105 Miles to beat Cancer!

One flat tire, one missed turn, 6.5 hours and 105 miles. The ACS Bile-a-Thon was a huge success with the Franke team raising $2,000 to contribute to the $1,500,000 raised by the other 4,000 riders.

This is a terrible disease that affects all of us in some way and it was an honor for me to help and inspire others to contribute while doing something I enjoy...riding my bike.

Wooden on Leadership

John Wooden was arguably the best college basketball coach ever. The records he set at UCLA will never be broken but if you have ever heard his former players speak of him it most always was about leadership off the court rather than on the court that made him so revered.

His model is simple but clearly is an example we should all follow.
