A Lot Is Riding on This!

Dear friends and family,
We are all affected by cancer in some way. After our son, Douglas, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Stage II, at age 16 in December of 2013,  we partnered with our amazing health team at Dana-Farer Cancer Institute / Jimmy-Fund Clinic for his treatment and care and are very blessed to report he not only tolerated all his treatments with grace and courage, but that it was a great success with a clear Pet scan! He looks like it never happened! We continue with check-ups at the Jimmy Fund clinic and he even grew after chemo! He is now 6 ft 3 inches, enjoying his senior year at South Kingstown High School and has been accepted at Hartford University in their Prosthetic program, the University of New England in their Occupational Therapy program and waiting on URI for their decision, before he makes his decision. He is working at Yagoo Ski resort at the snow tubing park near our home. He is looking forward to baseball this spring and working at Del's at the beach this summer. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and a desire to express it by giving back as a PMC rider this summer.
Last year Douglas was linked as a " Pedal Partner" hero for a team of riders of the PMC called Brooklyn Love and I am so excited to join them this year! Douglas and Kaitlin will cheer us on from water stops as we ride the 200 miles!
Today I've committed to raising money for cancer research by riding in the 2015 Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). On the first weekend in August, I will join 5,500 cyclists in the PMC ride, an annual bike-a-thon that raises money for research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston.
I hope I can count on your support!
The PMC raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country, $455 million since 1980 and $41 million last year alone! This success is the result of a lot of people riding for, and caring about, a cure. And because every penny matters, 100 percent of your donation goes to DFCI.
I've made a personal commitment to ride and raise $4,500. So I hope you can help me achieve this significant goal.
Every donation brings us closer by the mile.
All my love and thanks,
Melanie Barlow

Important Rule Change for the 2014 Season: Residency and School Attendance Eligibility

In an effort to accommodate Little Leaguers® playing with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League® recently amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2013. Read the full text of the new rule here

In order to facilitate the change, Little League has recently created an official Little League school enrollment form. This form can be utilized by players that attend school within a league's boundary but would prefer not to provide a school performance record or school registration record in order to enroll in a league for participation. For further clarification on the new residency requirements, please view the video.
