On August 26th, 2017, I will be riding in the Summit Challenge, the 10th annual benefit ride for the National Ability Center. The National Ability Center is a nonprofit organization in Park City, Utah that empowers individuals of all abilities by building self-esteem, confidence and lifetime skills through sport, recreation, and educational programs. I will be riding _________ miles to support their mission.
My personal goal for this ride is to raise $________________. One hundred percent of donations directly support the programs offered by the National Ability Center, reaching children, adults, military service members, and their families every day. YOUR donation DOES make a difference.

OR SHARE MICHAEL RAY’S STORY:
Michael Ray, 50 had a stroke in 2013. He started cycling at the National Ability Center in Park City in 2015. As a result of his stroke, Ray rides pretty much with one functional leg, and virtually no control of the right side of his body.
Michael continues to set high goals and reach them, after finishing the 18 mile in 2015 he rose to the challenge of the 52 mile ride last year, and now has his eyes set to cut his finish time in half for the 50 mile ride this upcoming August.
For Ray, The skills and confidence he found through the Ability Center has translated into greater independence. Riding a bike is not the end goal. “I need the challenges of the course because I want all of the people to know that I am determined to get back to myself, ” said Ray. “I want to go back to work again. Cycling is a step toward getting back to work.”
This is a great cause, and I hope that you will consider donating to my ride. My goal is 100 percent participation from friends and family, so anything you give will help further the National Ability Center’s mission to make a global impact for people of all abilities.
