Hope for Gabe Foundation
The "Hope for Gabe Foundation"(H4G) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Birmingham, Alabama. H4G was formed in 2010 by the family of Gabe Griffin, a 14-year-old Birmingham boy who was diagnosed with the rare genetic disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
Team R4G includes road support from Kate Staley, Jon Bourque, and Stephen Peters. They will follow our cyclist in a sport utility vehicle provided by our sponsor, Donohoo Chevrolet. Vehicle safety lights and sound system will be installed by Haynes Emergency Lighting.
Our crew includes drivers Lou Pfau and Tara Stallworth Lee following in a recreational vehicle (generously provided by a local family) giving shelter to our riders and crew each night. Live web and social media support is provided by Tod Ingram.
