Late September Ride + Camp • Sonoran Desert • FULLY SUPPORTED • GREAT CAUSE!

Hi Everyone, 

Wanted to share about an AWESOME RIDE/CAMP Adventure for an AWESOME CAUSE!


The The Worthwhile Mile is a fundraising adventure in support of the Walter Spohn Trust. The WST is a nonprofit organization that funds research and education in Clinical Anaplastology, a specialized field of healthcare that provides custom prosthetic rehabilitation for patients who've suffered disfigurement of the face or body due to trauma, cancer, or congenital conditions. The field is greatly underfunded and the WST is trying to change that with its annual Giving Programs. This ride is an important fundraiser for the WST - a great time for a great cause!

That's great Erin. The best way to spread the word about an event is to create an event for it as well. Thanks!

Thanks Yasmeen!
