"I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change.. I'm changing the things I cannot accept"
Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s a rapidly progressive and ultimately fatal disease that robs you of the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink, and eventually breathe, while leaving your fully-functioning mind trapped. There is no known cure and the disease is extremely underfunded.
As a nurse, I have seen the progression of this terrible disease and its effect on patients and families... but after experiencing the trek for the first time last year, I also observed their strength, courage and hope. This year I have decided to challenge myself to the 3-day, 270 + trek to ride in honor of those who would give anything to be doing the same.
With your help, we can accelerate the treatment and cure for ALS from decades to years, save the lives of tens of thousands of people, and find a CURE!
