Craig Dodson up for CNN Hero of the Year

Last May, Richmond Cycling Corps founder Craig Dodson was selected as a “CNN HEROES” story. Last week, it was announced that Dodson was one of the top 10 CNN Heroes of 2016 and up for the “CNN Hero of the Year” award and a $100,000 prize:

Craig Dodson was a semi-professional cyclist in 2005 when he was asked to speak to a group of students in Richmond, Virginia. He later learned that many in the crowd lived in one of the city’s roughest housing projects.

Inspired to help, Dodson founded the Richmond Cycling Corps in 2010, a nonprofit that coaches cycling teams for at-risk children. For Dodson, cycling is a way into their lives and a path out of the projects.

“We are like the Navy SEALs,” Dodson said. “We have to infiltrate and be there for every part of their life.”
