Every year we cycle 100miles for autism. We participate in an even called bike to the beach for autism.
Join our team and help us support the cause! We are participating in an annual fundraising bike ride to raise money for Autism awareness and research called Bike to the Beach. Our goal is to raise awareness and money to help those whose lives are touched by Autism, a neurological disorder that affects 1 out of every 68 children.
Ethen was diagnoised with Autism at 27 Months old from KKI. Throughout the past 4 years he has received OT, PT, Hippotherapy, Speech and language Therapy, Behavioral Therapy and social skills. With the help of these services he has transitioned into Kindergarten with his peers.
Michelle, Randall (Ethen’s Parents), Donald (ethen’s pawpaw) and Andrew (A friend) did their first B2B ride in 2015 and it was wonderful. The 2nd year the team grew by two to include Mike (ethen’s baseball coach) and John (a friend). The 3rd year was the hardest year yet, conditions weren’t great. This is our 4th year participating in Bike to the Beach and we would love to keep expanding team ethen. Our team has already expanded by 3 this year to include (Todd & Stephanie Robinson – part of our cheer family and William Moon our brother in law).
This event is now the highlight of our summer. Our kids enjoy driving down 404 watching mommy and daddy along with other family members and friends cycling to the beach. They talk about it all summer long, although now any time we say we are going to the beach, they ask if we are biking there. 😉
Our team is continuing to grow year after year. To see so many wanting to support Autism is such a great feeling. To be part of an organization where so many people ride for a great cause is heart warming.
Please consider riding with us!!! The Autism community is amazing, and I must say, I am PROUD to be a part of it.
We would appreciate any effort on your behalf to support our journey and improve the lives of those who are touched by Autism.
