Mike's Ride for PALS' Fundraising Page (2011)
Where Are the Drugs, Man?
This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. Please support my efforts. Like I said, where are the drugs, man? TDI is going to find them soon.
This is my second sojourn to the sultry New England area for the 270 mile ride from Boston to NY (with the finish in Greenwich CT). Just a note; last year I went off course twice adding approximately 30 miles onto my ride. So I did an even 300.
I'm asking you all again, my friends, family, enemies and escorts to sponsor my ride for ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI). Our lab receives 83% of every dollar raised for this ride. Compare that against any other fundraising effort, and you will find that is very high. This is why Charity Navigator again gave ALS TDI the highest rating (4 stars).
Please give at any level you think is within your ability. When doing so, remember that each minute of research in our drug development program is $100. the more minutes funded, the more research performed. If you wish to fund a quarter of a minute, or one-half of a minute that would be wonderful. If you are capable of funding more minutes, please do so. My request would be that start at $50-$100 and move in the direction you are comfortable with.
Thanks for your friendship and support, and thanks for supporting ALS research.
P.S. Heading out tomorrow and I still have a bunch of donations yet to come. I'm hoping to top $4,000 when its all said and done. thanks to all of my friends and family for their support.
