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.
