As if doctors didn’t already do enough, I’ve recently discovered a compelling story of doctors who have given new meaning to being “hands on.” To kick off Colorado’s summer cycling season, thousands of riders will meet at the Douglas County Fair Grounds in Castle Rock, on June 2, to ride in the 2013 Subaru Elephant Rock Ride – the Rocky Mountain’s largest cycling festival.
The American Transplant Foundation’s (americantransplantfoundation.org) charity cycling team, Team Transplant, is made up of 32 transplant recipients and living donors who have made remarkable recoveries. This group is committed to raising awareness to help save the lives of those still waiting for a transplant.
Right now, there are 2,300 anxious Coloradans who are in need of a lifesaving transplant. For more information on how you can participate in the 2013 Subaru Elephant Rock Ride visit, elephantrockride.com.
