Riding for a cause


Anthony Smith is greeted by other riders Friday at La Jolla Shores as he finishes the Qualcomm Million Dollar Challenge that raises funds for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. In 2004 while serving in Iraq, Smith was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade that went through his hip and stomach before exploding. He lost his right arm below the elbow and walks with the aid of crutches. In all, 102 riders, including the riding support team, finished the 600-mile ride.
