Man plans to bike more than 1,200 miles to honor niece's memory
Last August, 4-year-old Holland Young lost her courageous battle to cancer leaving behind bereaved family and friends.
Ten months have passed, but Holland left an indelible impression on those around her — specifically her uncle, Keith Davis.
When Davis watched his innocent niece go through chemotherapy, he made a plan.
According to Holland's Heroes, he sought to "Cycle for a Cure," meaning he'd ride his bicycle from Henderson, Nevada, to Dallas in an effort to raise money for Holland's medical bills.
Davis didn't get the chance to ride during Holland's life, but on June 13, he will begin his journey.
According to his video, Davis will donate the money he raises to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
"Children always have a hero, and I was certainly hoping to be a hero for her and to be able to raise money for her," Davis said in the video. "Unfortunately, she passed, but I still want to be a hero for her and to be able to help other children."
