The 2nd Annual Going up with Down Bike Ride

Please join me in this year’s second Annual Going up with Down Bike Ride!

Word Down Syndrome Day 2013

The Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association will be holding the 2nd Annual Going up with Down Bike Ride on March 22nd and will begin and end at Mezzaluna Pizzeria – European Village Palm Coast, FL just like last year.

The ride is in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day.  The event will raise awareness of Down syndrome to the community and we hope to raise enough money to host a bike camp for people with Down syndrome. The Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association  is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. More information and the signup link can be found at the ride website: and for the ride contact; Joyce Jolley (

2013 Tour de Cure – Jacksonville is coming on May 18!

The Pirates ride the Tour de Cure because we are proud to do our part to stop Diabetes. We decided to team up to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because we personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.

I’ll be there again this year. Can you help raise funds for Diabetes?

The 1st Annual Up With Down Charity Bike Ride is on Saturday, March 23rd!

Hey everybody! Please help me get the word out about the Up With Down charity bike ride on Saturday, March 23rd. Closing date for on-line registration (and your shirt) is 3/21. Other than the link above, you will be able to register the morning of the ride from 7 AM (no shirt), first ride at 8. Routes include 20, 62 and 100 mile options. SAG with plenty of stocked rest stops. Mezzaluna’s for lunch! Pizza or Pasta! Fresh like you was a customer! I kill me! They kill me! I don’t know that I have had many first year charity ride lunches to order. As if raising funds for this great organization wasn’t doing good enough, the proceeds of this event go directly to iCan Shine Bike Camp! Check out the work those folks are doing too!

Please consider helping The Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association out even if you can’t make the ride.
