    Hello Doug!

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog today! I wanted to let you and your cycling group at the University of Memphis know about an exciting new event in Memphis. It’s the St. Jude Give thanks. Ride. benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Bike lovers and riders of all ages will unite in the fight against childhood cancer with an exciting, 24-hour, team-relay cycling event in downtown Memphis. It’s a cycling event unlike any other in the Mid-South area!

    Tom Lee Park will be the center of great food, fun activities and live music to rev up cyclists as they ride along the mighty Mississippi River. For more details and registration information, visit and feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
