Why I ride
I ride in the Courage Classic for my Daughter Avy. This will be my 14th year participating in the Classic with the Gene Team. 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 17 year old on her way to the University of Hawaii in the fall. 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.
