Thanks to your generosity we raised over $25,000 for Teen Challenge.
We have been accepted to compete in the 30th Anniversary Furnace Creek 508 on October 5-7, 2013, “The Toughest 48 Hours in Sport.” It is the world's premier ultra-cycling race. This 508-mile bicycle race is revered the world over for its epic mountain climbs, stark desert scenery, desolate roads, and its reputation as one of the toughest but most gratifying endurance challenges available, bar none. The course has a total elevation gain of over 35,000’, crosses ten mountain passes, and stretches from Santa Clarita (just north of Los Angeles), across the Mojave Desert, through Death Valley National Park and Mojave National Preserve, to the finish line at the gateway to Joshua Tree National Park, Twentynine Palms, CA. This race can be compared to climbing the tallest mountain on earth, Mount Everest 29,029 feet. Both have extreme weather conditions and altitude gain.
