Riders, Jason Weckworth, Dave Stoker, Elliot Block, Jared Ellison, Tad Rogers, Brodie Pollard, Robert Carbonneau, Ryan Robinson all inspired each other and worked well together.
They exist to promote organ donation and transplantation. They have a few members who are organ donors and a transplant surgeon. They had some recipients with them. Jason Weckworth’s wife gave a kidney to Stacy, a crew member. They’re all about promoting organ donation.
Mostly throughout, they felt awesome and enjoyed themselves.
Tad Rogers was sick for two days. But other riders picked up the slack. Sleep deprivation is what affected them most. Communicating and Everyone being Team Players can be challenging aspects, but weren’t because they talked through everything. Every single one of their crew and members did their job. Something that specifically happened was when they were riding through Ohio. From their blog.
“When we weren’t riding, we talked and laughed and took pictures of Kermit the Frog and said silly things that only sleep-deprived people could possibly think of. But it’s what makes RAAM so great… having relationships that help you meet great challenges. These aren’t just RAAM team members. These are my dear friends who are creating memories that will last a lifetime. Isn’t that what we all want to experience in life? “
Well done! That is an example of solid team-work.
