Kelly O'Keefe wanted to do something big--really big--for the people and causes he cares about most. So he decided to get out his bike and make a once-in-a-lifetime trek across the country with the goal of raising funds for charity.
"Kelly's Ride for 5" is raising money for: NOMV, World Vets, ALS Association, The V Foundation for Cancer Research, and Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance.
Kelly has been posting his progress on his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/KellysRidefor5 There he posts maps of his rides, pictures and videos of all the amazing people he meets along the way, and reasons for his ride.
Today's post reads: ￼Happy Friday to everyone out there in the veterinary and animal lover world! Just a thought for everyone to hold onto going into the weekend. You all make the world a better place every day because of your passion and love for our best friends. Sometimes, it is easy to lose sight of the difference you’re making, but there is a tremendous difference and affect on this world that you have on a daily basis. I am only too honored￼￼￼ ￼ to be able to bring awareness to your importance and Hope to our industry to make it even that much better. Thank you again for all you do on a daily basis!
