This blog contains my thoughts and experiences in training for and completing MAC Ride ’09 (Mississippi river Apraxia Challenge). The MAC Ride is a 585 mile bike ride tracking the Mississippi River in Illinois, north to south, created to raise funds and awareness of Childhood Apraxia, a speech and language disorder that affects many children, including my son. The ride will consist of segments of 90-120 miles per day and take place September 20-25th, 2009. I will be reaching out and meeting with interested persons and organizations in the communities I pass through during the ride. All proceeds from this event will benefit CASANA (the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America). Please check CASANA’s website, http://www.apraxia-kids.org/, to learn more about the condition as well as how you can help support MAC Ride ’09.
