I have close family and friends who were impacted by Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy and it's with help from organizations like the Red Cross that the communities they live in, and that are dear to me personally, found relief and hope as they struggled to get through these calamities and get back on their feet. This ride is the biggest physical challenge I have ever set for myself, but the message is bigger than that. The Red Cross has become synonymous with aid, respite, and support. Please support Sam and me in reaching our minimum fundraising goal of $5000 so that we may ride both to fulfill our personal goals and to provide support and awareness of this very worthy cause.
