THE STORY:

Riki Rachtman will be riding his motorcycle through all 48 states. This is without a chase vehicle, producer or any real plan. Riki is a walking definition of Murphys Law. If something can happen it will. He has a knack of losing vital items on a almost daily basis. He will also ride to some of the most incredible locations in America and hand with some unique personalities. You can follow the journey when it begins in March through Riki Racht,am's twitter @Rikirachtman and Instagram. From Riki : I don't remember how I first found out about Claire Wineland but in a short time I realized she was not just a 19 year old girl with Cystic Fibrosis. She was one of the most positive women with the greatest attitudes . She has actually taught me a thing or tow about life. Claire Wineland was born with cystic fibrosis or “CF”, a genetic disease that causes excessive mucus secretions and collection, especially in the lungs. Claire has undergone dozens of surgeries and has spent weeks at a time in the hospital. On April 13, 2010 after a relatively routine surgery, Claire became septic and within 24 hours, was in complete lung failure. Her parents were given the option of watching Claire die or putting her on a dangerous oscillator vent, which no child with CF has ever come off of. Her parents opted to put her on the high powered vent and into a drug induced coma so the doctors could try everything possible to reverse the damage to her lungs and her body. In a few short weeks she was posting videos online talking about being in a coma or how to prepare for death using a incredible amount of humor. Ya I know how is that funny. All you have to do is search her name on the net. Watch her uncensored videos. She is the type of kid you would just want to hang out with. Early January I went to Los Angeles and got to meet Claire. We spoke about music, the movie Mad Max she told me to read the book "Blood Meridian" and only when she started to get a little tired did she talk about her Foundation. They raise money to help families with Cystic Fibrosis. She told me of a woman that was on skid row with CF. She found a place to live but could not get the down payment so Claire's Foundation took care of it. The money is to help kids,families and I assure you every penny we raise will be spent on helping someone with CF. I am confident that this is a worthy cause and I appreciate the new friendship I have with Claire and her parents. Thee are cool people here and a great cause. So let's see what we can do this year Claire and her parents want other families to experience the benefit from the kind of support that they received and continue to get; hence, this is the motivation for Claire's Place Foundation.
