Dream Ride 2016
My name is Brian and I am reaching out to all to support the Special Olympic athletes through a fundraiser – Dream Ride 2016 (DreamRide.org). This event is a seven day motorcycle ride from Palm Beach, Florida to Connecticut, where at the end of the ride there is a weekend full of activities for the Special Olympics Athletes. The seven day journey has stops along the way to provide donations to the local Special Olympic chapters and to reward the athletes with support.
Last year was the first time getting involved with this event and the athletes. It has touched me in so many ways and the positive outlook and attitude of the athletes has inspired me to continue to attempt to raise money for a wonderful cause. The athletes I met along the event route and at the final event in Connecticut were absolutely wonderful to meet and make relationships with. When I signed up to participate last year, I was unsure of what to expect, but after meeting the athletes and regardless of the issues they were dealing with, their positive attitude was absolutely amazing and inspiring. I am asking you to consider making a donation of whatever size you can afford and if you have the chance come out and visit us along our route this year or support your local Special Olympics. Thank you in advance for any donation you can afford. #specialolympics #dreamride
