Tonight, I went to the kickoff party for the Mamma Jamma Ride to Leave Breast Cancer Behind, and I met the most amazing little girl. Her name is Ella. She is six years old, and this is her third year to do the Mamma Jamma Ride.
Last year and the year before, Ella rode tandem with her mother. This year, she is riding solo. Last year, Ella raised over $1300 working a lemonade stand along Shoal Creek Boulevard. This year, her goal is to raise $2000.
I don’t know how this little thing got so invested in this ride, but I’m guessing there is a story we need to hear. I asked Ella to send me her donation page and the link to the blog her mother has set up for her training and efforts towards this ride. When I hear from her, I’m going to share her page and that blog with you.
Ella stole my heart. She looked so cute walking around in her too big Mamma Jamma jersey. I had no idea until I started talking to her that she was a rider.
I can’t wait to introduce you to Ella.
I'm sorry I missed seeing you tonight Taline!! I met Ella last year, and she is amazing. I first saw her on a TV interview. She is quite the amazing young lady. Hope you are doing well!
Alice, I'm sorry I missed you too! This ride is full of lots of amazing people, including you! I'm so thankful to get to be a part of it.
