The Adventure Set To Begin: The Road RasCals To Ride Across The West for The Bridge Kids
Earlier this year, we learned of a delightful planned adventure of some Bridge supporters this Fall. (see The Road RasCals To Ride Across The West for The Bridge Kids).
Kloe and Lilly are biking from Denver, CO to Los Angeles, CA this Fall in order to raise money for The Bridge School.
In 1986 Pegi Young founded The Bridge School for students with speech and physical limitations. The school is awesome, and students learn how to utilize alternative communication and assistive technology.
You might wonder what biking has to do with The Bridge School? Basically, Kloe and Lilly want to go on a bike ride and raise money for the Bridge Kids and more. Much more. Here's what Lilly writes on her blog Road RasCals | "Quick, what's the number for 911?":
I just want to say thank you to everyone who donated to The Bridge School in honor of our Road Rascals adventure. Kloe and Kyle are officially in Denver, and we leave Tuesday bright and early. The final bits of planning are coming into place- we finally have a place to stay every night, which is a huge relief. We'll be spreading the word of The Bridge School and the different programs that the school offers throughout the trip which will be great.Best of luck to Kloe and Lilly and their journey to help out The Bridge School! We'll be posting updates as their journey start date approaches.
My sister, Leah, and friend, Alex, are going to be putting stuff on the Road Rascals blog as we send them updates throughout the trip, so you can follow how it's going. Also, the fundraiser will be up throughout the trip so please feel free to post it on social media and tell your friends about it.
Anyway, I just want to send a final thank you before we head out. It is pretty cool that this started out as an idea and is now actually happening. And it's even cooler that so many people have supported us in the ways you have. I know this sounds generic, but I typed each of your email address' out and really can't thank you enough. Thank you so much for supporting Kloe, Kyle and myself, and we look forward to telling you stories long after you have any interest in hearing them.
