THE STORY:

Hope Water Project wrote -

Water is life…and hundreds of millions of people around the world are suffering today because they do not have access to clean water. Hope Water Project is committed to providing clean water by partnering with communities and drilling deep water wells in some of the world’s neediest areas. Our current project is to provide 1,000 new water wells for the Pokot tribe in northwestern Kenya.

Personally , I am participating in this event for several reasons. First is to honor my sister, Kim  Kunimatsu who recently passed away on July 26th 2016. She was a heart transplant recipient who survived 24 years with a new heart. She was the longest living heart transplant recipient in the history of the United States. Everytime I ride and get tired I think of her. Her strength was unending. She fought through many health issue battles throughout those 24 years. She would have done anything to be able to participate in the Hope Water Project fundraising. Secondly I participate in honor of my son, Briggs Parry.  He was a victim of child abuse from our babysitter when he was 4 months old. He sustained significant brain injuries which resulted in physical limitations. This didn't hold Briggs back. He Road in the ODRAM with me last year. We completed 80 miles which took us 10 hours. He never gave up never complained. He gives me the strength to carry on. Unfortunately  Briggs is not able to ride this year  due to a fractured pelvis .  He is still recuperating from  the extensive surgery . The Pokot tribe would be honored to meet either one of these important people in my life. I ride for them, along with the Pokot.

Never Quit!
