Van Purser has touched many lives throughout North Georgia and beyond. Devoted family man, spiritual counselor, business leader, and cycling advocate, his impact is broadly and deeply felt. On September 19, 2019 Van's battle with the ravages of ALS ended. Surrounded by a multitude of family and friends Van passed graciously from this world into the arms of God. To sustain his voice and to honor his legacy, the Van Purser Foundation (VPF) has been created.
The Van Purser Foundation is a non-profit charitable corporation (501(c)3), created by a group of caring cyclists, so that we might pour out into others just as Van has poured out into us. Our mission, simply, is to pull together to assist other cyclists in times of need.
Learn how the Van Purser Foundation assisted our fellow cyclist, Kako Balla, in his and his family's time of need @ YouTube.
Domestique Leadership was created from a desire to impact the cycling community in a way that will positively affect not only those we ride with, but also the communities that we ride in.
Domestique Leadership embraces the vision of leaders serving the rides they participate in by serving the needs of those we ride with, and the needs of the communities we ride in. By embracing this vision we all can serve the needs of one another as well as our local communities. We believe we will be able to create safer environments for cycling and diminish the conflicts that occur in the communities we travel.
