Hi, everyone! Kevin here. I have some great news! I've been in touch with the American Cancer Society to see about getting this set up to be something more than a simple motorcycle trip. Kraig and I have been hesitant to post about this side of things because we didn't want to get in trouble for using the society's name without their permission, but after working with them a little I feel confident enough to make it public. The American Cancer Society is currently working to get us the necessary logos and signage that we'll be using throughout the process. I'm very much looking forward to working with them. We'll be taking donations beginning now through our GoFundMe page (the link is in the top right corner of the page) from now until the end of August. At the end of August, we will donate the funds that we've earned to our local Relay For Life. While we will be on the other side of the country during the relay itself, The American Cancer Society representative that I spoke to assured me that wouldn't be a problem. If you'd like to participate in a relay yourself (there are tons all around the country) or if you'd like to learn more about it, you can go to this page: http://www.relayforlife.org/learn/index

EDIT: After working with the American Cancer Society a little more, it looks like we'll need to set up a separate website for donations to them. While we work on that, please refrain from donating to the cancer fund through the GoFundMe link. We'll be leaving that link up for anyone that wants to help out with operating costs, but that fund won't be going towards cancer. Thanks!

EDIT 2: I've got our donation page set up through the American Cancer Society. As you can see on the right side of the page, there are two donation links. If you use the top link to donate, all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. If you donate to the bottom one, we'll be using those funds to help us cover operating costs (e.g. gas, food, etc.). If we earn more money for operating costs than we use, we'll be putting the excess towards the American Cancer Society.
