Cort says: “I made it! I did not set any speed records, but I rode 54 miles, including 1,729 feet of elevation gain. I participated in Rotary’s Ride to end Polio to raise funds for vaccinating children. As most of you know this is very personal for me because I am a Polio survivor. My right leg is paralyzed below the knee. So far I have raised over $3,300, which will be matched 2 to 1 by the Gates Foundation turning your donations into over $10,000. Thanks for your support.”
Cort’s wife Tonya, plus Carol and Jeff Kozimor supported Cort in Tucson and joined him on the ride.
Donations are still being accepted at Ride to End Polio.
