Taking place on Saturday, August 19th, Brody’s BUDDY™ Ride is a bike ride to raise awareness for Down Syndrome.
63 miles signify Trisomy-21 – with Down Syndrome, an extra chromosome (chromosome 21) develops and, three (rather than two) chromosomes 21 are present and repeated – hence, 21 x 3 = 63. “More is Better!”
The ride will start and end in Clinton where parking will be available for bikers, as well as food trucks. Not up for the full 63 miles? There will be 3 distance options available – 63 miles, 42 miles & 21 miles!
The event was established in honor of Brody Majka Savicki and proceeds benefit The Brody Savicki Foundation. The foundation’s purpose is to continue to educate and raise community awareness about Down Syndrome, to assist families financially in regards to medical needs of individuals with Down Syndrome, and to provide activities, scholarships and other events for individuals with Down Syndrome.
Down Syndrome is a disability: a disability that does not define one, and one that does not stand in one’s way. “More is Better!”
