Chuck's 2014 Tri-State Trek's Fundraising Page
June 2014 will be my 8th consecutive year! Be a part of our continued success.
We started TEAM AMERICA back in 2007 - 2 guys and a challenge - ride bikes 270 miles because ALS sucks and we have the chance to inspire others to join us in our effort to cure our friend Steve. That's us with Steve in the picture above, taken at the amazing BBQ at the end of the ride back in 2007.
Fast forward and to date, TEAM AMERICA has raised over $200,000 and I'm happy to say that Steve is alive and well in spite of ALS! Unfortunately, ALS is still just as awful as it was back in 2007, so we're going to make sure we CRUSH it again in 2014 so the ALS Therapy Development Institute can hire more scientists, buy more ALS researching robots and cure ALS once and for all. This will also be my first year flying back from Seattle, WA - our new home - to make it happen, and here's hoping the hills of the Pacific Northwest help to get me back in shape in time for this year's ride at the end of June.
Please help me reach my goal and support the efforts of TEAM AMERICA 2014 by making a donation at the link below.
Three quick facts about ALS:
- ALS is a horrible, terrible very bad disease.
- ALS paralyzes patients from the eyes down, robbing them of their ability to move, speak and breathe without machines.
- Steve Saling is a good friend of mine, has ALS and inspires me every single day. Can you imagine having a positive attitude about life and the possibilities of overcoming ALS with technology when you're confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak on your own?
The Tri-State Trek is super challenging, but ALS will always be harder. THANK YOU for your continued support – TEAM AMERICA wouldn’t be a success story without YOU.
