Riding for Those Who Can't

<h1>Team Sepucha's Fundraising Page (2015)</h1>

This summer, Laura, Dave and Bobby are riding 270 miles to honor our father, Bob Sepucha, and find an effective treatment for ALS. Please join us in our fight to end this disease and ensure that no one else has to endure what Dad did.

That’s Dad to the left. In the spring of 2010, he was diagnosed with ALS. At the time, all we knew of the disease was that its full name was nearly impossible to pronounce and that someone as strong as Lou Gehrig was unable to beat it. Less than four years later, our father is gone and we know more – much more – about this horrible disease than we ever wished.

ALS claims thousands of new victims each year. It typically starts with muscle weakness and spreads at varying speeds. Eventually, total paralysis sets in. But even as the brain continues to function normally, the disease exacts an enormous physical and emotional toll. ALS does not just destroy the body; it attacks the spirit as well.

But as awful as ALS is, Dad never let it change him. There were certainly times when we were worried it had crushed him. But in the end, he remained who he always was – the smartest, bravest, strongest man in the world. He stayed our Dad.

Now that he’s gone, we swore we would join the effort to find a cure. That’s why we’re riding from Boston to New York this June. We ride to raise money to fund cutting edge research. We ride to honor those who have bravely fought this disease and those whose fight continues to this day.

But most of all, we ride because Dad can’t.

Please join us. Donate today and join the ride against ALS.
