I am riding to support Textless Live More (TLLM), a national organization dedicated to ending distracted driving. TLLM is working to pass legislation that makes it illegal to text while driving.
Because of the danger to pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers when a driver is not paying attention behind the wheel, all of us are directly impacted by the risk that distracted driving. I see it in my own community where my children walk and bike. I have seen the devastating impact of a distracted driver who killed Merritt Levitan while she was riding her bike on an Overland trip in 2013.
Since 1991, the Rodman Ride for Kids has raised over $143 million to support at-risk youth. With your support, we will impact the lives of thousands more young people this year.
