This September, the Miller Family Homes team took part in the Great Cycle Challenge in efforts to raise $1,000 for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund. Pediatric cancer kills 38 children in the United States weekly. More than 15,700 children are diagnosed yearly.
We surpassed our initial goal and raised $1605.56 and cycled 404.80 miles.
We hoped to raise awareness for these kids and help provide funds to develop treatments and a cure for cancer. Our three cyclists individually raised at least $500.00 and received their fundraising cycling jerseys. Without their perseverance, we couldn’t have done it without them. The rest of our team wore branded cyclings t-shirts to promote the fundraiser.
Thank you to everyone who donated to our cause, shared our posts and cycled with us. We couldn’t have done it without you!

The Great Cycle Challenge Team Statements:
Andrew, Estimator: Cycling is one of my favorite hobbies. I rode a lot in high school and even raced a bit with my dad. I learned about this challenge through a coworker. I’m passionate about helping kids with cancer. Thank you for your support this September.
Clint, President: I’m proud of what everyone accomplished! Thank you to everyone who donated.
Dinah, Controller: I started riding in the Great Cycle Challenge in 2016 only to find out later that year that I had breast cancer. Cancer is a scary word as an adult, but worse if you hear it when your doctor is talking about your child or grandchild. I’m happy to say, I’m cancer free. I’d like for us to erase this word from existence. Help us fight to find a cure!
Elise, Marketing Specialist: I’m riding in memory of my Aunt Darlene who passed away from breast cancer and her husband Chip who has lung and throat cancer. I recently learned another family member has Lymphoma. Cancer gets a big thumbs down from me. Thank you to all my family members who donated.
