The Team

Katherine Farmer is a native of Madison, Connecticut, where she graduated from Daniel Hand High School in 2003. She holds a B.S. from Bates College in Maine, with a major in biology with a minor in French. While at Bates, she was a member of the lacrosse team and spent much of her free time outside hiking, running and skiing, but never took up cycling. She is excited to support such a great cause while spending her summer outdoors on a bike!

Andrew Cathers was born in Orange, California, and grew up in Coventry, Rhode Island. He attended Bishop Hendricken High School in Warwick, RI, and graduated in 2004. In 2008, he graduated from Providence College with a B.S. in Biology and a Liberal Arts Honors Degree. He grew up playing football and baseball and now he enjoys bass guitar, mountain biking, and combat sports. He is excited for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help others while seeing the breadth of the United States.

Anthony Faustini grew up in Orange, Connecticut and attended Amity High School. He earned his Bachelor of Science and Doctorate in Pharmacy at the University of Connecticut. Anthony is trained as an EMT and has a passion for the outdoors. He is looking forward to meeting new people and seeing the country while supporting a wonderful cause.

Ross Bickford grew up in Granby, Connecticut and attended the University of Connecticut as an undergraduate where he majored in Molecular and Cell Biology and minored in Physiology and Neurobiology.

Ross is thrilled that he will have the opportunity to once again raise money for a charitable cause while meeting new people and seeing the country.
