|Welcome to John Gagnon's
Created to track my progress to completing the 2006 Trans-NH 250 Bike Ride
250 miles from the NH/Canadian border to Portsmouth, NH over three days (June 23-25)
My personal participation is dedicated to my daughter,
Noelle Gagnon's, memory
Noelle Marie Gagnon
12/28/1984 - 05/19/1996
I completed all but 19 of the 250 mile ride and surprised myself in the process!
Welcome to my website dedicated to my daughter, Noelle Gagnon. This website was created to log my plans and challenges to train for the 2006 19th Annual Firefighters Trans-NH Bike Ride benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Hampshire. I personally participated in this ride in memory of my daughter, Noelle, who died from muscular dystrophy on May 19, 1996. I asked friends, family and those who have known or lives have been touched in some manner by Noelle and/or Muscular Dystrophy to make a donation to MDA in her memory through my efforts to complete this ride and the response was incredible.
