Mission in Motion cycling donates $2,100.00 to Lourdes Breast Cancer mammography unit!

December 31, 2014

On behalf of the Mission in Motion Cycling Team, I am happy to report a donation has been mailed today for $2100.00.  The team had a blast training and racing in events all over New York, PA & beyond raising awareness for breast cancer!  


Our uniforms are bright and colorful and everywhere we go, people ask us what Lourdes Mission in Motion is, and we are so proud to tell them about the wonderful services that Lourdes provides to women in need of breast cancer screening.  What an amazing community we have!

Response form Lourdes!
Wow! On behalf of Mission in Motion Mobile Mammography and Lourdes Hospital, I would like to thank you for your generosity and continued support with your commitment to helping us bring mammography to women who would not have had testing because of either fear or lack of fund.
If there is anything we can ever do for you please don’t hesitate to ask!
Have an awesome and healthy New Year!

Sincerely,
Laurie

Victor Apple Farm Cyclocross Race - a Race Report from Jackie

Here is a race report from Jackie Hendrickson after today's Victor Apple Farm Cyclocross Race! Congrats Jackie!

I was the only MIM in attendance.  The roster was heavy with Bike Loft East and Park Ave Bike Racers.  It was also the last race in the NY State Cyclocross Championship Series, so the stakes we high!

The course was snow covered and muddy, making things worrisome for the race organizer. He shortened to course to only a mere 2 muddy miles.  There were more hairpin turns than I've ever seen!  There were also 3 long low grade climbs that started out easy enough, until the life sapping 4th, 5th or even 6th lap.  The hole shot through the barn and the slog through the snow pile were great fun!


So...I started in middle of the pack, but rather than falling off, I gained on women each lap.  I overtook Karla Eisch first, no easy feat as she is a power house.  I worked my way past 2 other Cat 3 women and a few Cat 4's.  I ended up just off the podium by less than a minute, 4th place, for like the 4th time this year!  It was beautifully warm out so I was able to race in shorts.  Bad idea after the fact since muddy legs were an issue later on.  The biggest success though was being approached by Park Ave riders asking how to be apart of our awesome team!
