14787 Challenge

Please join me in supporting the Wounded Warrior Project and their efforts to assist America’s war heroes in combating mental stress and the devastating effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  On Saturday, September 29, 2012 I plan to join other bicycle riders in the 135 mile Whitney Classic Bicycle Ride from Death Valley to Whitney Portal high in the Sierra Nevada mountains.  The Whitney Classic Bicycle Ride starts at Badwater Basin in Death Valley National Park, at an elevation of -282 feet below sea level - the lowest spot in the U.S.  From there, the route travels over 135 miles crossing two major maintain ranges as it climbs to Whitney Portal, which sits at the base of Mt Whitney - the highest mountain in the conterminous U.S. at 14,505 feet above sea level.  Overall I’ll climb over 14,787 feet (the difference in elevation between Badwater Basin and Mt Whitney) in an effort to demonstrate the magnitude of stress, depression, and other effects of PTSD that many war heroes face when returning home from the war on terror.  Please consider making a donation today to help the Wounded Warrior Project achieve their goal to help injured service members aid and assist each other in dealing with PTSD.
