13th Annual Katie Ride

2017 proves that the more things change:  Zach is in 3rd grade, Skyler is in 7th grade and both are fun and quirky kids who continue to amaze me. And Alicia and I are getting married this summer!

The more things stay the same: I am riding in the Katie Ride for Life for the 13th consecutive year.  This year I plan on riding 63 miles the day after my 47th birthday.

The Katie Caples Foundation was founded in 1998 by the family of Katie Caples, a teenager who did not survive the trauma of an automobile accident. Because Katie was an organ donor, her organs and tissues helped others survive and thrive.  You can learn more about Katie's story by watching this video:

I am committed to raising $6,600 to help save more lives through the mission of this foundation. If we raise that or more, together we will have succeeded in raising over $75,000 for organ donation awareness over the past 13 years.  Organ donation may not be something we think about regularly, but it is an important life-saving decision that thousands of people depend on every day. One donor can save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of 50 others.

Thank you for your support.  And if you aren’t already, please consider becoming an organ donor.
