THIRD TIMES A CHARM!
The third annual cross country trip for Pedal for Life kicks off Friday, June 30 th at our Opening sponsor AlloSource, an organization that extends the efforts of organ donation into life-saving bone and tissue transplants.
Pedal for Life hosts annual cross-country cycling events to raise awareness for the need for organ donation in our country. There are currently over 120,000 people waiting for organ donations and our goal is to bring that number to zero.
Pedal For Life began with five friends riding from Washington DC to Iowa City in 10 days. Along the way, we met countless families and individuals whose lives have been impacted by organ donation and were able to encourage several people who were previously unregistered to add their name to the cause.
Our second annual trip saw our group grow to nine riders who made the trek from Iowa City to New Orleans in 10 days. With the assistance of Organ Procurement Offices along the way, we received print, television and radio coverage, including NPR. At one point we had more than 68,000 followers on Social Media!
This year, our group of 12 riders will start in Denver, CO and end up 950 miles and 10 days later in Iowa City, IA on Monday, July 10th . The ride will conclude at the Riverside Casino, our closing sponsor. Local television will capture the return and acknowledge both Riverside Casino AND the McGrath Family of Autos for their contributions.
We would like to invite you to share this journey with us AND help us reach this year’s goal of reaching 120,000 likes, shares and views on Social Media. Show your support for the 120,000 fellow Americans waiting for a life-saving transplant by sharing our posts, following our journey, and donating to the cause. We can make a difference together!
Thank you for SHARING AWARENESS!
