CyclistStanley Paris, PT, PhD, FAPTA, FAAOMPT is an educator and physical therapy research advocate. He has previously raised money for physical therapy research by trying to sail around the world. Due to damages that occurred to his boat, Kiwi Spirit, during his endeavor, his trip was cut short. This year, he is at it again to try and raise as much money as he can for something he is so passionate about.

April 1, 2016 he will set out to bike across the United States. It is a 3,000 mile journey that he is trying to accomplish in 30 days with very little rest, 3 days rest total that is. His trip starts in San Diego, California and is set to finish in St. Augustine, Florida.

He is raising money through donations and he is also opening this event up to the public to join him. Anyone who wants to be part of this amazing experience for a great cause can take the bike ride for just part of the journey or the whole thing.  Best of luck to Stanley Paris and all those who volunteer to ride along with him for such a wonderful cause!  Below is a link that will take you to the foundations site where you can view start times and locations, register or donate.
