California Coast Classic


California Coast Classic 2017


It has been 12 years since Christiana left us to her permanent home in Heaven and it seems like it was just yesterday. With over a decade of bike riding in memory of Christiana, it has helped our family heal and turn our tragedy into something good for other children and families battling autoimmune diseases. Team Also Touch has raised almost $500,000 to date and it has been an incredible experience. We couldn’t have done it without you! 

We have decided that this will be our last year of riding. We are refocusing our commitment on the fight against autoimmune diseases by doing hands-on work with children and families.

Can you help us finish this chapter in our lives with the CCC by continuing to donate and praying for us? Let’s make this our biggest year ever! 

From September 9 - 16, 2017, we will once again cycle down the coast (from San Francisco to Los Angeles) for a total of 570 miles -- yes this year we are riding 45 extra miles! -- over 8 days. We’ve been training really hard but ultimately, we know it’s your prayers and support that will get us through. Once again, we will be riding as a family! 

Of course, your prayers are the most important request that we have. However, if you are in a position to contribute financially, please click on our links below. Please help us reach our goal.
