Eric and Matt Do Leadville For Norte
UPDATE: COVID-19 changed Eric’s plans. Instead, he accomplished a very, VERY heavy ride back here in Michigan on June 27. For the kids! More here. Gracias,Eric.
Brothers-in-law, Matt Harris and Eric Mannix, are tackling the Leadville 100 this August 15th.
Eric says, “We have our own reasons for wanting it and what we want to accomplish (more to come on that in the future). However, we both thought it would be a great way to get involved with Norte, do our own “heavy ride” and hopefully raise some funds for happy, healthy, strong kids and kids at heart.”
“It is my hope sharing this journey to race the Leadville 100 we inspire at least one other person like Norte inspired my family, and my brother in law and friend Scott inspire me. Grit, determination, and discipline will be my regimen for the next 6 months. With my family and community support, I know I can do this, but we need support organizations like Norte to keep our families happy, healthy, and full of opportunities to do so”, explains Matt.
Eric and Matt Do Leadville For Norte is part of the “Near & Far” Heavy Ride Campaign which encourages awesome people both here in Northern Michigan and those across the US to go big for Norte on August 15th. Whether you ride to Wilderness State Park with the group or whatever is “heavy” for you where you are, we hope you’ll join us. Learn more and commit.
