TEAM AMERICA 2011's Fundraising Page (2011)

Inspired by Steve Saling and working together to cure ALS.

<h1>TEAM AMERICA 2011's Fundraising Page (2011)</h1>

This summer, TEAM AMERICA will be participating in the 2011 Tri-State Trek, a three-day, 270 mile bike ride from Boston to New York benefiting the ALS Therapy Development Institute, the world's leading ALS research center.

This will be TEAM AMERICA's 5th consecutive year participating in the ride and to date, the team has raised over $85,000 to help cure ALS.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a neuro-degenerative disease that paralyzes the entire body and disables the speech of the individual while leaving the mind intact. ALS can strike anyone and roughly 30,000 Americans are currently living with the disease, our friend Steve Saling among them. Steve was diagnosed with ALS in the fall of 2006. Since then, the more we have learned about ALS the more eager we've become to support the efforts to combat it.

Steve's ongoing goal since he was diagnosed has been to enjoy every single day to the fullest and to help those in the ALS community and beyond to do the same. Steve is a retired architect and is a co-founder of America's only ALS Residence and the first fully automated, vent-ready ALS Residence in the world. As he often says, "Until medicine proves otherwise, technology IS the cure." The Grand Opening of the Steve Saling ALS Residence was on August 13, 2010 and included a ribbon cutting by Governor Deval Patrick and a personal address by Professor Stephen Hawking. He made the front pages of The Boston Globe and his local paper the next day.

Steve's new home is part of the ALS Residence Initiative (ALSRI), an organization he founded dedicated to providing patients with ALS the previously impossible opportunity to live in relative independence and remain a productive member of society with state-of-the-art technology and a dedicated staff.

Steve's positive attitude and commitment to redefining what it means to live with ALS has been a true inspiration for each of us and has helped people within the ALS community to maintain a positive outlook on what is possible in life. In May 2010, Steve visited Hingham High School and the classroom of Team America rider Dana McNamee to speak with students about ALS and to remind them that "life is good." His visit was covered by The Boston Globe in the following article that highlights another example of Steve giving back to the community.

Life is good, ALS patient tells Hingham High students

The Tri-State Trek is about overcoming challenges and obstacles. It is about inspiring ourselves and inspiring others. It is about pushing beyond our own comfort zone physically, mentally, emotionally, and above all to raise money and awareness for ALS and the ALS TDI. Please click on the link below for more information about the event.
