David Bergman and Michael Higgins are blazing across 3,600 miles and 14 states to raise funds & awareness for BlazeSports America!

Great friends, Michael (a Type 1 diabetic) and David have completed multiple Ironman Triathlons, marathons, and other long-distance cycling adventures together. This time they have decided to do go coast-to-coast in 36 days to help veterans and youth with disabilities. They will be joined by their friend and fellow cyclist, Vik Nat in Colorado to finish the journey through the last five states.
