The 13th annual Katie Ride—cycling, running and walking—is for a very good cause. David and Susan Caples started the foundation after their 17-year-old daughter Katie died in an automobile accident. The young woman had registered to be an organ donor—turns out that by that small, selfless act, she improved and helped save the lives of five people. The ever-growing charity event continues to raise awareness and funds for organ donation. A “fun” triathlon is a new event this year.
