The Team leaves today for Iowa where they will ride 420 miles across the state in one week on this year’s RAGBRAI course, raising awareness and funds for BackStoppers.
Team BackStoppers member Bob Stuckey stopped in our office last week and let us know everyone is ready and excited, and that the heat shouldn’t be too bad this year. If you can believe the extended forecast, that is.
Team BackStoppers, founded in 2013, is a group of cyclists of all skill levels. These ambassadors on bikes don BackStoppers jerseys for their annual trip to RAGBRAI and while logging miles in Missouri and Illinois all year long. Funds raised by the Team benefit The BackStoppers Education Fund.
Good luck Team BackStoppers! We know you’ll have a very challenging, rewarding, and successful week all while having a lot of fun. Thank you for everything you do for The BackStoppers!

In May of last year, we announced that Mr. Paul Abrams, President and CEO of Edwin-Claude, Inc. had issued a challenge: add 200 new first responder members in 2015, and ECI would donate $10,000 to The BackStoppers Education Fund. We’re happy to announce first responders stepped up to the challenge and exceeded our goal. In 2015, we added over 230 new first responder members!
The BackStoppers would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this possible. Thank you to each and every first responder who became a member last year. Thank you everyone who helped us spread the word about the Challenge. Thank you Edwin-Claude, Inc. and Paul Abrams for your great support of our mission and the Education Fund, and for your work to increase awareness of The BackStoppers in our coverage area.
This wonderful support helps us to continue our mission, and we are very grateful.
