the most funds raised. And, yes, Bob and 4 more team members did ride bikes in the rain yesterday.

Since the inception of this event, we had a shared wish that there be a part of these activities that specifically honored the patients - the children who bring us joy and sadness through this journey...but who teach us life lessons.

So yesterday, we had a spectacular balloon release to honor the children. (See pictures above). Before the release, below is the "speech" I shared with the crowd, to honor the children and to remind us of why we participate.

Many thanks to all of you for continuing to love, support and care for the children. A special thanks to Julie Blatt for her leadership of this event.

I honor the children today

Children who maintained their positive spirit through weeks, months and years of chemo therapy
Children who illustrated their strength by enduring the hours and days of pain after surgeries

I honor the children today
Children who teased and laughed with the doctors, nurses and fellow patients with a port in their chest
Children who had to learn in hospital classrooms away from their school friends while learning about the science of blood counts, kidney function and anatomy.
Children who developed patience while waiting for the results of their scans

I honor the children today.
Children who experienced the blessings of skilled doctors and caring nurses
Children who felt the love of family and friends.

And I honor my little girl, Eleanor, for sharing these lessons with her Mom, Dad and the rest of her family.
I thank you…for the children.
