I wanted to make sure I posted the following information I received from the National Fibromyalgia Association on an event that is called “All Wheels 4 Fibromyalgia”. Four cyclists travel 3,000 miles in 6 days to raise awareness for Fibromyalgia! What an awesome event!
All Wheels for Fibromyalgia is a cycling team of four cyclists and 12 crew members who are partnering with the National Fibromyalgia Association to bring awareness of fibromyalgia, and to raise funds to support fibromyalgia research and community-based education programs for individuals affected by this disease. The Team will race nonstop for 3,000 miles across the United States from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD in the world’s toughest bicycle race called “Race Across America” (RAAM).
Join the National Fibromyalgia Association and “All Wheels forFibromyalgia” on Saturday, June 12, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Oceanside Pier Amphitheatre as we send off the Team. Race begins at 2:00 pm sharp! Be sure to stop by the NFA booth.
This 3,000 mile trek is in your honor. Lend support and encouragement while following the Team online! AW4F will be posting real-time updates and locations on their Twitter and Facebook accounts (You don’t have to sign up for Twitter or Facebook to view the posts).
RAAM travels through 13 states between June 12 and June 18. If you are in the vicinity of the RAAM route, we encourage you to show your support in person. Wear the orange and blue team colors, bring signs and cheer for the racers! After miles of pedaling, your enthusiasm and support will bring much needed encouragement to our champion riders and crew. View time station locations and estimated arrival times here. Be sure to check Twitter and Facebook links above for the most up to date information.
