ROTH Capital Partners Teams Up with Challenged Athletes Foundation for 3rd Annual ROTH Ride, March 9th, 2014

ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), a relationship-driven investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, will partner with the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) for the 3rd Annual ROTH Ride as the kick-off event to its 26th Annual Growth Stock Conference March 9-12, 2014 at The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, California. The ride will take place on Sunday, March 9 departing from the Bike Religion Dana Point store location at 9:00 a.m.

The 41 mile bike ride from Dana Point through the town of San Clemente, featuring picturesque views of San Onofre State Beach, will benefit CAF, a world leader in helping individuals with physical challenges get involved and stay involved in sports. ROTH Conference attendees will have the opportunity to ride side-by-side with CAF’s Sarah Reinertsen, Mike Johnston, Eric McElvenny, Steven Peace and Eduardo Garcia. Eduardo Garcia is an avid outdoorsman and sporting enthusiast who lost his left hand in a traumatic electrocution accident in 2011. Despite his life-altering trauma, he has re-discovered his rhythm and passion for life. He is a true role model of resilience and positivity to anyone that has faced a challenge and overcome it.

"We are inspired and proud to be teaming up with CAF again this year for the 3rd Annual ROTH Ride. Together CAF and ROTH developed a Duane Roth legacy fund to continue to help challenged athletes in the sport of cycling which he loved so much," said Byron Roth, CEO of ROTH. "This is an event that our conference attendees look forward to each year to kick-off our flagship conference. Over half of this year’s riders have been on one or both of the previous year’s rides.”

At last year’s ROTH Ride 75 cyclists raised approximately $50,000 in support of CAF’s mission to help people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics.

Bike Religion’s ride leadership and logistical support combined with top-of-the-line bikes provided by Cannondale and Felt will make it a worthwhile experience for first timers and experienced cyclists alike. Additional bike ride sponsors include: Coastal.com, Equisolve, Pulse Beverages, REED’s, Skullcandy, ZAGG, Delta Apparel and Pactimo.
