About 2022 Mission Ride

    Mission Ride is back! 

    The UHCCF Mission Ride is back after a two-year hiatus, and we are so excited to welcome you with big Texan hospitality. Take a ride through history as we hit the scenic greenways that run alongside Spanish Missions and the beautiful San Antonio River. This is not a race, but a ride, so take in the scenery and stop to take pictures. Best of all, your participation helps UHCCF provide medical grants to kids in the central region.

The Mission Ride Story

After two successful rides and a 2-year pause, the UHCCF Mission Ride returns to historic San Antonio and continues its mission to support children during their time of medical need. The 2022 UHCCF Mission Ride is one of the UHCCF Hope Rides Cycling Series which included five cycling rides and one Fat Tire Bike event.

This year you can join us as we ride through some of San Antonio’s most scenic and historic areas including the San Antonio Missions National Historic Park and along both the San Antonio and Medina River areas. You’ll enjoy wide vistas and local flora and fauna along the local greenway paths looping around the city. Come join local riders in San Antonio or ride virtually with friends and family anywhere  from around the country and around the world. You won't want to miss this amazing scenic backdrop for this cycling event and will definitely want to stick around for that famous San Antonio hospitality and cuisine.

Meet Gabriel

Gabriel was diagnosed with Branchiootorenal (BOR) syndrome before he was born. He’s our miracle baby, as we were told by multiple doctors throughout the pregnancy that his condition was not compatible with life (without kidneys the baby’s lungs would not be able to develop properly). Even at our last ultrasound at 40 weeks, doctors were unable to see any kidneys and we were told that if Gabriel did survive, he would most likely need dialysis and a kidney transplant before the age of 5. Thankfully Gabriel is a stubborn little boy and was determined to prove everyone wrong. He’s now an incredibly healthy, bright, precocious 6-year-old with two kidneys (no dialysis or transplant were needed) and has handled his hearing loss like a champ. Gabriel first started wearing hearing aids at the age of 3 months and used that pair until he was 5 years old, at which point they stopped working properly. The grant from UHCCF was used to help purchase a new pair of hearing aids with updated technology that we hope will last another 5 years!
