I have been involved with the Courage Classic for nearly two decades and will use the ride to train and raise money for The Children's Hospital. I am also raising money, separately, for residential fire prevention awareness. Below is my fundraising flyer for this year, when I will pursue a lifelong goal in honor of my father.

*****George Raymond Drew was a father, grandfather, husband, attorney, WWII veteran, avid tennis player, a lifelong historian, and a lover of the land. He was the longest practicing attorney in the state of Ohio for many years. He played tennis until he was 86 years old until his back insisted he retire. He worked on the land as often as he could until the day he passed away at the age of 95 in a residential house fire. Ironically, he was proactive in residential fire awareness having owned various second story fire escape ladders at his home and having run fire drills with his children over the years. Our father coveted education and health care, and these two causes will honor his legacy. It is with the deepest gratitude and inspiration that we attempt to honor his impact on our lives.
