Dollars for Darlo - A Father Rides for His Son and K9 Buddy Dog

 
 
Earlier this month John Simmons completed the Grizzly Peak Century Bike Ride in Contra Costa County, CA and raised over $2500 for Guide Dogs for the Blind. The ride is 75 miles long with nearly 6,000 feet of hill climbing.

“We can attest firsthand to the outstanding work carried out at GDB as our son Matthew, who suffers with severe vision impairment, was the recent recipient of a beautiful companion dog named ‘Darlo’ as part of the organization's K9 Buddy Program,” said Simmons. “Needless to say, Matthew is absolutely thrilled with his new best friend!”
