Sydney has the support of her 3rd grade classmates at Eggert Road Elementary School. Her teacher, Brian Muffoletto, is the one who nominated her to be a Channel 2 News "Great Kid."
"She is a very quiet, humble leader. And she's remarkable, too, because she sets examples for the other students and the students in my class really look up to Sydney," said Mr. Muffoletto.
This year, Sydney will be riding the 10 mile course and is a youth captain for the West Herr Team. She says as she rides, her eyes are on the road, but her heart is with those fighting cancer.
"I think about that when I'm riding and it makes me feel good and it makes me go faster and push towards my goal."
Sydney is well on her way to her $4,000 goal this year. To visit her fundraising page and learn more about Sydney, click here.
