Started in 2017 Ridin' for RhizoKids is an organization dedicated to raising awareness of the genetic disorder, Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata (RCDP). We exist to raise funds for clinical trials and research to find a cure for these sweet children.
Ridin' for RhizoKids originally started as a 10 day 100 mile virtual bicycle ride for RCDP which is done on your own time and at your location all over the world. It has now become a "circus of exercise" with people road biking, mountain biking, doing Peloton, stationary biking, walking, running, hiking, swimming as well as other types of exercise. Our participants think in terms of 100 miles in 10 days or maybe 100 minutes in 10 days as there are less than 100 children afflicted with this genetic disorder known as Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata.
