What started out as an innocent post on social media turned into a beautiful example of Community when the incredible team at Body Cycle Studio rallied around a wonky idea: Let’s have a fundraiser to send Barry to represent at one of the toughest events in the world!
The rest, as they say, is history. In a nutshell: we had a blast of a day; we exceeded our fundraising target and donated the excess to the environmental education nonprofit I manage; and I raced my way onto the podium in the epic event.
There’s much more to it, of course, and alot of the story can be found in a post I wrote for the Body Cycle blog expressing my Gratitude for their awesome support. Check it out here: With Gratitude.
