Bicycling for Awareness

This summer, Ryan Dodge bicycled 4,000 miles in 67 days in order to raise funds and awareness for people with disabilities. Dodge and 90 other members of the fraternity Pi Kappa Phi cycled from San Francisco or Seattle to Washington, DC, stopping at Arc chapters along the route to meet with a fascinating and diverse group of people.

The nineteen year old Dodge is the son of The Arc's new Executive Director Corinne Clarke. Please join us at the Dan Godwin Community Center following the Board of Director's meeting on Saturday, September 25 at 10 am where he will share tales of his adventures. The meeting lasts until 11:30 and light snacks will be served.

Ryan is also the Keynote speaker and DJ for this year's Down syndrome Outreach Buddy Walk. The seventh annual Buddy Walk travels through Fairhaven on Saturday, October 2 from 11am to 2pm, and features music, food and games. Come out and have some fun!
