All PROCEEDS TO HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER!!!
David Clark is at it again! This time he is riding a Fat Bike thru the Northeast United States to show support of all those out there in a fight for life.
No one gets thru this life without facing adversity. For some it’s a battle with depression or obesity. Others face failed relationships, unplanned career changes or even severe health problems... problems like cancer. David Clark has overcome several life threatening challenges of his own and today stands in the light to support and inspire others to keep fighting. A formerly depressed, 320lb alcoholic and fast food junkie turned bestselling author and elite endurance athlete, David has made it a life’s work to tackle impossible challenges. Challenges like running the Boston Marathon four times in one day, running across Death Valley and even running non-stop on a treadmill for 48 hours.
Today, David is standing up to help those fighting Cancer. David’s father was diagnosed with advanced cancer in 2019. Inspired by his fathers ferocious ongoing battle David is riding in support of all people fighting for life one day at a time. A lifelong hockey fanatic and record breaking endurance athlete David is combining his two passions to help save lives. David is riding a Fat Tire mountain bike to Six Hockey Clubs from Detroit to New York to send a message to those battling Cancer that they aren’t alone. In the military soldiers let each other know they have each other’s back by saying “I got your six”.
Taking that sentiment to heart, David coined this endeavor the “I Got Your Six Ride”. The Ride will start in Chicago hitting Detroit, Pittsburg, Washington, Philly and finally ending at his home city of New York. He will ride every day, thru rain, snow or shine and battle all the elements on this epic undertaking.
In addition to inspiring people to find their own strength Clark hopes to raise money for the NHL’s “Hockey Fights Cancer” campaign. David says that if he can surive addiction, suicidal depression and obesity to find a new life as a sober and happy athlete, then there is no such thing as too far gone and that every day is worth fighting for.
