Or not hard to ride... after all, this is Barry's fourth trip across country on a bicycle! He makes it look so easy. 100 miles a day? Not a problem. I'm lucky if I do that three times in a summer!
If you haven't gotten involved, now's the time. Wheels for the World: Barry is performing this astounding feat as a fundraiser for Save One Life. Moved by the plight of children suffering without factor in developing countries, Barry has sacrificed time off from work, and his own comfort (though I think he kind of enjoys this crazy, punishing route) to bring awareness to these children, and to raise funds for our core mission work.
Starting in California, and heading east, Barry is traveling 7 weeks on the road. He road through the Rockies, onto Indiana, where he met up with Ryan White's mother, Jeanne.
He will reach Portsmouth, New Hampshire on July 21, just nine days from now! A small contingent from New England will be there to greet him. After all, it's only 20 minutes from my house! Afterwards, we will celebrate with a good ol' New England Clambake in my backyard. Delish!
Barry hopes you will consider sponsoring a child, just as he sponsors Mukesh. We have 70 children waiting!! To sponsor, click here: Save One Life
Or make a donation in any amount to help us reach our goal! Save One Life, begun in 2001, has delivered over $1.5 million directly to patients in need in developing countries! No one else can claim this, and no one does what we do. We make a direct and powerful impact in people's lives who suffer with bleeding disorders in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
Thank you, Barry! For your compassion, fortitude and perseverance!
Thanks to gold sponsor Baxter International Inc., sponsors Biogen, Emergent, George King Bio-Medical, Hemophilia of Indiana, OptumRx, The Alliance Pharmacy and individual donors for making the ride possible and helping us gain on our fundraising goal!
