In late September of 2019 I will peddle my hand cycle 300 miles in my Rotary International End Polio Now Campaign Good Will Bike Tour in which I will raise awareness about the work Rotary is doing to eradicate polio from the planet.
Training to be a Paralympian comes with seen and unseen expenses. They magically appear in the form of monthly medical insurance premiums, repair costs; gears, brakes, wheels, everything on a handcycle can and does break down.
My training costs for this year-long training cycle will come to about $10,000.
If you would like to assist me, you are welcome to share this with your friends. If you feel so inclined you are welcome to make a donation.
Don't forget to be amazing today.

As a side note: On Oct 8 I was in training for my upcoming Rotary International End Polio Now Bike Tour and crashed into a car. My bike was totaled, and my body was injured. At the encouragement of close friends, I put together a GoFundMe site and asked my friends for assistance to help me raise enough money to replace my handcycle.
18 Days later, the money needed to purchase my newTop End XLT PRO handcycle was met and I can resume my Paralympian training.
Many, many thanks to all my friends who wished me encouragements.
