And a climb it was. 15 laps around a 11.6 mile loop (including the KSR finishing stage climb of 1300 ft. elevation gain) all in 11 hours, 282 miles and over 20k feet of climbing. Vivien Rindisbacher (KMS class of 2017) took over the reins to lead in this endeavor of riding as well as fundraising $1400 for his lap pledges. Many other KMS student~ athletes and staff took to their bikes as well for some laps up East Mountain Road. Ansel Dickey, another KMS alumni, former pro cyclist now focusing on gravel events was also on hand to ride with Viv for a total of 10 laps on the day.
These acts of Kindness, Character, Altruism are what sets people apart. No one asked these young men to suffer as they did for a cause they are likely just discovering is real and affects peoples everyday lives.
