Hey guys,

How are my sixth and seventh graders doing? Every time I see you guys I'm blown away by how much you've grown. Remember, with your position comes great responsibility. Our Wheels for Ed kids, third through fifth grade, are looking up to you and the example you set. Always remember that, but be especially mindful of this position when times get tough.

This might be one of those times. It's cold, it's dark, and it's difficult to get out of bed. I know, even I just want to stay in bed some mornings. But I don't. I get up and I go to work to set an example for you. I need you to do the same for my Wheels for Ed kids, understood?

When you get tired and you all you want to do is lay in bed, remember our PROMISE, and remember that you're not alone. We're in this together.

Have a great week and hold the hometown down for me.

Your friend,
