For the last seven years, the American Transplant Foundation and its team of enthusiastic cyclists have plied the courses of the Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival around Castle Rock to raise money in support of their efforts to save lives by reducing the ever-growing list of people awaiting a life-saving transplant. Team Transplant, which includes transplant recipients, living donors and friends, families and supporters of the foundation’s work among its more than 90 riders, has raised nearly $500,000 for the foundation over those seven years. That amount is more than 90 percent of the organization’s fundraising goals.

 
“Team Transplant and the foundation are among our most enthusiastic riders every year,” Harris said. “They bring positive energy, a growing team of riders of all ages, awareness of an important cause, and an additional opportunity for us to give back to our community. We’re always thrilled to have them join us in Castle Rock.”
