Ride Into the Light
In memory of Cory’s passion and drive in life, his friend and colleague Thomas Pitman has organized Ride Into the Light – a cross-country memorial bike ride. Thomas will start in Imperial Beach, California on January 1st, 2019 and finish January 31st, 2019 in Jacksonville Beach, Florida – see the route here.
This 31 day adventure will be used to help spread the message of the newly founded Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness (IFAA). The IFAA was founded by Cory’s widow Ashley Iverson with the goal of “bringing the darkness into the light” by implementing peer support and mental health programs within Emergency Response Departments. Learn more about the Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness.
This is a nationwide issue facing many of our finest and bravest First Responders. Thomas’ goal is to raise $2,426 – one dollar for every mile ridden – to benefit the Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness.
