OC Legal Administrators to Cycle for Challenged Athletes Foundation

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -   A cycling fundraiser benefiting the Challenged Athletes Foundation will be hosted by the Orange County Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators (OC-ALA) on October 10, 2010 at 10 a.m. at Bill Barber Park in Irvine.

The charity ride is in honor of the late David Brezina, of Colorado, who served as the 1996-1997 National President of the Association of Legal Administrators.

Brezina was involved in a tragic bicycling accident in 1996 resulting in quadriplegia. He continued to serve the 10,000-person association though he was facing significant health-related challenges.

"David Brezina's dedication to the Association of Legal Administrators served as an inspiration to our entire organization," says Stacy Morrison, President of OC-ALA.

Participants in the "David Brezina Challenge" may choose from a five-mile "fun ride," a 10-mile route, or a 30-mile route circling the Back Bay of Newport Beach.

The cost to participate is $10 for children 12 and under and $15 for adults.

The event is part of OC-ALA's Community Challenge Weekend (CCW), a community service initiative that encourages community improvement. All proceeds from the event will go to the Challenged Athletes Foundation.

To register online or to donate to CAF, go to www.davidbrezinachallenge.kintera.org. Deadline to RSVP is October 8.
