EVENT DATE: Aug 16, 2015
Hi, my name is Christine, and I will be joining my friend, Laura Crago (www.daughters4fathers.com), on an epic bike ride this summer. She will be riding from LA to NY to support Habitat for Humanity in memory of her father. I will be riding alongside her for one week during this amazing journey to support St. Joseph's Heart Center (Stockton, CA) in memory of my father.
Laura and I met through our significant others a few years ago and quickly became close when I lost my dad in 2014 due to complications of a massive heart attack. She has been nothing but supportive, so when she asked me to join her, I immediately said, YES! This ride means a lot to the both of us.
I lost my dad in Feb of 2014, and since then I've wanted to give back to the team who cared for my dad up until his last days with us. Everyone at St. Joseph's Medical Center was great with him, and although the outcome was not what I had hoped for, it's important for me to give back.
We will depart from Santa Monica on August 16, 2015, and I will ride with her to Flagstaff, AZ.
