Why I am riding in the Tour du Rouge and helping The Arc
I spent ten years of my childhood in Houston fighting and eventually winning a war against epilepsy. Now, I try to find ways to give back to the community, to help my brothers and sisters that haven't been as fortunate. I make policy decisions for the VIA Metropolitan Transit Authority in San Antonio as chair of the Accessible Transit Advisory Commitee. But, I always strive to do more. Previously, I've done Beard Battles for Epilepsy and the BP MS150; this year, I've chosen to ride in the Tour du Rouge, which benefits The Arc of Greater Houston.
How The Arc of Greater Houston Helps
Participation in the Tour du Rouge will help The Arc provide services and programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
