Kyle Bryant from "The Ataxian" Inspires RCDS Community

This week, Parents Committed to Diversity and The Office of Diversity and Inclusion presented a talk by Kyle Bryant, a cyclist and activist for the neuromuscular disorder Friedreich's ataxia (FA). Mr. Bryant, who was diagnosed with FA at age 17, inspired the RCDS community with his film and presentation about competing in The Race Across America (RAAM). Alongside friends and supporters, Mr. Bryant and his team completed the "most grueling race in the world," a 3,000-mile cycling route from Oceanside, California, to Annapolis, Maryland, in just under nine days. Mr. Bryant's strength, determination, and optimism was compelling, leaving audience members with a new perspective on their own limitations.
