END ALS

<h1>Follow Me's Fundraising Page (2015)</h1>

Many of you visiting this page are already familiar with the Tri State Trek, a 270 mile bicycle ride focused on ending ALS. ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis aka Lou Gehrig’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that leads to paralysis, due to the death of motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain. There is currently no known cause, cure, or effective treatment for the disease. This will be our tenth year riding the event since this horrible disease took my fathers life. For those of you here for the first time, this is not just a ride to raise money, it’s a fight for the families we have met along the way. It’s a show of support for the victims of this horrible disease…and to me personally it is a tribute to my dad that he is still an influence in our hearts. I consider ALSTDI and its supporters an extension of my family, and we will go this distance and further to help this cause.

Thank you for your support,
The Rubenstein Family & Team Follow Me

The team name, Follow Me on the surface is a private acknowledgment to my father. The nickname was humorously bestowed upon my dad by some very dear family friends just due to his nature of always wanting to lead the group…understandably so as the father of 5 children. The story is simple, and still brings a smile to my mother’s face.

However, it is more than just a tribute. It’s about the life philosophy of do as I do. Do, not because anybody is watching, but because you know it makes a difference. Set the example, be something others aspire too. It’s about the support and encouragement you can offer at the very moment it presents itself. It is about unselfish extension of you, to help others…follow me…
