24 Hour Racing for a cause

Sorry for the lack of postage, but looks like blogger may still have a usefulness.

We need your help!

Some of you may know that my cycling team is sending an Ace MTB team to the 24 Hours of Adrenalin at Laguna Seca where we plan to do some serious racing and defend our top step on the podium from last year.
In addition to racing hard, I will also personally be racing to support the foundation that my wife and I started up and are working to get up and running.
To date we have invested our own money, that being said start up is slow as we do not have a huge surplus of personal money to put into it at the moment, and we need help to get things underway.

The foundation's purpose is to assist families with disabled children like our son with education of how to navigate government services, advocacy and how to be an advocate for their child, acquisition of adaptive equipment through donations, and building a network of preferred service providers.

To aid in this process I have set up an Active donation site specifically for this event and hope that those who can contribute will partner with me in getting the foundation off the ground so that we can reach the families and children who need our help.
I have also invited our other 24 Hour Team members to join me in not just racing for ourselves and sponsors, but also for a greater good.

The donation website is: com/donate/ InfoVista24hour

Please feel free to spread the word and most certainly to anyone you may know that has a child with special needs.
Thank you for reading and considering, it means a lot to us to see this work get underway.
