Marcus Sirmans's 2015 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100

On August 2nd, I will be cycling 100 miles in the Prudential Surrey Ride London on behalf of Walkabout Foundation. It didn’t take much time for me to decide to participate in this race because Walkabout Foundation hits very close to home. As I have grown closer to my dear friend Diego Gonzalez-Bunster, I have had the pleasure of getting to know his older brother Luis, who suffered a spinal cord injury and was tragically paralyzed from the chest down when he was 18 years old. While interacting with Luis, I have seen first hand the challenges he faces on a routine basis. I cannot even begin to fathom the experience for other paralyzed individuals who aren’t fortunate enough to have access to wheelchairs.

It is my hope that my pledge to Walkabout Foundation will inspire you to invest in the commitment to help build more wheelchairs for the 100 million people around the world in need. No donation is too small! Your support will not only help the millions around the world in need of wheelchairs, but you will be supporting research innovations that are striving to find treatments and a cure for paralysis. Your support is deeply appreciated.

With the utmost sincerity,
