>>> RIDE CAPTAIN
My wife Peggy and I have five amazing kids ages 25 to 18. I am also the founder of Illinois Fatherhood Initiative, founded in 1997 and is the country’s first state non-profit fatherhood organization, whose mission is Actively Engaging Fathers In The Education Of Children.
I am riding to honor all dads (fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers and father-figures) and in particular four fathers: my dad Ralph Hirsch (84), my deceased granddads: Harry Hirsch and Sam Solomon, and my good friend Jim Mullen, who is a former Chicago Police Officer, who was catastrophically injured in the line of duty and has been a quadriplegic the past 16 years.
I invite you and anyone you know to be a ride participant. Please click here to learn more about becoming a rider. At the very least, please click below to visit my fundraising page and make a donation. Thank you!!!
