Myron’s 60/20 Challenge
Please join me in my efforts to support the Challenged Athletes Foundation as I ride 620 miles in the Million Dollar Challenge from October 13-19, 2018. The ride starts in San Francisco and ends in San Diego. I will be riding alongside Challenged Athletes.
The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) raises money to help people with physical challenges pursue an active lifestyle through physical fitness and athletics. CAF’s mission is clear: give those with the desire to live active, competitive lifestyles every opportunity to compete in the sports they love.
By making a donation towards my fundraising goal you will provide individuals with physical challenges with the tools necessary to find success in sports — and in life!
A contribution of any size will be graciously accepted.
Thank you for your support,
