What a community we live in!

 

The Jeff Dusenbury Glen Alps registration was THE LARGEST event registration to date.  Thank you to all of you.

Talk about an impression.   Nearly 180 people have registered in memory of Jeff.  All proceeds for this event will buy helmets for the kids at the Girls and Boys Club Alaska in Jeff’s honor.  If you haven’t registered you still have time to do so.  Registration will be open for another week.  

Thank you again for thinking of Jeff in this way!

CHAD HOEHNE – many of may have heard but another of our racers was involved in an accident.  Chad Hoehne had a head on collision (on his bike) on the Bird to Gird trail just over a week ago.  Chad was medivaced to Seattle where he has undergone several surgeries over the last week. Chad severed his spinal cord in the accident (among other internal injuries) and is currently paralyzed from the chest down.  We are sure Chad would appreciate knowing how supportive our biking community is by sending him our well wishes.  For more information on Chad’s recovery you can visit:  caring bridge.org/visit/chadhoehne.
