HONORABLE MENTIONS

It’s been said that it takes a village to help raise a child; I’m absolutely blessed and grateful to have these amazing souls in my village. All of these amazing women have supported me, and given their time, sweat and tears to help make a dream come true:  empowering Women Who Ride.

These women truly embody the spirit of what it means to lift one another up.
