Howling Halloween Hundred

GCSS is partnering with Challenged Child and Friends, Inc. for our first Annual Howling Halloween Hundred cycling event! Proceeds from this event go to both organizations and will benefit Georgia adults and children with Developmental Disabilities.
Our registration site is currently up and running at
Active.com: Howling Halloween Hundred.

We handed out 1,000 Flyers at the Cartersville Century Ride and another 600 at a Tri 2 Remember Triathlon in Gainesville this past weekend. We will be distributing flyers to 2600 riders at the Six Gap Century Ride on September 26, 3000 athletes at the Augusta Half Ironman on September 26, 1,000 riders at the Tour de Pink Century Ride on October 16th, and 1,000 riders at the Spin for Kids Century Ride on October 23rd.

Additionally, packets went out today/tomorrow to all bike shops in Georgia and we personally delivered posters and flyers to all bike shops within 35 miles of Gainesville yesterday.

Any help you can provide us with distributing this information to your sphere of influence would be greatly appreciated. For more information on the bike ride or to print out a flyer for distribution click here or you can forward the image above to your email list.

If you would like to volunteer for this event or if you know an individual or group that would like to volunteer for this event, please let the Community Relations department know before October 22nd.  Also, if you know someone who would like to have a vendor booth at the Family Festival, please have them contact Amanda Duckworth at 404-634-4222 ext. 237.

Thanks for all of your help and we hope to see you on October 30th!

About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
