Riding for those who no longer can

<h1>Mark Janny's Fundraising Page</h1>

Every 90 minutes, somebody is diagnosed with ALS.13 years ago, that was my grandfather. He battled this awful disease for 18 months before we lost him. In his memory, I signed up for the Tri State Trek, a 270 mile bike ride from Boston to Greenwich,CT in 2015. This event raises awareness and money to continue research for a cure so that one day we can beat this disease. Through this event, I have met so many patients, their amazing care givers and other participants of this event that devote so much time to fundraising and raising awareness for this event and they have all changed my life and are a constant reminder as to why we all come back year after year.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons  die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

 

I can never thank those who have supported me the past 2 years enough, thanks to all of you I have personally raised over $6000 and rode over 540 miles for ALS. I ask you to consider supporting my efforts once again in hopes that one day we can end this disease once and for all.
