    I'm going to be on ESPN...Hopefully

    I just got e-mail confirming that ESPN is going to come up to our bike riding challenge this weekend. The event is on Saturday, but they are coming up Friday to do interviews with several of us that are going to be participating. They want before pictures of us before our accidents and since mine happened when I was 16 the majority of them are all real dorky. I have a friend who works for ESPN, but I've not been able to get in touch with him yet to see if he will be helping with the interviews. There's also another guy that lives about 30 minutes from us that my mom knows that works for them. I'm not sure when it will air or which ESPN channel it will be on, when I find out I'll let everyone know. Getting computer usage up at Snowshoe West Virginia as a little difficult since our ISP does not have a dial out number in the area. I'm sure the president of the sports organization that I work with will let me get use his.
    I am so excited what good publicity

    Because of some timing issues my interview with ESPN didn't happen. But Dave's (the president of the challenged athletes program) and Brandi's went well. I was a little upset because it would have been nice to show there are sports out there that quads can do besides rugby. But at any rate the event went well and it is still really good publicity for the CAWV program. So far we raised $15,000, which is our biggest fund raiser to date. They started to break ground for the new building which is supposed to be finished by Nov. If it's not we are screwed because it gets cold quick up at Snowshoe. ESPN is going to film live from Snowshoe for the NORBA downhill bike race, crazy stuff even if you watch just for that. Our segment will air with that coverage on Aug 18 at 6pm.

    Is this going to be on "Sportscenter" on ESPN or "ESPN Hollywood" on ESPN 2?

    It was on regular ESPN. I thought they did a pretty good job.
