The funds raised with this event assists the Foundation’s program that is directed at educating people about organ donation. The Foundation was established in honor of 17 year-old Katie Caples. Driving home on 18th April, 1998 from Jacksonville, Katie was involved in a terrible accident and succumbed to her injuries. But before her death, she donated her organs and this brave decision resulted in 5 recipients getting a new lease at life. This heroic story has inspired many other people to make the same decision and donate their organs after their death.
At Shift Cycle Wear, we are proud to be associated with the Katie Caples Foundation and prouder still that we have been assigned the privileged task of creating the official men’s jersey for the 2014 event. These jerseys are made with a polyester/spandex blend fabric that allows ventilation and lets you move without restriction. It also wicks away sweat from your body and dries efficiently and instantly. Added to that is the excellent UV protection it provides that makes it ideal for outdoor activities.
