LODI- Price Carlson has been riding his bicycle cross country since last month June. The overall distance he will travel is 3,500 from the west to east coast beginning in San Ramon at the SAP Academy.
The purpose of his mission is to benefit the High Fives Foundation in honor of his son Carson Burlington who died tragically in a car accident in 2017.
Carlson says, “We are looking for a charity to team up with to direct memorial donations, and more importantly, to honor Carson and keep his spirit alive. Carson’s passion in life was snowboarding and helping others. When Carson’s best friend, Travis, was injured in a climbing accident , and become a quadriplegic as a result, Carson was the first to fly to New Orleans to be by his side. When we heard about High Fives and how they help people with life altering injuries, we knew we had a match. We didn’t want this to be just one-time thing. We wanted to develop on going events and ways to grow Carson’s impact in the world”.
Anyone can make a donation and track his progress on his website or social media accounts. Way to go Price!
