Support Damian Lopez Alfonso!!
 
Hey all,

I am writing to spread the word about a young man I recently met, Damian Lopez Alfonso. When he was a young boy he was severely burned while trying to fetch a kite from a power line, loosing his forearms and most of his face. Despite his injuries he has become an awesome cyclist and competed in the 2012 paralympics. Every year in Israel there is a 5 day long bike ride "Wheels of Love" to raise money for Alyn Hospital, a very special hospital that solely focuses on treating kids with injuries like Damian's. I am working to get Damian to go to Israel for the ride so he can show the children of Alyn Hospital that despite their injuries THEY TOO CAN DO AMAZING THINGS!

To read more about Damian's story and support his riding in "Wheels of Love" this October, check out: http://www.youcaring.com/other/damia...-israel-/76740

Thank you all SO much!!

Best,
Rafi

I know you guys probably get a lot of spam on this forum so I am not sure how many people will read this but its really an amazing story that everyone needs to hear.

Even if every cyclist that reads this donated $10, we would reach our goal and get Damian to ride in "Wheels of Love".

Also, if you all have any ideas to help raise money, please let me know!! THANK YOU! :)
