Uphill Into the Wind, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, was founded in honor of Bob Griffiths’ memory. Bob was a fun loving, active man who participated in charitable cycling events despite his struggle with lung disease. Uphill into the wind is how he felt whenever he rode, even if the road was flat and the wind calm. Although his breathing became labored throughout training, he pressed on. His focus was to challenge himself because he could. He knew that as he was fighting through training, those he was riding for were fighting for their lives. His spirit inspired many to join the cause and give patients a fighting chance.
