Pedal for Pink

Summer 2021

This summer, Kevin and his daughter, 9-year-old Abby, embarked on a journey, cross country, 4,200 miles, from Seattle to Maine. They pedaled for Pink. Fueled by extra love and passion for this trip as they are navigating their wife and mother Jennifer’s breast cancer diagnosis.

“Every day is a new day”, said Jennifer when talking to Executive Director of TETWP, Heidi Sherratt when she and Kevin sat down to share their story. Knowing that every day is a new day, opens a world of positivity and hope whether you’re biking across the country or battling breast cancer. In a joint effort with the Sanderfords, Gunnison TETWP spread awareness, shared inspiration, and raised money on a national scale to support other cancer patients and their families in our community. 

Kevin and Abby left their home in Crested Butte, CO on Friday, June 4th to travel to their starting line in Anacortes, Washington. They begin pedaling for Pink on Monday, June 7th, 2021.  They completed their journey in Bar Harbor, Maine on August 15th, 2021.

During their journey across America, Gunnison TETWP followed them closely and shared their journey right here, on Facebook @GunnisonTETWP, and on Instagram @gunnisontetwp.

Miles traveled: 4,249
Total hours pedaled: 339 hours and 41 minutes
