Riding for Mr. Muccio and every ALS fighter
This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. My best friend's father, Fran Muccio, was diagnosed with ALS in 1999 and fought the disease for 10 strong years. Some of the fondest memories I have of Mr. Mooch are of him cheering on Christina at our gymnastics meets. Before every event Christina competed, I would hear "GOOOO CHRISTINA" in a loud and encouraging voice. He was her biggest fan and supporter.
Now, I feel that it is my turn to support him and everyone who is fighting or has fought ALS. Fran, and the entire Muccio family, have thought me more about mental and physical toughness than anyone. With Christina, and TEAM AMERICA by my side I am looking forward to the 270 mile challenge, and am confident that I will enjoy every mile of it knowing that we are making a difference and are riding closer and closer to a cure!
