Dream Team History on BRAG 2021

After a pandemic year that prevented any BRAG events in 2020, the BRAG Dream Team came back strong with three siblings who made BRAG Dream Team history in June 2021 when they the first set of triplets - Kaitlyn, Kyle and Kaleb, completed the BRAG adventure that started in another state - Chattanooga, TN and ended one week later in Columbus, GA. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Triplets with Coach Eddie and Alumni Leader Noah

As members of the Gullah Geechee Dream Team Club based in Brunswick, GA, the three siblings had been training for a year by leading monthly Community Bike Rides and also participating in Dream Team training rides to St. Simon's Island or Jekyll Island.  They also trained in Augusta and in Atlanta at the 2021 Velocity Bike Ride to benefit Grady Hospital.

Monthly Saturday Community Ride

Sponsored by the Gullah Geechee Club

Brunswick Community Bike Ride

These safe, socially distant, small rides support Ahmaud Arbery's family in their fight for justice.  The rides start and end at Howard Coffin Park in Brunswick each month on a Saturday morning at 9 am or 10 am.

The Geechee Kunda Dream Team Club created a new jersey that features the Ahmaud Arbery mural and the group of community participants, including Arbery family members, on the monthly bike ride.

In May 2021 the jersey was presented to members of the Arbery family as a gift from the Gullah Geechee Dream Team Club and they were extremely grateful.
