Jack Sherrer, M.D. of Columbus, Georgia is the founder of Pedaling for Kids. Dr. Sherrer has long been an advocate for children and especially children with disabilities. His own experiences with an employee’s child with a life-threatening illness and with his oldest son who suffered with a severe illness for years stimulated a movement to aggressively come to the aid of other children in need in his community.
With an annual spring ride in Columbus and an across-the-state ride in the fall as the charity’s main fund-raising events, Pedaling for Kids raises funds to provide children with disabilities in Columbus and the surrounding communities needed items for their home, for their education and for their comfort – needs that often cannot be met by our present governmental, insurance and community systems.
