SAVE THE DATE: SUNDAY, JUNE 23!
In 2012 Barry Haarde jumped on his bike with one goal, to become the first person with hemophilia, HIV and hepatitis C to ride from coast-to-coast. That initial journey was named Wheels for the World and was the first of six amazing rides completed by the Texas native. Barry used these incredible rides to raise awareness for bleeding disorders around the world, for those we lost to the blood contamination crisis, and to inspire all of us to strive for more. He collectively rode over 20,000 miles and raised over $250,000 for Save One Life! Sadly, the bleeding disorders community lost Barry in 2018.
Fortunately, his legacy continues with Wheels for the World: Lost on the Tour Divide! Chris Seistrup, a cyclist with hemophilia B, will honor Barry’s memory by raising money to support Save One Life while racing down the spine of the US. Starting in Banff, Canada, Chris will join the Tour Divide and race to Antelope Wells, New Mexico, along the continental divide trail! To make this challenge even more extraordinary, Chris will complete the ride unsupported, meaning he will carry everything he needs for the two week trip with him!
