Why I ride
I ride in the Courage Classic for my Daughter Avy. Avy is a patient of the metabolic clinic at the Children's Hospital. Avy has PKU. PKU can affect the brain if not diagnosed and treated properly causing brain damage. I ride for the Gene Team in support of treatment and diagnosis for all metabolic diseases. With the help of the metabolic clinic Avy is a healthy, active 15 year old. We are grateful for all they do at the Children's Hospital Metabolic Clinic and their continued support of our family and other families who struggle with a metabolic disease. This will be my 11th year riding in the Courage Classic.
