Benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults

Dear Loveland Magazine Readers,

We are doing a fundraiser on Saturday, January 9 at 10:30 AM at Power Ryde for our friend, Mackenzie Johnson, who is running 4000 miles across the country this summer in 49 days with 29 other runners to benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (ages 15 – 39).  We are asking for a $20 minimum donation with all proceeds benefitting the Ulman Cancer Fund (

Here is the link to sign up for the ryde:

New ryders (who haven’t been to Power Ryde before) can fill out a waiver online so they don’t need to fill out a paper waiver the day of the event.

Mackenzie is a resident of Loveland, having graduated from Loveland High School in 2014.  While there she was Captain of the XC team and their top female runner.  She also ran track and played soccer for Loveland.  She currently is a Sophomore in the Honors College at the University of South Carolina.  In SC she is also a group fitness instructor and coaches the local Girls on the Run.

We will also have a collection jar on our front desk, announce the fundraiser after classes and post the fundraiser on Facebook.  Feel free to share any or all of this information since the fundraiser is less than a month away.

On a side note, we are doing another fundraiser on Saturday, January 23, for the Loveland Breakfast Club (which falls under the Loveland Food Pantry) that provides breakfast for underprivileged children.  Lauren Aiello is spearheading that effort.  And tentatively on February 6 we are doing a fundraiser for JDRF (details still being worked out).
