Local Family Bikes 1,200 Miles to Raise Awareness and Money for Wheelchair Foundation

A Boise family is about to embark on a 1,200 mile bicycling trip from Oregon to southern California.

The ride, called Chair the Hope, is an effort to raise awareness, inspire others with disabilities, and raise money for wheelchairs to be delivered to developing countries. The hope is to raise $100,000 to donate to the Wheelchair Foundation, a nonprofit that provides wheelchairs to people in need worldwide. Each wheelchair only costs $150.

The Ogden family knows first-hand how a wheelchair can make a difference. Nathan Ogden is quadriplegic, having broken his neck twice about 15 years ago. The first time was from a snow skiing accident and again, when he fell off an x-ray table.

On July 10, Nathan, his wife Heather, and their four children will leave from Mt. Bachelor, Oregon on a two-week relay-style ride to Los Angeles.

Nathan will be riding a hand cycle, while the rest of the family will ride bicycles as they cover an average of 115 miles per day on the journey. Amazing!

We wish this family well on their adventure and for safe travels throughout their journey!

To learn more about Chair the Hope and to follow the Ogden family on their ride, check out the ride website and Nathan’s blog.
