About the 2016 ride
Pursuit was founded in 2016 to accomplish the following goals:
1. Raise $13.5 million for The Center, an organization based in Houston, TX that serves individuals with disABILITIES.
2. Bring back best practices from the leading organizations across the country serving individuals with disABILITIES.
3. Create a movement and raise awareness for individuals with disABILITIES across the country!
From June to August, a lead cyclist, followed by many others, made their way across the country on bike to learn from leading organizations. After two months, Pursuit raised $13.6 million and captured valuable learnings from 31 organizations. These learnings can be found below!
