This weekend, on June 27 and 28, Casey MacLean, an ambitious, altruistic 13 year old aspiring firefighter from Marina Del Rey, CA will ride his bike from Fire Station #62 located at 11970 Venice Blvd in Los Angeles to the Whole Foods Market in  La Jolla, San Diego. Last year, he did his first 100 mile ride from Culver City to Santa Barbara and raised $4,100. This year, he is riding 130 miles with the goal to raise $5,000 for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation and his education fund. This is the second year Whole Foods Market is sponsoring his ride and Patrick Bradley, Southern Pacific Regional President will join him for the second half of his ride, from the Laguna Niguel Whole Foods Market store to La Jolla. In addition to Whole Foods Market, Casey has gained support from: GoPro, Wheel World Cycles, Santini SMS, Outlaw Graphix, Invo Coconut Water, Beyond Meat, Hornblower Cruises, Stromer, Bike Attack Electrc+, and Thule. Whole Foods Market got involved when Casey came into the store and shared his story. Last weekend they hosted a BBQ to fundraise and managed to collect nearly $1,000.
