Why I'm Riding in Million Dollar Bike Ride
The 2020 Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center Million Dollar Bike Ride is a fully virtual event being held on Saturday, June 13, 2020. I'm riding in honor of my stepson Patrick Doerr who has FOP. I did a biking fundraiser for FOP in 2012 and I rode 400 miles across the entire state of Wisconsin. I told Pat he is always going uphill, but at least I can get off the bike. Whenever I ride, I ride for those who cannot move and would love to feel the exhilaration that comes with riding a bicycle.
