Celebrating the amazing Megan
The purpose of the ride is to bring together bike enthusiasts and families for a fun morning of bike riding to celebrate and remember Megan Stancliffe. Megan was a young woman who endured many physical challenges with grace throughout her short life. Megan passed away at age 23 in July 2017 as a result of complications from cerebral palsy, which she contracted when she was only two weeks old. Despite the fact that Megan wasn't able to talk, endured many surgeries, and was confined to a wheelchair, she lived life with a spirit of adventure enjoying pastimes such as riding an adaptive bicycle, canoeing, and zip-lining. Participating in Megan's ride honors the memories of Megan and her positive spirit.
Megan's Ride will benefit Outside the Box, a day program for adults with disabilities. OTB Day Services Program participants are peer matched in small groups and have weekly opportunities to practice skills in community settings of their choice. OTB Employment Services works with participants on skills and knowledge they need to be successful in the workforce. Studio OTB allows program participants to express themselves artistically through a variety of media. The funds raised from this event will be used to increase the capacity to meet the growing demand in our community.
