About a year ago, I received help from many of you to buy a "stander." At that time, I was planning on getting an adaptation for the stander to make it mobile, but I learned later that due to my height (6'2) that is impossible. In searching for something else that would strengthen me while being mobile, I decided upon a hand-cycle.
I am a very competitive person, and intend to do races with the hand-cycle. The main race I would like to run is the 2014 Bearathon. I attended Baylor, but I have not been able to return in the seven years since I was forced to leave. This gives me all the determination needed to be ready for the Bearathon, but first I must have a hand-cycle. I am trying to raise money in order to buy the hand-cycle. I am using money left over from the "stander" as well as my own saved money, but I am still $3700 short. So far, I have raised $1725 or approximately 48%. Any money you can donate would help me out a lot and please share my website around on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
jumped up to 54%!
Let's knock this out!
Up to 58%
Should be at 66% now...

73% now. Not all of the money is on the Piryx page.
Ok guys, we're at 96%! Almost there. I have also found out that the demo of the cycle is being shipped to Dallas and will be there on Monday. From there, it has to be driven down here to Houston and they will bring it back for me to check out. They will then take measurements for the modifications for me and I'm not sure if this cycle will be mine or if they will have to make another.
Helmet isn't an issue. Placed the order and it'll be in Dallas next week.
Victory!! 100% DONE! Good luck training Mitch and I really do look forward to participating with you in any event you may do, be it the Bearathon or some random 5k. Hope the cycle really helps you out. Can't wait for you to start posting PRs to @BU_Iron_Bear!!
awesome Mitch! Kudos to all the Bears that supported him.
Sorry it's taken me so long to give an update. i was sick in March and spent 6 days in the hospital during the first week in April. Last Friday the dealer brought the hand cycle for a trial run. Necessary modifications are being made and I will receive the final product in a couple of weeks.
I've got the helmet on order. Waiting for the shipment to come in.
I was just wondering where we were on this!

Man, I love seeing you on the bike, Mitch. So cool.
That's awesome Mitch, I'm excited for you!
They're delivering the cycle on Thursday.
I need to ship your helmet. I keep forgetting.
Nice! Way to go Mitch.
thanks for sharing Mitch
I did 3..23mi this afternoon, so fellow Bearathon runners, I'm ready for the 5k. But, I'm gonna keep training and get to 13. Y'all better be ready.
