Craig Hospital to host 2nd Annual Pedal 4 Possible

Century Ride to raise money to help patients achieve independence after a spinal cord or brain injury

Englewood, Colo.— Craig Hospital, a world-renowned center for specialty rehabilitation and research for people with spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury, will host Pedal 4 Possible on Saturday, June 18, 2016.

The charity bike ride, presented by LogRhythm, will feature courses for all skill levels, including a 10K, 50K, 100K and 100 mile route. All cyclists will start and end at the Pearl Izumi Corporate Headquarters in Louisville.

Many Craig Hospital patients and “graduates” will be participating in the ride, including Craig outpatient Justin Pines. Pines sustained a severe spinal cord injury, broken ribs, a fractured sternum, and a collapsed right lung in a ski accident in Tahoe in April. On the 10-week anniversary of his accident, he hopes to ride the 50K Pedal for Possible course on a handcycle. He has raised nearly $15,000 for Craig Hospital from his friends and family. Pines plans to begin his ride at 8 a.m. and is available for interviews about his experience at Craig Hospital and with the ride.

All money raised at Pedal 4 Possible will fund innovative therapy programs that help Craig Hospital patients affected by spinal cord and traumatic brain injury thrive like Therapeutic Recreation, Nurse Advice Line, the PEAK Center, and many more.
