The Story

EVENT DATE: Mar 25, 2015

Riding and walking for those who can’t, Thomas E. Smith and Thomas E. Smith Foundation advisor Teague Egan will be embarking upon the inaugural Reality Ride Challenge, a 2,100-mile, 31-day trek from Boston, MA to Miami, FL. Tracing Thomas’ path from his accident (Massachusetts) to recovery (The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis in Miami, FL), the Reality Ride Challenge is a brutal test of physical endurance and mental fortitude. Thomas and Teague will perform the following each day for 31 days: 65 miles per day on a specially-designed bike for Thomas, 3 miles per day in a wheelchair (in recognition of Thomas’ three accidents) 1 mile per day walking.
