A Word from Dan
I’ve always struggled with finding a cause to advocate and raise money for through my athletic adventures that I felt a personal connection to. Having worked with Nicole for the last several years, she & her family have become my extended family. Her daughter McCall’s Dravet syndrome diagnosis has been heartbreaking and has opened my eyes to a rare disease that affects so many children and families throughout the world. Training for and racing in such high profile, international events like Race Across America and the World Time Trial Championships is a perfect platform for me to raise awareness and much needed funds for a cause that has hit so close to home. Our ongoing efforts will immediately support research for treatments and a cure for years to come. This will directly impact McCall and others like her who are battling Dravet Syndrome every day. We are fighting for their best quality of life. We are cycling for a cure!
