Riding for those who no longer can
This June, Team Goodfolk's Movement will once again be hitting the pavement to grind out another 270 mile bike ride. I personally will be joining the team for the second day of the ride for 91 miles. The ride begins in Boston, MA, and ends in Greenwich, CT. Though the team may be composed of different Goodfolks this year, the cause is still the same. We won't stop until a cure has been found for ALS aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a debilitating disease that as of today, has no cure. We are riding for 2 reasons: 1) To raise awareness for the disease. Most of us know Lou Gehrig, Stephen Hawking, and our hometown hero, Steve Gleason, are living with ALS. But there are countless of other brave heroes out there that are struggling and need our help as well. 2) We are riding to raise funding for ALS research, so that we can continue to develop suitable treatments that work for those affected and ultimately find a cure. The ALS Therapy Development Institute, located in Cambridge, MA, (where your donations go) has been at the forefront of developing therapies and medicines that have slowed down the effects of ALS. Each and every day the scientists and support staff are working hard and getting closer and closer to a cure.
Please join the Goodfolk’s Movement by donating to our cause and helping us blow our fundraising goal out of the water!
