It was nice doing this interview after we had a month relive the stories of the race and crew. It still amazes me what a phenominal accomplishment it was for everyone and everything involved.

"I am sending a couple of strongheart pictures from RAGBRAI. Carol and I wanted to represent Team StrongHeart on Iowa’s greatest bike ride. We wore our Jersey’s on two separate days. The Jersey’s really stand out and we received some nice compliments. I have included a few of the pictures that were taken while we were showing our support for StrongHeart. Use them as you will but if you need to scare the mice out of the outhouse, maybe a picture of neil from headwaters would be better suited."

"Hello, I’m Aren Passenheim, I am a 14 year old boy from Coon Rapids, MN. Last year I was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopothy.
I went on a 225-mile bike trip with my Boy Scout troop. There were 5 scouts and 3 adults riding. There were also 2 support vehicles that allowed us to rest during the ride when needed. We started in Coon Rapids, MN and rode to Many Point Scout camp which is between Park Rapids and Detroit Lakes, MN. The first day we went about 90 miles and rode to Camp Riply, where we set up tents and spent the night. The second day we rode to Osage, which was another 110 miles. We again set up tents and camped for the night. Our last day we finished the ride to Many Point where we then spent a week camping with the rest of our troop.
No one on the trip was injured, although we were all tired and sore when we were done."
From all of us on Team Strong Heart: Congratulations Aren!
Team Strong Heart is proud to continue our support for Camp Odayin, a camp for kids with heart disease in 2008!
