Hey yall!! Firstly,, THANK YOU so much for taking the time to check out this page!
In May, I will be participating in a 6 day, 530 mile- charity cycling tour from Houston, Tx to New Orleans, La,,,, The "Tour de Rouge"!!! The other riders and I will be riding to raise money and awareness for The Arc. The Arc is an AMAZING foundation that has been helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities for 70 years!! Raising as much money as I possibly can for The Arc means so very much to me. My sister, Britni, was disabled, and was taken from us way too soon at the age of 6. Knowing that every single dollar I raise for The Arc will go towards helping someone, somewhere, like my sister is something I'm very proud and excited to be a part of!!! In my early 20's, I worked at Berwick Elementary School (which is actually on our route for the tour!!), teaching children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, another reason this foundation and ride is very near and dear to my heart! This may be my first year riding and raising for the "Tour de Rouge",,,, but for sure will be making this a yearly thing!! :)
