Welcome to My Personal Page
On November 12th, Donald, Daddy, Isabella, Kloe and myself are riding to cure Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a debilitating, life shortening neuromuscular disease. We will ride with local FA families, friends and cycling enthusiasts to redefine what is possible in FA research.
rideATAXIA was founded by Kyle Bryant, a young man with FA. Kyle redefined what was possible in his life when he took up recumbent cycling. He says after training for and completing his first century ride, "I can't even walk down the street, but I rode 100 miles in a day. After that the sky was the limit." Since 2007, rideATAXIA has raised over $5 million to fund FA research progress.
Every year Dawn and Kevin ask Gavin how many miles he would like to ride, thinking every year he may want to do the shorter/easier route. However, in true Gavin fashion, he responds.....10 miles!!
So on November 12th, we will also be riding 10 miles to support Team Gavin in the Ride Ataxia Ride.
We have started our fundraising, but of course would love to raise more and would love to add more bike riders to our team!! If you like to ride bikes, never ride bikes or maybe would just like to give it a try....please join Team Gavin!! There is a spot for you!!
If bike riding just isn't your thing, but you would like to support our efforts, please click on the donate button and remember that nearly $0.97 of every $1.00 raised goes to finding a cure. So please know that every single $1.00 counts.
