~ Theodore Roosevelt
2019 is here! The 3rd annual charity ride is gearing up for another action packed summer!
June - July, with other special dates & appearances, Colorado Captain will embark on the 3rd annual Cap Across America motorcycle charity ride. The mission is to make a difference by spreading smiles one person at a time, and my goal is to support, promote, and protect civil rights, human rights, and children's causes across the nation. Throughout the trip, Cap will stop at various ComicCons, charity rides, hospitals and refugee rescue headquarters, ALL in order to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer charity Cap for Kids, while also promoting important charities such as the IRC, Tour of Honor, HopeKids, Trans Lifeline, & Rock the Vote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🏔🇺🇸 “Great Divide Ride”🏔🇺🇸 is going to be a little different than my previous trips. Where years prior saw me on the road for many months at a time, this campaign will serve as a “prolonged season” of small trips punctuated by the exhilarating and PACKED months of June & July. THIS years Cap Across America is dedicated to primarily visiting my brethren out west, across and around the Rocky Mountains, hence the title: “Great Divide Ride.” With any luck, however, I’ll still be running into many of my old friends from the past two charity rides as I seek to reach as many stops as possible along the path to my final Con of the year: NewYorkComicCon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This year has already brought some interesting challenges, as well as some phenomenal blessings. My heart swells to think of the avalanche of love that I saw from all of you during my trip last year. ☺️❤️ Thanks to you, we successfully raised $8500 in pediatric cancer relief and also helped to lift up the spirits of human being across our nation. I owe to each and every one of you more than mere words, and with pride I make you a solemn vow to never stop fighting to be worthy of the goodness I. Your hearts, because you have not only touched my heart, by the hearts of a nation. 2018 was an insane success, and I look forward to this next tremendous adventure with all of you!
Join the fight against pediatric cancer!
CAP for Kids
Colorado Captain - Cap Across America
Ride for Pediatric Cancer
Help Colorado Captain raise $10,000 as he visits states across the nation in a cross country motorcycle trip, bringing smiles to as many hospitals as possible. ALL donations benefit CAP for Kids, and supports families fighting Pediatric Cancer!
- CAP for Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which seeks to bring hope and cheer to children with cancer, and their families. They do this by bringing children who are fighting cancer face to face with their favorite comic and pop culture heroes and also by providing financial and emotional support to the immediate families of the afflicted children. CAP for Kids sponsors several families each year to help them with the huge financial and emotional strain that this terrible disease puts on them. This year, CAP for Kids will be opening up its program to benefit children and families nation wide. Join the fight, and help Colorado Captain & CAP for Kids give childhood cancer "the old one-two."
Other Causes We Believe In
Tour of Honor
Cap Across America also raises awareness for
The Tour of Honor Motorcycle Ride
Honoring our Veterans is a great reason to hit the open road. ToH supports our nation's heroes, and contributes to charities that care for our troops. The event is a season-long, self-directed ride to memorials and monuments around the continental U.S., Alaska and Hawaii.
All profits from ToH get divided equally between the three charities:
International Rescue Committee
Cap Across America also raises awareness for The IRC, in support of Syrian war refugees.
- Shield Against Hate -
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
- Help Colorado Captain & IRC spread hope and inspire thousands as he travels across the United States to support Syrian refugees trying to relocate and live peaceful lives in the land of opportunity. The civil war in Syria and its escalating refugee crisis is the worst humanitarian disaster of our time. About 11 million Syrians – almost half of the population – have been displaced since the Arab Spring began in March 2011. These people need a new place to call home, to raise their families and forge a future with hope and dignity. America, we must put aside fears and prejudices and welcome Syrian refugees with every effort we can muster because, first and foremost, they are human beings.
Cap Across America also raises awareness for Trans Lifeline, in support of health and identity.
"What you're seeing is a profound recognition on the part of the American people that LGBT persons are our brothers, our sisters, our children, our cousins, our friends, our co-workers, and that they've got to be treated like every other American. And I think that principle will win out.”
Trans Lifeline is a national trans-led 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality of trans lives by responding to the critical needs of our community with direct service, material support, advocacy, and education. Our vision is to fight the epidemic of trans suicide and improve overall life-outcomes of trans people by facilitating justice-oriented, collective community aid.
Cap Across America also raises awareness for Heart Crate, providing geeky relief to abused, neglected and underprivileged kids.
“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
~ Nelson Mandela
Heart Crate is a nonprofit organization with the mission to provide relief, identity, and connection to children who are underprivileged or have been impacted by trauma. How you might ask? Personalized boxes of geeky toys, books, and games they’ll love!
Heart Crate believes this is a missing piece to the trauma puzzle. When a child experiences a traumatic event or is placed outside of their home, they often have nothing but a few personal effects. Sometimes they arrive with only a trash bag of clothes and are sent to an empty room with almost nothing to their name. Heart Crate aims to remedy that by giving children high quality items personalized based on their interests.
