Drowning is the NUMBER ONE cause of accidental death in children ages 1-4 and number two cause of accidental death in children ages 1-14. We ride in support of The Persephone Project (FIGHTDROWNING.ORG) who is focused on raising awareness to prevent this 100% avoidable tragedy. The primary awareness campaigns include outreach to parents and guardians through schools and pediatricians. FIGHTDROWNING.ORG also provides support to families in need of supplemental help in treating a child that has suffered brain damage from accidental drowning.
Our team is training to ride over 100 miles in the Appalachian Mountains this October in support of this wonderful charitable organization. We have ridden over 10,000 miles this year as a team in training for our mountain endurance challenge.
We need your help in raising funds for this incredible cause. Any amount is helps.
