My Name is Rhonda and I am from Houston. Primarily, I am a mom and wife to a beautiful family that I can't believe I'm lucky enough to have. Aside from that most important role, I am an avid mountain bike racer who travels nationally and internationally for the sport. I discovered mountain bike racing later in life than most, and much to my surprise, it has helped me to be a happier, healthier person for myself and my loved ones. It has turned from a hobby into my mental and physical therapy, the thing that keeps me grounded and a peace. It has also provided me with a forum to motivate and inspire others.
Recently I qualified for a world class race in Leadville, Colorado - the Leadville 100 mile mountain bike race, and participating would be both a dream and a financial burden. I've always ensured that my sport doesn't take away from my familial responsibilities. Unfortunately, this race is quite expensive. I would be exceedingly grateful if anyone could help by donating or spreading the word so that I can reach my goal. This race brings much notoriety to my small but mighty city in Northern Ontario, my family and anyone who helps donate. All donations will be well represented by me at the event. Aside from my own financial contribution, I will ensure that I continue to promote health and wellness as a means of finding a new and better path in life.
