2018 Road to Discovery Bike Ride

Students from ESTEEM (Engineering, Science, & Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence Master’s Program) at Notre Dame organized the 2018 Road To Discovery event: a four-day bike ride that followed Coach Ara Parseghian’s collegiate coaching career.  The ride took place on May 13 – 17, 2018, and started in Oxford, OH, headed through Indianapolis, IN on the way to to Chicago, Ill., and then concluded at Notre Dame.

The goal of the annual Road to Discovery bike rides are to raise funds and awareness for the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Fund (APMRF) at Notre Dame, which is dedicated to finding a treatment or cure for Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC) disease. Throughout the history of these rides we have visited over 150 cities, held over 125 events, been featured in myriad news stories and articles, and raised more than $2 million for NPC disease research.

This was the 8th annual Road to Discovery bike ride, and the students raised over $150,000.  Please consider supporting the students fundraising efforts by making a gift today.  You can sponsor them for the 400 mile ride by making a gift at the following levels:
