For a third straight year, I will be taking part in the Eagles Autism Challenge, taking place Saturday, May 16, 2020. This cause is especially important to me as my youngest son, Benjamin, has autism and is nonverbal.
However, I’m switching things up for 2020. After two years of running the 5K at the event, this time I will be riding my bike 10 miles around Philly.
Why? Well, because my friend has agreed to sell me his old Trek road bike (modified for triathlons) and it actually fits me…unlike the oversized Schwinn 12-speed I’ve been riding for three decades. Also, the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Atlantic City is that night and I am considering doing both events. It’s not that I couldn’t run in both of them, but I thought it would be more interesting to ride and run instead.
So, please consider making a small donation to support my bike ride and Eagles Autism Challenge in 2020. It would mean the world to me — and to Benjamin.
Helping Eagles Autism Challenge is Easy.
