Dover Man’s Mother Plans to Continue His Bike Journey in the Wake of His Death
Remember James Dobson? Chances are, if you ever met James, you never forgot him. Let me try to refresh your memory.
James Dobson, originally from Berwick, Maine, left on October 1, 2018 from Dover on a bike headed for San Diego. James goal was to raise money for CHaD in Hanover. He named his trek, the POSITIVE VIBES TOUR. His goal was to raise at least $10,000 for the hospital.
James had the most positive attitude of anyone I have ever met. His smile was infectious! Unfortunately, while he was biking in Mississippi, he was hit from behind an died instantly. As I've said before, I didn't know James well, however, it was like we were instant friends and I'm sure that's how he made others feel too.
James journey will continue. His Mother, Cindy Dobson, will be leaving on November 14, 2021 in an RV. She will be driving to Mississippi, where James was killed, then biking from there. Cindy will have 1,900 miles to go before she reaches San Diego. She does have someone going with her and help mapping out her route.
Cindy and James have already raised $132,000 for CHaD and Cindy is planning on raising more during her trip.
Cindy is looking for an RV right now, so if you know of anyone who would like to donate one or funds for her trip, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass along Cindy's contact information.
I can't imagine Cindy's pain, but I am so hopeful that this trip will be somewhat healing for her. We will be following Cindy and updating this story from time to time. In the meantime, I've said it before..... Kids Cancer Sucks and so does Texting and Driving. One we have no control over, but the other, we do. Just don't text and drive. It's stupid.
