We Are Happy To Bring You...Pablove Across America

We are so so so happy to f i n a l l y announce the Pablove Across America ride. Countless people have helped us get here. I will write plenty about the specific efforts of Dangerbird, Filter, Sram, Felt Bikes and others in the coming days. Today's main event is to reveal the details of our new venture.

This is our first major push to expand the Pablove Foundation. You have all been incredibly supportive tin the past 16 months. Today, we ask that you continue your support of our efforts to help kids with cancer. Please spread the word FAR and WIDE. Our goal is to raise $1 million as my friend and cycling coach Rick Babington ride from St Augustine FL to Pablo's grave at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills here in Los Angeles.

The beginning of the PAA story is on the video with Lance Armstrong and I. The rest of it—every little detail—is on the brand new Pablove Foundation website, which launched a few minutes ago. (You may have to clear the cache in your web browser for it to appear.)

We have three specific requests to make:

• Embed the Pablove Across America website widget on your Facebook page, blog, website, or wherever.

• Spread the above video FAR and WIDE

• Invite as many people as you can think of to check out the Pablove Foundation site, and ask them to get involved. And to pass it on to their friends.

Wow. Am I selling Kool-Aid here? No, something far more important. Today is the day we are taking the big, important step to further Pablo's legacy of love and boundless energy. To grow the Pablove Foundation and grow our coffers so we can help children who have cancer—and their families—to have a better time in their treatment experience.

I am Danica Weinmann's youngest sister and I have been obsessed with your story for many months. I check the blog so many times a day, it's actually embarrassing! Your family and Pablo have truly changed my life and the way I see the world. After everything you have been through, I could never bring myself to comment. I've wanted to so, so many times, but I couldn't find the words. But now I have found some: THE NEW PABLOVE SITE IS AWESOME!!! So, SO cool!! I couldn't help but congratulate you. I just donated and I have never been more excited to contribute to a cause before! You guys rock. Love and light!

Congratulations JoAnn and Jeff!! What a remarkable tribute to your beautiful little boy.

We're honored to share the launch of PAA, as well as the new Pablove Foundation website. Our 15-year-old has become a P-Love fan on Facebook, and we are indeed feeling the momentum here in our home, as the 1-month count down begins today!!

Pablo's fighting spirit rides on... while changing the lives of each heroic victim and their families.

Our heartfelt love to you both, and to Grady... always.

The Hearnes

Best of luck on your ride.

I took on a very similar challenge last summer in the opposite direction (Disneyland to Walt Disney World).

Overall, it was not as hard as I had feared, but a couple of days were harder than I ever imagined they would be.

Have an awesome journey.
