LLS Volunteer

Marmora, NJ

My 9 year old son Ryland Bricker is a BMX racer. He started last year mid way through the season. We found out that the USA BMX Foundation does a fundraising campaign called the Race for Life that benefits the LLS. He really wanted to get involved to help so he ended up being the top fundraiser in the country in 2018 raising $7,066. He set his goals higher for 2019 and really dedicated himself to it asking for donations instead of birthday presents, sat outside local businesses with a bucket collecting money & other stuff as well.

He ended up raising $21,221. Not only was he the top fundraiser again in 2019 he was the highest fundraising individual ever in the 38 years that this has been going on since 1981. He has set a goal for 2020 of $21,733 so his total for the last 3 years will be $50,000 raised for the LLS.
