The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) is teaming up with Bike Across America participants Albert Blake and Conrad Baer (@BBikeUSA) as they cycle across America to support and raise awareness for ASDC, the 2019 RID Cares recipient.
Become a sponsor! Your donation of any amount goes to ASDC to help hearing parents with a deaf child access ASL classes and connect with Deaf mentors so their child can learn, thrive, and succeed.
Interview with Deaf bikers Conrad Baer and Albert Blake
Why did you choose ASDC as your charity to support?
We chose American Society for Deaf Children (ASDC) as the organization to fundraise because the organization’s values align with our vision. We believe in sign language rights and education for deaf children, and ASDC practices this. It was an easy, natural fit for us.
I have always been passionate about doing things with deaf children and students from Kindergarten to Grade 12, such as coaching, directing, and working with deaf people. I always want to find ways to give back to the Deaf community. ASDC is the perfect organization to support because I love serving for deaf children. ASDC has a lot of ideas to help deaf children, and this trip will be a great way to collect funds for ASDC!
