Vacation for a Good Cause: Arthritis

Hello Friends:

Well, we’re about a month and a week away from a super crazy vacation for a good cause: arthritis. September 28th October 5th, Andrew and I will be biking 525 miles from San Francisco to Santa Monica, CA in the name of arthritis. We’ll be heading off with Andrew’s brother, Austin, and their cousin, Alex, along with a bunch of other folks from around the country.

This event is very personal to me, as I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), a form of arthritis of the spine and back, less than 5 years ago. Injectors and ice in toe, we’ll be biking and camping along the Pacific Coast Highway and trying to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation and Arthritis Research.

We’re planning on getting some posts up here on the blog and also on twitter. Our twitter handles are @leachleachleac and @klasicm. Hope to see you there!

If you’re interested in donating (any amount is great), here’s the link to my page:

In the meantime, we’re getting ready for our next adventure: training for the California bike ride by biking in Bali, Indonesia for 10 days in early September!

See you around!
