Rise Across Texas Challenge

Senator Ellis to Ride
Across Texas
to Ben
efit the Rise Schools


Tomorrow I am embarking on the Rise Across Texas Challenge, an 805 mile charity b
ike ride across Texas to benefit the Rise Schools.  Starting in Orange and ending in Presidio, Texas, the ride will last two weeks.  Although I am an avid rider, I must confess that this will be the longest ride I have ever undertaken. 
Only a very worthy cause could drive me to accept such a challenge, and the Rise Schools are just that.  The mission of the Rise Schools is to provide the highest quality early childhood/preschool education and services to children with special needs (having a developmental disability or delay) and their typically developing peers in order to fully prepare them for their next learning environment and long term success.  Rise Schools are not-for-profit, serving children ages 6 months to 6 years. Currently, there are five Rise Schools in Texas: Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, and Houston.

If you would like more information about the ride and this very worthy cause, please visit I hope you will consider supporting the Rise Schools today.
