THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my campaign website. Please consider making a donation. On September 13, 2015 I will be riding in the Giro di San Diego. To make my ride more meaningful, I am raising money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) – Operation Rebound, an inspiring 501c3 non-profit foundation that gives hope to thousands of military service members and first responders with physical disabilities around the world by showing them what is possible. By providing support, mentoring, and grants for adaptive sports equipment, competition and training expenses, physically challenged athletes are able to become whole through sports. Did you know there are 40-50 million people with physical disabilities in the U.S. alone? Only 1 in 10 physically challenged people participate in sports. There is a huge population of people who aren’t able to go for a jog, play basketball, or participate in any of the sports activities so many of us love. But it’s not because they lack ambition, desire, or skill. They only lack the support and funding to get the resources they need to succeed. Adaptive sports equipment like basketball wheelchairs cost up to $5,000, while running prosthetics can cost more than $30,000. Learning to swim when you lack a limb (or limbs) requires special coaching. Insurance typically does not cover these expenses. Just like me, these challenged athletes want to participate in athletics and feel the rush of competition, but they face a major obstacle. CAF is changing this reality by helping thousands of people of all ages, ethnicities, and disabilities realize their dreams. Still, we need your support to get even more challenged athletes to the finish line. With our help, challenged athletes can bridge the financial gap and overcome obstacles blocking their path to athletic achievement. That is why I am challenging myself to make a difference in their lives. Please partner with me by making a donation here on my secure personal fundraising webpage Join me in making dreams come true for challenged athletes. Give the gift of sports and help get challenged athletes off the sidelines – and into the game. Thank you for your support
