Riding in Memory of Annie and Bob!

<h1>Maureen/ Mimi O'Donoghue's Fundraising Page (2012)</h1>

Hi Everyone, Once again I am getting ready to ride in the Tri-State Trek fundraiser to raise money to fund research in an effort to find a cure (or even a treatment) for ALS. This will be my fourth time riding. Last year I rode all three days for the first time but there was a heat wave and they pulled us off the course early one day so this year I am really hoping to do all 270 miles (as opposed to 240 last year)! I have been focusing on training for the ride so far but now it is time for me to knuckle down and and get to the work of fundraising! As many of you know, ALS is a very debilitating neuro muscular disease which currently has no cure. My sister Annie was diagnosed with ALS in late 2007 and passed away in 2008 after a very short yet devastating illness. My cousin Bob also passed away from ALS this past year after a five year progression of the disease, this was doubly difficult for our family as it brought back all the frustration and sadness of losing Annie, and now Bob too. ALS can progress quickly or slowly but either way it dramatically effects the course of one's life and at this point people with ALS have little hope in the way of viable treatments or cure options. Please join me in helping to give people with ALS a fighting chance.
