Rolling with Roy - 130-mile bike ride from Boston to Provincetown - July 31, 2020
In 1995, Travis Roy was a promising 20-year-old hockey star. Moments into his first collegiate game as a Boston University freshman, a freak accident drove Travis into the boards. A cracked fourth vertebra left him paralyzed from the neck down. One dream died that night. But another was soon born when the Travis Roy Foundation was established in 1997 to help spinal cord injury survivors and to fund research into a cure.
The Travis Roy Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the life of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families by providing adaptive equipment and to finding a cure through increased funding of research, resulting in self-reliance and the ability to be as independent as possible.
I have met Travis many times. He is a remarkable man whose life's work - The Travis Roy Foundation (TRF) - has had a remarkable positive affect on individuals persevering through, supporting someone with or trying to find medical breakthroughs for spinal cord injuries.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancelation or reimagining of the TRF's most significant fundraising events; the foundation's life blood.
On Friday, July 31, I will ride my bike from my home in Boston to Provincetown, Massachusetts on Cape Cod; a distance of exactly 130 miles.
To mark the 25th anniversary of Travis's accident turned mission, please consider donating $0.25/mile ($32.50)...or more if you can. My goal is to raise $20/mile: $2,600. Thank you.
