In July, my daughter Olivia and I will be taking part in the “MINI Takes the States” rally that travels around the US. It begins in Georgia, proceeds north to Baltimore, across to Detroit and then west to Minneapolis, Sturgis, Park City, Las Vegas and ends in Palm Springs, California.
The route will take two weeks and cover nearly 10,000 km (one way!). We’re going to do ½ the route, from Atlanta to Detroit so we don’t miss too many of David’s baseball games.
Over 1,000 MINI Coopers will participate in the rally. We’ll be in the coolest one. J
This will be an amazing experience for us, and I hope we build life-long memories that Olivia and I can share. Having this time with her, just before she enters those strange teenage years, is priceless.
We’ve been very blessed and are fortunate to do a lot for others now. Our original intention was to have you “ride with us” as we raised money to support a charity.
However, I’ve made a significant charitable commitment this year to the Community Foundation of Mississauga that I will be sharing with you over the summer. It’s a very big deal and I will need your full support for its success. I know you’re going to love the idea and I’m really looking forward to announcing it soon!
In the meantime, please wish Olivia and me luck as we Take the States!
