|Join me in my efforts to support Arthritis Foundation, Great West Region!|
|I have been privileged to ride my bike in the 525-mile Arthritis Foundation California Coast Classic for the past two years. This ride has changed my life to be sure, but it has also changed the lives of 100ís of thousands of far more brave and persistent people who suffer with various forms of painful and crippling arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation supports life changing medical research and enriches the lives of children and their families as they learn to manage and thrive under challenging circumstances. In fact, though I joined this ride years ago largely for the opportunity to ride the coast, the event has come to mean so much to me that I stay in touch with the organizers and my fellow riders throughout the year, volunteer when I can, and promote the cause as often as possible. I have even taken on a position as the Ride Director of a local charity ride in Orange County, seeking to merge cycling and charity closer to home (with ride distances that are more accessible to riders of all levels). |
This year, seeking out new places and faces (and without the time to take a week off to ride my bike!), I will be riding in the one-day, 102 mile, 2017 Arthritis Foundation Classic in Marin County, north of San Francisco on July 14th (yes, just a few days away!). The event Honoree is a feisty little guy named Blake Nowak, who I am looking forward to meeting and sending you more information on after the ride.
I would be grateful if you could take a moment to contribute whatever amount you are comfortable contributing to this austere cause. Please donít hesitate to contact me with any questions, or to mail a check if you prefer. I will be sending pictures of this special day to all those who give.
