If you happened to be driving along Crabapple Road in Alpharetta, Georgia on October 17 and saw a motley band of ladies bundled up and huddling around a table full of apples and oranges, bananas and Gatorade, that would be us! Or if you were driving through Ball Ground, Georgia (just Google map that one) and saw another band of ladies all bundled up around another table full of nourishing drinks and goodies, that would be us, too! Yes, the ladies of Kate Aspen (and one brave Michael) were honored to staff the comfort stations for the 60 and 100 mile routes of the inaugural Tour de Pink Atlanta, benefitting the Metro Atlanta Chapter of the Young Survival Coalition.
Let me tell you, it was cold and windy and the weatherman really did say there might be snowflakes, but we met SO many fabulous riders who braved the elements to ride for a beautiful cause.
According to Atlanta Chapter Executive Director Courtney Bugler, the inaugural ride was an amazing success, with over 300 riders pre-registered (and more expected at race time). And we were all in awe at the incredible job this group did with the logistics of a ride encompassing five different routes, four Georgia counties, and nine Metro Atlanta cities. Can you imagine?
So cheers to all the volunteers and the riders and the survivors who came out for this incredible event! We are so honored and privileged to work with you.
