Fighting for those who no longer can.
ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis aka Lou Gehrig’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that leads to paralysis, due to the death of motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain. There is no known cause or cure.
At 12 years old, I volunteered for my 1st Tri State Trek, a 3-day, 270-mile bicycle ride focused on ending ALS.
I rang cowbells for my dad, a rider, and for his dad who we lost a few years prior
This year, at 22, I will be returning for my 10th Trek. (All the way from California!)
This year, not only will I be there volunteering for my dad and my grandfather, but for the countless number of patients, loved ones of PALS, scientists, and friends who I have had the honor of meeting in these last 10 years.
The Tri State Trek is so much more than just a charity event. It is a family. A family of incredible individuals all brought together by this horrible disease. Inspiring individuals who, year after year, stand up and fight for those who no longer can. I am humbled to be among them.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page and for considering making a donation. Every little bit helps.
