KHS Roma Tandem helping keep Disabled Athletes on the Road

We received a letter today from David Larson, captain and organizer

Hello All,

Tom Vulich would like to thank everyone for the help they have given him to keep him on a bike.  Today was a milestone day as the Tandem needed repair and Tom joined the morning ride on his single, he road well and safe.  A couple of people asked if they could help financially and contribute towards the tandem.  Through generous donations and the help of KHS Bicycles we had enough money to purchase the tandem with money left over for repairs etc.

The end of this month Thilo Wilhelm has donated his time to Captain David Collins a blind veteran on a 3 day ride the Disabled Sports of Eastern Sierras puts on.  The organization donates the food ride etc. to the disabled athletes at no charge.  April Wolfe from the City of Reno is going and needs to raise $1,500 for the cause.   Rather than donate money to Tom’s tandem may I suggest we support April in all she does for various sports programs.  Below is a link to donate.  Cash or a check would also be accepted.

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page!

Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra’s (DSES) annual Sierra Cycle Challenge Fundraiser is scheduled for the last weekend of July. Thilo, Todd and April Wolfe will be riding and fundraising to support DSES.

This organization helps athletes with all disabilities; short term, long term, physical, intellectual and visual.  Access to independence and outdoor sports truly does change lives and has been an important part of our personal lives!  Your donation to our Sierra Cycle Challenge fundraising page will help ensure that DSES can continue to change lives regardless of an individual’s financial circumstances.  The money raised in this event will go directly to their scholarship fund and will help ensure that no athlete is deprived of services for financial reasons.

Thanks to All,

David Larson
