Our team found purpose in 2020 when we came together with a shared passion and almost no cycling experience to embark on the Triple Bypass Ride in support of Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. On July 22, we take on our third ride in the Rocky Mountains, cycling over three mountains, 12,000 vertical feet and 120 miles in a single day.
We all ride for someone in our lives, whether it be a daughter, son, brother, friend or the families these incredible organizations support and we believe in the mantra – "Yes, we can." We can because this race is incomparable to the commitment our loved ones make every day to conquer tasks we take for granted – and yet, they pursue their dreams with tenacious determination and a smile on their face. That type of perspective makes cycling 120 miles feel like a walk in the park.
We ride for...
Our goal for The Triple Bypass Ride extends beyond crossing the finish line. This year, we have set out to raise $500,000 for Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley, Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago, and Kidnectivity to accelerate their efforts, expand program offerings, and provide equipment and therapy for those affected by Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. With your generosity, we can help those with developmental delays and disabilities achieve their dreams and support the families who love and care for them.
Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley creates limitless possibilities for infants, children and adults with developmental delays and disabilities. We offer pediatric therapy services throughout West Suburban Chicagoland to help families build skills and access resources they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities. More than 1,000 children come through our doors each week. We believe in their abilities, help them reach their goals and celebrate their progress every step of the way.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago serves 44 counties in Illinois. We offer education, advocacy, and case management to people living with epilepsy, their families, and the communities in which they live. We offer a variety of programs and services including case management, individual and group counseling, support groups, school-based education, kids and teen clubs, camps, employment services and a psychotherapy group.
Kidnectivity is where science, innovation, play, and compassion merge to create therapeutic excellence. As our name implies, we have a foundational belief that children create, strengthen and increase connections in response to nurturing, playful, and safe environments. At Kidnectivity, we help kids find their passion for participation in play and life. We merge this belief into a collaborative environment where families and therapists work together as a team to share and grow. Working as a team, our goal is to empower each child to reach their fullest potential.
