'Ride Deaf' Bike Challenge slated
Deaf Services Center officials in Worthington recently announced they will be holding a "Ride Deaf" Bike Challenge on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Glacier Ridge Metro Park in Dublin.
Proceeds of the race will go back to Deaf Services Center's programs and services to benefit the deaf, hard of hearing and hearing communities and their families.
Registration for three different routes will begin at 7:30 a.m.
The routes will include a 10-mile "Family Fun" ride and more challenging ones of 32 and 62 miles.
Bruegger's Bagels will provide bagels and drinks before the ride and Texas Roadhouse will serve lunch afterwards.
"DSC helps bridge the gaps in providing the critical and life-changing programs as we assist our consumers on a daily basis," according to spokeswoman Marsha Moore. "DSC is where communication happens every day with American Sign Language interpreting, community education, case management, advocacy, ADA technical assistance and other accessible services we provide to the deaf, hard of hearing, late deafened and deaf-blind communities."
Deaf Services Center serves a 24-county region including Franklin, Delaware, Licking, Union, Fairfield and Muskingum counties.
