Riding for life and dignity

Once more for good measure.  This coming Saturday, I will be joining about 1,000 of my newest, bestest friends on a 50-mile bike ride in the Best Buddies D.C. Challenge to raise money for Best Buddies, a terrific charity that supports people with Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities.  I am riding on a team sponsored by the Jerome Lejeune Foundation and C-FAM.  Dr. Lejeune discovered the gene that causes Trisomy 21, and spent the rest of his life fighting to protect those afflicted with it.  We are riding to demonstrate the commitment of pro-lifers to the dignity of every human life.  Please consider a tax deductible donation in support of our ride at this link.
