Science of Speed’s Champions Ride hosted ride to support local charity this past weekend
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Performance testing and endurance coaching company, Science of Speed, brought together more than 35 cyclists this past Saturday in support of a local nonprofit. The Champions Ride featured 67, 28 and 7.4 mile ride options beginning at the Centre of Tallahassee. Participants logged distances to raise funds for the Hang Tough Foundation. With the help of participating cyclists, their supporters, and Science of Speed, the ride prompted many donations made in support of families in the Big Bend who are burdened with childhood illness or special needs.
The courses brought cyclists through challenging and scenic roads. While a more competitive ride was originally planned for the event, riders enjoyed a intimate and laid back cycling experience with no registration fees and no time clock.
The Hang Tough Foundation’s mission is to be a physical, mental, and financial reprieve designed to provide support, hope and encouragement to clients during their journey with childhood illness or special needs. Founded and based right here in the Big Bend, the organization serves more than 100 families of Hang Tough Heroes, children who are suffering from all kinds of diagnoses.
“There’s no better feeling than knowing your training is allowing you to make an impact on your community and we’re very honored to have partnered with Hang Tough to give local cyclists this opportunity,” said Brady Irwin, Science of Speed owner and coach. “Knowing the stress and the pain that childhood illness can place on a family, I am moved by the turnout that we had for this event and the positive effects that it will bring to Hang Tough Heroes and their families.”
