Alex Blackburn died at age 12.  His last wish was to have his ashes spread around the world. I met this mother while biking through California and she asked me if I would fulfill his final request. Alex’s ashes have been traveling with me since 2008 during marathons and bike trips.

Alex went through a heart transplant at the age of 4 months. Consider contributing to COTA (Children’s Organ Transplant Association), an organization that assists children and their families during heart transplants.
