For the second time in three years, Notre Dame's College of Science Dean, Greg Crawford, will be stopping in Denver. This year, Greg is riding his bicycle from Boston to Pebble Beach - 3,250 miles - to continue raising awareness for the research being done to find a cure to NPC Disorder, the disease that took the lives of three of legendary Irish Football Coach Ara Parseghian's grandchildren.
Greg, along with his entire family, stopped in Denver two years ago as part his first ride - Desert to Dome. This time, Greg will be stopping in Denver on Sunday, June 10th, on the way to Pebble Beach, California. This year's ride is called the Road to Discovery.
Dean Crawford would like to visit with the Denver Notre Dame Family and bring us up to speed on the research efforts. To read about Greg's trip, check out his blog at http://blogs.nd.edu/gregcrawford/. Greg departed from Boston, Massachusetts on Monday, May 21st and he is on his way - UPHILL - to Denver - a journey of 2,069 just to stop and see us!
The Club has arranged for a fun event at Little Man Ice Cream in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver (see www.littlemanicecream.com) with free ice cream for the first 150 attendees. Also, you will have a chance to check out the "Road to Discovery" Shag Wagon and have a chance to win some great prizes including Notre Dame home game football tickets, Brian Kelly autographed footballs, Muffet McGraw autographed basketball, tee shirts and much more. Finally, CBS4 has agreed to come by and interview Greg while he is with us.
We hope this to be a family event so bring the kids and help Dr. Crawford and Notre Dame find a cure for NPC Disease. If the kids bring their bikes, we will see if Greg will lead a short ride around the neighborhood.
