All of us here at Sign1News want to send a big congratulations to Conrad Baer and Albert Blake.
These two brave Gallaudet alums set out on a mission to bike cross country across ten states through all kinds of challenging weather, terrains and dangers to raise awareness and funds for the American Society for Deaf children (ASDC).
Through the organization’s online initiatives SignOn, hearing families with Deaf children learn ASL, giving Deaf children language access at an early age.
Baer and Blake started their bike journey in Yorktown, Virginia on June 8 and ended 4,000 miles away in Astoria, Oregon this past weekend.
Their goal was to raise $25,000.
They did it! Plus $700 more for a total of $25,700.
Baer and Blake say the money will help over 300 families.
Be sure to check out their Facebook page BBikeUSA to see their wrap-up video.
Great job guys!
