Bike Across America for Autism

In August 2013, Local cyclists John Padoven, Joel Sachs, and David Garcia completed an amazing 1500 mile journey from Boston, MA to Key West, FL. Their goal was to raise awareness for autism by encouraging communities along the way to adopt programs serving the needs of individuals with Developmental Disabilities. At the same time, they raised money for Mandy’s Farm. Funds were combined with the grant from Albuquerque Involved to purchase a mounting ramp for the therapeutic horsemanship program.
