It's hard to believe it's been nearly 18 years since the September 11 attacks on our country. At college in Iowa at the time, I remember the first whispers of a plane crashing into the World Trade Center in New York City. I remember a cancelled meeting with my professor, as he needed the time to rewrite his talk for our chapel service that morning.
Eighteen years later, it feels like a lifetime ago. And to the children of the victims, it literally is. This ride will raise money for scholarship funds for the children of 9/11 first responders, those who risked everything that day to save others. It will be an honor for me to ride from Washington DC to Shanksville, PA, in memory and in honor of all who were affected on September 11, 2001. Thank you for supporting me and joining me on this journey!
