Ricky-Bobby Bike America for CCC

This campaign ended on May 17, 2019, but you can still make a gift to University of Toledo by clicking here!

Richard (Ricky) Voigt and Robert (Bobby) Easterling, two medical students from The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences, are going on a cycling journey of a lifetime!

After six months of careful planning, Ricky and Bobby will travel roughly 3,267 miles across America, from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, to raise money for UT’s CommunityCare Clinics, which provides free, quality healthcare to the underserved in the Toledo community. Their goal ... bike across America and raise money for a good cause along the way. 

The men will begin their journey following National Resident Matching Program’s Match Day in March, the day they will learn at which hospital they will be completing their respective residencies. Their trip will begin on March 20th in Los Angeles and will finish in early May on the Atlantic shores of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The trip is expected to conclude prior to The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences graduation on May 10, 2019. 

The physicians-to-be plan to complete their tour self-supported, meaning they will carry with them all necessary gear for living and survival (i.e. camping, cooking, clothing) to defray costs. Their plans to trek cross-country have Ricky and Bobby slated to travel around 100 miles a days while raising support for The CommunityCare Clinics, an organization which Ricky and Bobby have been a part of while undertaking their medical school studies. 

The men chose the CCC to assist those less fortunate, who benefit from the free clinic’s care. The clinic relies on volunteer physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical assistants, students, and non-clinical volunteers. It is fully funded by donations and charitable events.  The proceeds will go directly to the clinic’s operation and will provide patients in need with medical care they require.
