Andrew Gritzmaker’s Race Across America

Posted in: News

Andrew Gritzmaker, our Executive Director, recently returned home from a 31-day, cross-country bicycle race from Astoria Oregon to Yorktown Virginia. He participated in the Trans Am Bike Rice and competed against 113 other cyclist racing coast to coast and personally funded 100% of the trip. His motivation was slightly different than most of the other racers as he wanted to raise awareness and funds for our families. He hoped to draw parallels between his race and what our families face during their medical emergencies – having to rely on the generosity of perfect strangers during a difficult and trying time. Through his amazing efforts he raised just under $30,000 and made it to Yorktown safely on the 4th of July.
