Posted on September 22, 2014We met our increased goal on the 18th. So we raised it again. And we met it again yesterday. So we raised it one more time with nine days left on the fundraiser.
Rob's birthday was Friday. He would have been 27. The Clearwater Police, who were particularly helpful to our family during the case, were scheduled to walk in their local MADD walk on his birthday. It was postponed due to rain but they plan to wear ribbons and walk in honor of Rob and Hilary when the walk is rescheduled.
Yesterday marked the day that Hilary passed away after being on life support for 19 days. We ask that you keep her family and friends in your thoughts.
We can't thank everyone enough for your support on this project's first fundraiser. As we wind down, please feel free to share this page and our Facebook page with anyone who you feel may be interested in supporting us or following along. Although we haven't met all of you personally, know that you hold a special place in our hearts for what you've done here. Thank you.

Posted on September 7, 2014Since we had exceeded our original goal so quickly, we decided to double it. What can I say? We are optimists. And now, we are nearly 75% of the way to this new goal. Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated. It means so much to us.
Saturday morning we held the first of what we plan to be an annual event. 17 of our friends and family came out to ride 11 miles and get together for lunch. Although Rob would have had a good laugh at how short our ride was and the fact that the wheel on Rebecca's bike has been on backwards for many years (fixed before the ride!), we know he would have been so proud just to have everyone out together riding. There were people who hadn't ridden in years, a cousin who bought a bike just that morning, and a people wearing helmets who didn't normally. We are thrilled at what we consider an extremely successful day. Photos can be viewed on the Lemon Road Machine Project Facebook page.
