Don, and his wife Kelly, are long time St. Charles based riders/supporters of GORC. Kelly was more comfortable racing on the road, but both have competed in/completed events like the UFD Series events, ICCP 3/6/9/12 Races, the BT Epic, etc.
Unfortunately, Don managed to ding his spinal cord a couple months ago, and is working to figure out his "new normal" at the Craig Hospital in Colorado [https://craighospital.org/] (no personal affiliation).
WE - the St. Louis Mountain Bike Community - are in a position to help these people out during the rehab process. Do what you can, even if it means skipping your preferred beer for a day or two, so you may apply the $$ to this cause. And keep in mind, the "times" your team posts are a LOT less important than the cause. You don't even need to participate to donate $$. At the minimum, show up to cheer on those who decide to break a sweat.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Power Up staff via the phone # listed below, coming by the studio, or emailing them via the link shown at the bottom of the graphic.
