The Riders Speak: Julieann Maciag

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Julieann Maciag, one of our Financial Services Representatives, shares with us what the Ride For Missing Children means to her , as well as the emotions that she feels as she has trained for this 100 mile event.

The ride means a few things to me…  One, a way to start healing after my father’s passing in January.  Secondly, being a Mom, it would devastate me if something happened to MY son.  I can only imagine what these parents and abducted children are going through.  And lastly, I never forgot when Sara Ann Wood was taken.  I was devastated for her and her family.  I remember buying a button with her face on it.  I wore that button every day for the longest time.  A couple weeks ago I found it while cleaning out my storage unit.  Of all the years to rediscover it, I find it THIS year, the year I am a first time rider.  Since then, it’s been with me each time I get on my bike and will wear it the day of the ride in her honor.  So this year, I ride for Sara, My Son, and my Dad.

The words that describes my feelings about the big day, Anxious, Impressed, & Emotional.  I’m anxious about making the whole way.  I am really impressed by the experience, and camaraderie of the other riders, and the precision the Shepard’s work in effort to help you train.  And I am emotional as I remember each time I get on my bike, the real reason we are all doing this.  For the abducted children and their parents.

The Riders Speak: Lisa Stuttard

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Lisa Stuttard is a member of Team First Source and will be participating in her first Ride for Missing Children this week. We spoke with her about what her training and experience has been like so far.

“As I First Time Rider, I am honored to be part of such a tremendous event.  Throughout all meetings and training rides, one thing has always stood out in my mind.  “No matter how difficult the training ride is, how cold or how windy it is, or how stressful it may be to fit in meetings, nothing compares to what the children and families go through, whether the child is missing, or exploited. ”

“This has been a tremendous growing and learning experience for me. I am very humbled by the strength and encouragement I have received from the individuals involved with “The Ride”.  Sharing the events of the day will be exciting and I’m glad to be able to participate with such a great group of co-workers.”
