was taught from an early age that while there is a lot I’m not able to
do, there is a lot I am able to do. I know that riding my bike across
England will probably be one of the most difficult physical tasks I have
ever undertaken, but I am both excited and confident for the
opportunity to bring hope and awareness to more people, particularly
children making similar life journeys.
successfully completed two previous bike trips, I recognize the vital
support that I will need for this third and very important ride. I will
require a team consisting of six people, including a child with AMC. In
addition, different children from Europe will be joining us for portions
of Ride with Hope. I am currently working to arrange media coverage in
the towns that I will pass through, as well as communicating with ESPN
about a follow-up story.
journey will end in Hyde Park (London) where there will be a meet-up
with families from all over Europe. I cannot express the importance for
children and their parents to know one other. Meeting others with the
same condition and challenges is truly joyous. It helps people to feel
far less isolated and to have greater reasons to be hopeful as they join
together to support one another. Families who felt frightened and alone
now feel as if they’re part of one large, loving family.
