DN Seeks Cyclists to Represent Our Region for the Great Lakes Independence Ride


Disability Network/Northern Michigan is seeking cyclists of all abilities interested in partaking in the 7th Annual Great Lakes Indepence Ride (I-Ride).  The all inclusive cycling tour will take place August 1-4, and is hosted by the Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living (Disability Network's sister organization.)  The ride is fully inclusive, and promotes advocacy and awareness for individuals with disabilities.  Everyone, with or without a disability, is invited to participate at whatever distance fits their skill level.

The event is a one day, two day, or four day excursion beginning in St. Joseph, and ending in Ann Arbor. Last year, 150 people participated in the event, and 55 cyclists completed the entire journey.

Money raised will benefit Disability Network/Northern Michigan, as well as the Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living.  Click here to register (be sure to choose Disability Network/Northern MI as your team.)  Please contact Annie Campbell at 231.922.0903, ext. 12. for more information.
