Boise Family Returns After Biking 1,200 Miles for Chair the Hope
We talked about this amazing family a couple of months ago (story HERE) and now we have an update.
Remember the Ogden family? Nathan Ogden broke his neck TWICE and became paralyzed. The entire family set out with a mission to ride bikes along the West Coast, 1200 miles to be exact, and raise awareness and money for wheelchairs to be delivered to people in need in developing countries from the Wheelchair Foundation.
They called the ride, Chair the Hope.
The family conquered their goal in just 11 days! They inspired people who heard their story to persevere, despite disabilities and fears. They averaged about 115-120 miles a day and a film crew documented their ride, and are planning on showing the film in about a month.
Through the ride, they’ve raised more than $30,000 from donations and hope to get an additional $40,000 through a matching donation.
You can still donate to the cause, HERE!
