Former motocross athlete and recovering quadriplegic, Aaron Baker, will grease his bike gears and ride across America in the "Trans America Trail Ride" to raise money for C.O.R.E. Baker, the founder of C.O.R.E. Inc. (Center of Rehabilitative Exercise) and the Rise Above Tour fundraiser event, will depart from Los Angeles, CA on June 8, 2008 on a 4,200 mile, 4 month bike trek to Washington D.C. with his mother, Laquita, and sister, Arielle. With Baker in the lead, The Rise Above Tour '08 hopes to peddle its way to its goal of $1,000,000 benefiting the construction and maintenance of C.O.R.E. facilities throughout the United States.

C.O.R.E. provides extended care and exercise therapy to people with disabilities after they have been released from primary medical care. C.O.R.E. is committed to changing perceptions regarding the ongoing treatment and management of catastrophic injury and chronic conditions. "C.O.R.E is dedicated to each client using a scientific approach towards the development of personalized goals," says Baker overflowing with pride.

The 29-year-old youth world motocross champion and renowned professional biker is on the road to recovery after suffering a debilitating spinal cord injury in 1999 that left him paralyzed. Baker is spearheading a movement of hope, caring, and assistance through the Rise Above Tour for individuals that need therapeutic rehabilitation. The athlete, and former quadriplegic, has overcome tremendous odds despite being told 8 years ago that he would have a 1 in one million chance of ever feeding himself again, let alone walking.

"I envision an abundance of opportunities for my fellow friends who suffer. C.O.R.E is a common place where he/she can improve the quality of their life through exercise and inspiration. Our goal is to provide this opportunity," said Baker about his vision for C.O.R.E., which he hopes will expand nationwide.
