The 8th Annual Katie Ride/Walk for Life will be held April 21st on Amelia Island. The event raises money and awareness  for the Katie Caples Foundation. The foundation was started in 1998 by the family of Katie Caples, a young high school student from Jacksonville who became an organ and tissue donor after not surviving the trauma of an automobile accident. The cycling event offers courses of varying distance from 7 to 100 miles with full support along the way. The Katie Walk offers a 5K and 10K course through beautiful Fort Clinch State Park. Funds raised by both events help to promote organ and tissue donation and deliver important educational programs to high school freshman and sophomores. Residence Inn Amelia Island supports this worthy cause and have partnered with the Katie Caples Foundation by offering discounted rates for those needing accommodations the weekend of the race. Call now to book your stay and lend a hand in keeping the memory of Katie Caples alive.
