Craig Hospital patients, alumni, and friends to ride in annual Pedal 4 Possible bike event
Century Ride to raise money to help patients achieve independence after a spinal cord or brain injury
September 13, 2019
Craig Hospital, a world-renowned center for specialty rehabilitation and research for people with spinal cord injury and brain injury, will host Pedal 4 Possible on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
The charity bike ride will feature courses for all skill levels, including a 10K, 30K, 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 18 year-old Mark Wilbourne from Las Vegas. Mark is freshman at CU Boulder. In January he was training for a triathlon when he lost control of his bicycle and crashed into a parked car. Mark is paralyzed from the chest down, with limited use of his left and right arms and very limited use of his left hand. Mark will be riding a handcycle on the 10K course in his first organized cycling event since his injury.
