Let's Cure ALS Now!

<h1>Team Bannon's Fundraising Page (2012)</h1>


This is the fourth summer in a row that Team Bannon will ride 270 miles in three days -- from Boston to New York -- to raise funds to help find a treatment and curefor Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

We began riding in 2009, following the death of Charles J. Bannon, Lisa and Breen's brother, at the age of 44. Since then, we have met many people who have been touched by this tragic disease, which causes total paralysis, generally within five years after diagnosis.

This year Team Bannon will add a new rider: Hugh Macdonnell, of Glen Ridge, NJ, whose mother in law is also afflicted with the disease.

Thanks to all of you, we have raised more than $65,000 for ALS-TDI, the nation's leading research lab into ALS. And it is paying off: The lab has two drugs it is bringing to clinical trial in the next year that show promising signs for treatment. We would like to raise an additional $25,000 this year to see whether these drugs are effective.

Thank you, as always, for your kindness and generosity.
