Team David

Meet Team David

I am a Native Vermonter.   I have always been active in sports and Nature.  After Graduating from Spaulding High School in 1970, I joined the United States Marine Corp and served in Vietnam.

I am semi-retired, working part time at a transition house for young men 18-24 returning to the community from jail. The focus is on helping them get back on track by giving them structure and support.  I also volunteer at the Barre Community Justice Center as well as a local elementary school.

In my life, I have been greatly blessed and believe it's important to give back when you can.  My intention is to ride up the Mount Washington Auto Road on a handcycle un-assisted.  Two years ago, I almost made it.  I ask that you support our team in an effort to raise money to benefit adaptive athletes of the North Country.

I don't like leaving things unfinished.  I have attempted the Sunrise Ascent twice before.

This year I intend to complete the Ascent.
