Mick Walsh, Coup de Cascades winner 2011 - Ultra Marathon Cycling

Mick Walsh, is the 1st winner of the Inaugural Coup de Cascade 425 mile Ultra Marathon Cycling Event. We are proud and so impressed with Mick's courage and determination. He completed the 419 grueling miles in 30:20 an impressive time. Most of the 30 hours were dry and fast conditions, but towards the end, going over Hwy 2 the roads got a little damp for about an hour. The sky cleared and all was good as Mick cruised into the finishline and all his newest fans... As fate would have it we are now talking to the people at RAAM, Race Across America, to see about this race being a pre-qualifier for them. 

The Redmond Rousers Rotary Club is proud to be the Main sponsor of the Coup de Cascades this year. Current president Kelly Kyle, also stepped up to be the "Official Race Chairman" and biggest financial supporter to help the club with all the first year details. Many other members stepped up to donate time to the event too. Scott Bell, of Media design Seattle, designed the logos and Blaine Millet, of WOM10,  helpped with website design and social media.

WHAT IS POLIO?..... How to help during our Coup de Cascades event

How can YOU help ???
Please make a 10. 00, 20.00, 50.00  donation to
the Redmond Rousers Rotary
a 501 c 3 Foundation
to help eradicate POLIO NOW!

Polio is:

  • A crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, polio (poliomyelitis) still strikes children mainly under the age of five in countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
  • Polio can cause paralysis and sometimes death. Because there is no cure for polio, the best protection is prevention. For as little as US$0.60 worth of vaccine, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life.
  • It can cause paralysis within hours, and polio paralysis is almost always irreversible.
  • In the most severe cases, polio attacks the motor neurons of the brain stem, causing breathing difficulty or even death.
  • Historically, polio has been the world’s greatest cause of disability.
If polio isn’t eradicated, the world will continue to live under the threat of the disease. More than 10 million children will be paralyzed in the next 40 years if the world fails to capitalize on its US$5 billion global investment in eradication.
