A cross-country biker will be passing through Northwest Colorado this week. Greg Crawford, dean of the University of Notre Dame’s College of Science is currently biking 3,500 miles across the country to raise awareness for rare disease research and is stopping in Craig tomorrow. Crawford will be biking from Granby to Craig tomorrow and should arrive in the early afternoon. He will depart early Thursday morning and bike west from Craig to Vernal. This is the second time he has biked through Craig. In 2012, Crawford came through town, promoting the fight against rare diseases. This is Crawford’s fifth and final bike ride across the U.S. in an effort to raise $1 million for rare diseases, especially those that strike young children, such as Niemann-Pick Type C disease, a rare cholesterol storage disorder that causes neurodegenerative complications that are fatal. His journey started in Long Island, New York, and will end this month in Pebble Beach, California.
