Ride 2 Recovery cyclists to land in North Hampton
The SPS Cyclists, a group of students at St. Paul's School in Concord, will be recognized for completing a cross-country bike ride to support wounded U.S. veterans.
Once they reach the beach in North Hampton, the SPS Cyclists will participate in a common tradition in cross-country rides, dipping their bike tires in the Atlantic Ocean, after doing the same thing in the Pacific Ocean at the beginning of a 3,500 mile journey.
Vivado's mother, Katy Cutshall, said parents have been supporting their young athletes in weeklong shifts all summer, meeting up with the group to provide meals, snack breaks and moral support along the route.
"Each family gets a little taste of what it's like on the road with the kids," Cutshall said.
While Vivado had previously acknowledged that goal of raising $100,000 was ambitious, Cutshall said they were elated to have surpassed that goal by $60,000.
The group sent out more than 1,000 letters to families and friends, asking for financial support, reaching out to every contact possible, Vivado said.
"Coming to the end has been bittersweet," she said. "He has really come to love cycling, and I'm sure he's going to continue with it."
There is $75 fee for individual riders, and injured veterans ride free.
