Riding for those who no longer can

This summer I am riding 170 miles to find and effective treatment for ALS.  Please support my efforts.

When I heard of Bobby Forster’s ALS diagnosis I knew that there was a long hard road to finding a cure for this debilitating disease. The effects of ALS on mobility, eating and breathing and eventual paralysis can be devastating.  The ALS association notes that the average life expectancy after a diagnosis is 3-5 years.  What is remarkable about Bobby’s journey is his resolve on wanting to defeat this perfect storm. “Nothing is impossible and being scared of life is silly.”- Bobby Forster 2016. 

In June I will be participating in the ALS Tri State Trek to benefit the ALS TDI on team, ‘What about Bobby?’  Please consider making a donation to support my 170-mile bike ride. I am riding 2 of 3 days alongside our alliance of ALS warrior’s who will be riding from Newton Massachusetts to Greenwich Connecticut with a common goal of awareness, encouragement and hope to defeat ALS.

I am riding for those who no longer can!  Think about how many RPM’s are you capable of pedaling on an average daily bike ride, just because you can. Consider donating a dollar per your average RPM.   Any donation amount is appreciated to bring me to my $2,000 fundraising goal.  Reflect on the words of Lou Gehrig in 1939, - “ I might have been given a bad break, but I’ve got an awful lot to live for.”  Your help supports hope for treatment and a cure!
