My name is Gary Petersen. Three years ago, my wife Kathie and I visited St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. We were overcome with emotion as we saw the tremendous work being done to save young lives and bless the lives of their families. We made a commitment to do what we could to help. This year we want to do more.
Welcome to the "Hearts of the Heartland" fundraising page for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
During the months of September and October 2022 I will be riding a bicycle (unsupported) from the Canadian border in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico in Mississippi. That's about 1,600 miles give or take. I'm old, overweight and out of shape so you should be willing to pay good money to see that. You can follow my training (if any), preparations (sort of) and the ride itself on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at Gary R Petersen. It's obvious that I really need your support and encouragement so please donate. Any amount large or small will be appreciated by me but more importantly by children and their families who actually need the help and encouragement.
As further incentive, Kathie and I will match the first $10,000 donated. THERE IS NO NEED TO WAIT FOR THE RIDE! DONATE TODAY!! It means the world to so many young people and their families.
