Coastin' to Carolina is a 1200 mile bicycle ride down the Atlantic Coast, from Bar Harbor, ME to Raleigh, NC, via the Jersey Shore, the DelMarVa Peninsula and the Outer Banks, for the 25th Annual HDSA Convention (June 25-27, 2010). In 1967 Marjorie Guthrie, the widow of famed folksinger Woody Guthrie, founded the Committee to Combat Huntington's Disease, which evolved into the Huntington's disease Society of America. As in the prior eleven rides, the purpose of the ride remains heightening public awareness of Huntington's disease and raising funds for family services and research towards a cure.

All of us involved with this ride here in Grand Junction and on the road want to express a special thanks and shout out "Great Going!" to the HD Support Group in Lewiston, Idaho. We have just gotten word from them that their "Hog and Grogg" (pig roast) event was a fabulous success. They informed Marie that they will be writing a check for the ride for the amount of $19,000.00. Great Job! All involved with HD thank you.
