SKLZ is proud to support the Challenged Athletes Foundation and their Million Dollar Challenge bike ride to raise funds for athletes with physical disadvantages. This year SKLZ has two riders that will be participating in the ride, CEO John Sarkisian and VP of Sales Mike Carlson. Today was the SKLZ sponsored final day of the 620-mile journey down the coast.
Cyclists left from Dana Point to continue on in the last day of their journey. Riders rode in some of the largest groups of the week being that they were celebrating the accomplishment of their journey.
SKULLCANDY had a surprise SAG set up along the route. Music was jamming and riders received free shwag as they passed through. If anyone wasn't excited when leaving Dana Point, they definitely were after this stop.
As riders reached La Jolla, some took a minute to rest and wait up for friends, new and old. Riders talked about the week's events, took photos, swapped numbers and everywhere you looked, you saw what we athletes know is a team.
Riders eventually made their way down into the La Jolla Shores Park where they were greeted by family, friends, media and the SKLZ team who had set up games and obstacle courses for everyone waiting. 620-miles and 1.4 million dollars later riders made it.
SKLZ CEO, John Sarkisian not only rode in the ride but is also one of the co-chairs for the Million Dollar Challenge. He is a firm believer in the Challenged Athletes Foundation and their mission, which is why SKLZ is and will continue to actively support CAF. SKLZ helps athletes by providing them equipment and content to get better at their sport - by supporting CAF we can help do the same for athletes with physical disadvantages.
