CDT’S EXPERIENCE MAGAZINE EDITOR TO RIDE 620 MILES TO RAISE FUNDS FOR CHALLENGED ATHLETES
Miami, FL (June 17, 2015) – Cliff Drysdale Management, the nation’s leading tennis management company announced that DiAnna Drysdale, their lifestyle magazine’s managing editor and wife of Cliff Drysdale, the company’s founder, will participate in the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s Million Dollar Challenge this October.
The Million Dollar Challenge is a 620 mile journey down the California coastline from San Francisco to San Diego held October 10th -16th of this year. This is a weeklong event filled with incredible scenery and epic daily mileage. The fundraising goal of the event is $1 million and aims to build a community of athletes with a deep and lasting appreciation for life- and for those who overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges to live life to the fullest.
“The Challenged Athletes Foundation is a cause that has been near and dear to my heart for over a decade,” stated Drysdale. “I have been an avid fitness enthusiast my entire life, from road running, cycling and triathlons to pilates and yoga, and of course, tennis! My goal is to personally raise at least $12,500. This opportunity to help children, adults, and especially our military personnel, veterans and first responders with physical challenges in need of prosthetics, training and therapy is inspiring and life changing for all of us."
Drysdale will share updates on fundraising progress, her training regimen and fitness and nutrition tips on social media under the hashtag campaign #milliondollardianna. She will integrate a comprehensive approach to her regimen including daily cycling, running, tennis, strength training, yoga and pilates.
