Dear Fellow Tribers!
I’ve decided to run the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon 11/4/18 with Team for Kids and I am asking for your support of their inspiring mission. Team for Kids is a team of adult runners who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners youth programs. These programs empower youth development and encourage healthy habits via running and character-building programs across the country.
Your giving helps New York Road Runners youth programs:
Serve 267,000 students nationwide – including 134,000 in New York City’s five boroughs – through free NYRR youth running programs, events, and resources.
Engage students in long-term athlete development (LTAD), a lifelong journey that guides an individual’s experience in sports and physical activity to develop healthy minds and bodies for life.
Help build the next generation of athletes by supporting coaches, educators, and fitness leaders with the tools they need to make a difference.
Whether you are a runner, have worked with children, or have kids yourself, I hope you will join me to further this great cause!
See you at the finish line!
Last Weekend in NYC, was all about coming together to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. Our own Yanina Livingston, took this on and organized quite a weekend for JSS Tribe members. On Saturday, Yanina and 20 JSS Tribe members ran the Brooklyn Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon together. On Sunday, Lisa Wichman, Shari Rosenberg, Jamie Schneider, Kate Flynn, Tracey Paulsen and Monica Kalfur walked the Avon39 TOGETHER! While they were walking, Yanina and a bunch of JSS Tribe members were in the studio for a very ride that only our fearless leader could make so special for everyone involved. After the ride, the riders went over to cheer on the walkers as they finished their walk. One Peloton at its finest.
The JSS Tribe raised over $1,000 Dollars and divided 100% of the funds raised among the 6 Avon39 Tribe Members who walked together.
Congratulations to Yanina for a very successful, amazing, inspiring event!
Yanina recapped her amazing weekend in this note below. Thought you’d all enjoy:
On October 22nd, Kim Hydorn (#gooniesgirl) will be riding for 4 1/2 hours to raise money for the CAF (Challenged Athletes Foundation).

I am a two time breast cancer survivor from the Boston area. My last recurrence was this past May and resulted in a double mastectomy. All went very well with my recovery and I’m beyond thrilled to be healthy again.
Can’t tell you how sorry I am to be missing out on the 10/15 JSS Tribe Ride in support of the Avon 39 team but I have purchased a shirt from the JSS Tribe Pink Ribbon Collection so I’ll definitely be there in spirit. Physically I’ll be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Concord, NH that day. I have done this walk annually since 2011 to not only celebrate my survival but to help the American Cancer Society ensure others are able to do the same. If you are interested in checking out this event or making a donation my personal page is below. I will be thinking of the Avon 39 team as I walk among a sea of pink knowing we are all doing our part to help kick this cancer’s ass. Cross your fingers for good weather in NH—it has snowed on us in the past! Thanks, #MrsSunshine
Riding the Bike MS – Again!
Can’t believe it’s that time of year already! Every year I swear it will be my last ride. But then training time arrives and I begin to think about those like my sister, Carol, who continue to live with MS. Carol and those like her inspire me to ride year after year. She was diagnosed over 25 years ago and continues to lead a very full life with a positive, upbeat attitude. I am proud to be her sister and I am once again dedicating this ride to her.
Why You Should Sponsor Me
Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from the MS Bike Tour to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can fight this disease by simply riding a bike, because we have chosen to help thousands of people through a contribution to the MS Bike Tour, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, “You have MS.”
Please help by making a donation. Thank you for your support!
I will be doing 4 rides this Sunday for Mitochondrial Awareness Week which is a cause very important and close to my heart because my daughter has a mitochondrial disease.
Hi JSS Tribe! I am going to be riding in the NYC Studio on Sunday 9/24 for Mitochondrial Awareness Week and for my 150th ride.!!! After 8 years of searching for answers my daughter, Sydney , was finally diagnosed with a mitochondrial disease. Mitochondrial diseases occur when the mitochondria in a person’s cells cannot convert food into life sustaining energy. Sydney is now 25 and is one of 8 people in the world that have been identified with her specific mito disease
which affects her vision, speech, walking and balance. I am going to ride at 9:30am with Jenn for HOPE, at 10:30 am with Jenn for ENERGY(150th!!!) and then a 3rd ride for LIFE and a 4th ride for A CURE. Please join me in the studio or at home as we ride for Sydney and the many others with this devastating disease who can’t!
“YOU’VE GOT THE ENERGY…WE NEED THE CURE.”
