Hello.  I am excited to be participating in Tour de Fresh, a bicycling event that is aimed at raising funds for a special project - "Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools".  The event is sponsored by the produce industry and is aimed at providing salad bars in schools so that children across the United States have the opportunity to eat healthy lunches.  We will be riding our bicycles from Carmel, CA to Anaheim (the home of Disneyland!) and each rider has made a commitment to raise money for this project.  I have adopted the Peoria School District 150 in Peoria, IL.  They have identified 19 schools that would love to have salad bars.  I need your help to help Peoria School District meet their goal of providing salad bars to all 19 schools.  Please sponsor me for this ride - any amount of money will move me closer to providing Peoria with their salad bars!

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and is becoming an increasing problem among children.  The best way to address obesity is through prevention - and the best preventative measures are to develop healthy lifestyle habits.  Eating is a habit - if we can provide opportunities for children to learn to eat (and enjoy) healthy foods, we have the opportunity to nip obesity in the bud.  Join me in addressing this challenging issue!
