BENEFITING: ATHLETES IN TANDEM

THE STORY:

Athletes in Tandem founder, Dennis Vanderheiden, will be biking 585 miles over 13 days across some of Colorado's most challenging and scenic terrain while pulling PJ Snyder, an athlete with Angelman syndrome in a bike trailer. The money raised will be used to finance a documentary of the ride which then will be distributed as part of a capital campaign to 1) support research in finding a cure for Angelmans syndrome 2) provide home ownership to PJ Snyder and 3) support the continued operation of Athletes in Tandem. The documentary will tell the story of Dennis' loss of his wife of 31 years to cancer and how the mission and visions of Athletes in Tandem enhances the quality of life for PJ, his mother, Cindy, and many other individuals with disabilities. PJ was adopted by his mother, Cindy, a single parent, when he was 8 years old and had just been diagnosed with Angelman syndrome, a genetic disorder that is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy. Athletes in Tandem believes that all people have a common desire in life to play and recreate. Recreation creates happiness and an improved quality of life. Athletes in Tandem pair’s athletes of different abilities to compete in mainstream triathlon, swimming, cycling and running events. We connect the possibility with the experience by sharing the feat.
