Kevin Record takes cycling to another level. He’s tackled seven ultimate adventures to date, including biking across the United States three times and Europe twice. For his latest adventure, Kevin felt compelled to add meaning to his miles by biking across Ireland and Iceland in honor of his student, Marshall Fisher, who passed away in 2018 from osteosarcoma.
“Marshall was a student at Leon High School where I’m the tennis coach and journalism teacher.” said Kevin. “He loved tennis. He was even my honorary tennis coach in the spring of 2018. He is, and always will be, a life-changing inspiration for me.”
By the end of his journey, Kevin had clocked in close to 2,500 miles and raised more than $4,500 (and counting) for childhood cancer research!
“I chose Iceland and Ireland because they’re on my bucket list,” said Kevin. “I biked around the entire Ring Road in Iceland in a clockwise direction, then biked the perimeter of Ireland in a counterclockwise direction to represent the circle of life.”
Kevin’s close friend, Suzanne Jarvis, participates in the CureSearch Ultimate Hike every year, and she inspired him to turn his cycling trip into a CureSearch Gold event. Gold events are unique CureSearch fundraisers started by supporters to raise money for CureSearch’s next-generation research funding.
“Cancer is a wicked foe. It knows no boundaries and must be stopped, especially when it comes to children,” he said. “We must do everything in our power to conquer this illness. Supporting CureSearch helps the kids directly. I am ALL IN. I hope you will be too.”
