Support Kat's Most Excellent Adventure!!
It's that time of year again when I dust off my bike and start my training and fundraising for Breathe California of Sacramento Emigrant Trails - The Clean Air and Healthy Lungs People. We had such a great time in Napa last year that the Emigrant Trails Bike Trek will take place there again this September! We ill camp for two nights and ride at least 100 miles over three days.
If you are asking yourselves why I'm going on this 3 day biking experience that prevents me from walking properly for about a week afterwards yet again, well...I'm crazy. On top of that, however, I am riding to raise money for Breathe California to help eliminate lung disease, manage childhood asthma, eliminate teenage smoking and help improve air quality in the Sacramento region.
You can be part of the party and you don't even have to get your bike out. Heck, you don't even have to get off the couch to make a difference! By making a tax deductible donation, you are helping the over 45,000 children who suffer from asthma in our region.
A few more startling facts:

Thanks in advance for your support, and just know that on the Monday after the ride, I'll be doing the morning show on the Eagle standing up..... ouch!!!
