24-year-old Sergio Lopez, from Fremont, California, is riding in this year’s Cycle for Sight – a fundraising bicycle ride benefiting Enchanted Hills Camp for the Blind. This is the second time he has ridden, and with each mile he pedals (25 miles this year), he will be raising money for a worthy cause.
“I am always looking for ways to challenge myself and had never been on a tandem bike before participating with Cycle for Sight.” says Sergio. “Not only does this ride present an opportunity for me to try new things and challenge myself but it’s a great feeling to work for such a good cause. The money I raise contributes towards one of the places which have made an impact on my life.”
A second year student at Ohlone College who is getting ready to transfer to SFSU, Sergio has been volunteering and working at Enchanted Hills Camp since 2010. Last summer, he worked as the assistant camp director. When asked to share a few words of wisdom, he said, “When you dream, dream as big as you can. Regardless of any circumstances, any dream can be achieved with enough motivation and determination. Try new things and make the best out of life.”
If you are ready to dream big, try new things and make the best out of life, consider riding in this year’s Cycle for Sight on Saturday April 26, 2014. Riders have the chance to ride 15, 25 or 50 miles down the majestic roads of Napa, alongside 2,000 other cyclists raising money for a worthy cause.
