Chief Fagan and the 600-mile Coastal Bike Cruise to Support the Arthritis Foundation

by Lead Deputy District Attorney Doug Poston

A number of you may remember that earlier this year, Chief DDA Fagan committed to riding his bicycle nearly six hundred miles, from San Francisco to Los Angeles, to raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation.  Because we all know how leisurely a costal bike cruise can be, (I mean, who hasn’t ridden a bike on the paths of Newport or Huntington Beaches, right?) I issued the challenge to Gary, to make the ride more fun and interesting for all involved, to ride at least a hundred miles wearing a rainbow clown wig! 

In exchange, the staff of the then-Hospitality Lane office committed to donating up to $1,000 toward Gary’s fundraising goal of $3100. 

I’m very glad to report that many of you, including our own DA Mike Ramos and his Executive Staff, eagerly and generously responded. Gary accepted the challenge, and raised over $3,600, well above his goal!

Last week, I purchased and delivered to our Chief his very own, personalized, one-size-fits-all rainbow clown wig, and, I’m now even more pleased to report that the first of the evidentiary photos are in---Gary indeed is meeting the challenge!
