Shawn Gregory's Race for the Nest
Racing to Help Abused Kids
The NEST provides a safe, child-friendly environment that eases the emotional trauma experienced by children during the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases. Shawn Gregory is a good friend of the Nest and has generously offered a unique and interesting way for people to contribute to the Nest's cause. Shawn is a professional single speed endurance mountain bike racer from Dolores, Colorado and will be competing in the upcoming Colorado Trail Race. The race starts on August 1, 2011 at 6:30 a.m. in Denver and follows the Colorado Trail for 470 miles all the way to Durango, encompassing approximately 65,000' of elevation gain. Did I mention he'll be riding a single speed? At any rate, the idea is to donate a certain amount for every mile Shawn rides, which will most likely be every one of them (I haven't seen him quit one yet). For example, .05 would be $23.50, .10 would be $47.00 and so on. The site does not appear to allow a multiplier, but contributors can multiply the amount they'd like to contribute by 470 for their total. Thanks so much to Shawn, his insane mountain biking skills and all of the contributors. For more information about the Nest, go to and for more information about Shawn Gregory, go to and
