Hi Everyone! As most people know, I work for David Baldwin. Last year, David decided to ride his bike 3,500 miles and raise $11 MILLION DOLLARS to support The Center (home to hundreds of developmentally disabled adults in the Houston area). David and his wife, Maire, have been involved with The Center for more than 25 years. Since working for David, Ava and I now volunteer at The Center whenever possible. It is a wonderful community!! I've included a video and more information below. Any amount you wish to donate is helpful. Thank you for your financial consideration.
Pursuit is a capital campaign with a two-tiered mission: first, to raise $11MM for The Center and second, to advance the interest of all individuals with disABILITIES across the country. Across the United States, there are currently 10 million individuals that have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Pursuit’s mission is to bring awareness to this underserved population by bicycling across the United States this summer.
Beginning on June 6, 2016, David Baldwin, longtime Center Board Member, will depart from Astoria, Oregon and will ride 3,500 miles, reaching Rehoboth Beach, Maryland on August 3. David will be accompanied by a small support crew. Along the route, the Pursuit Team will visit leading organizations, universities and research facilities to garner best practices in serving individuals with disABILITIES.
