Hey again guys,

So this is actually happening. I'm still in the process of fundraising. It's for a wonderful cause. on September 23rd, I will be begin riding from Jersey City, NJ to Culver City, CA in support of the No Limits organization, a non-profit organization that provides after school programs and theater programs for children with hearing loss. I, myself, was in several of these productions as a kid in NJ and am now giving back via a fundraiser by biking across to where there foundation is based!

My goal is educate others on the realities, perspective, and experience of having hearing loss along the way and the resources available while raising funds for this organization. Living with hearing loss can be very frustrating and isolating which is why outlets like No Limits can help combat that. Certainly its helped with my confidence today.

I'm using a Fuji 2015 Touring Bike, it's a beauty!

Currently I have two fundraising pages, one which is where people can donate directly to the organization


and the other is a gofundme page (Preferred)
http://www.gofundme.com/dugar4, which is more personal and a small percentage (10%) will go to helping reimburse my expenses along the trip.

I will be doing some sort of blog along the way.
