Welcome to Bike for Kam 2014! Thank you for riding with us!
Bike for Kam was founded in 2011 by Kam and a couple of her friends. We had a vision of biking for a cause, to raise funds and awareness for HIBM (Hereditary Inclusion Body Myopathy); a rare genetic muscle debilitating, and degenerative condition. Since, we have raised nearly $75,000, all of which has been given directly to HIBM medical research (ARM, non profit organization for HIBM. www.hibm.org).
In 2011 when we started Bike for Kam, Kam was still walking. Today she is permanently in a wheelchair and unable to walk. This is true for many patients. We continue to bike in hopes to stop this relentless progression.
This year we are biking from LOS ANGELES TO SAN DIEGO on May 31 – June 1, 2014. This ride consists of 135 miles over a weekend, and one night of camping at San Onofre Beach. The route begins at Los Angeles Union Station and ends at San Diego Santa Fe Station.
