Peter Fortier's Fundraising Page

Riding for those who no longer can

<h1>Peter Fortier's Fundraising Page</h1>

In the summer of 2015 the "Ice Bucket Challenge"  in effort to raise money for ALS research went viral! I participated along with many friends and family to raise money for a good cause and have some fun. I had no way of knowing my brother in law, Ernie Fournier., would soon be diagnosed with ALS. In the fall of 2015 Ernie was diagnosed with ALS. All of of sudden this illness became very real for me. Ernie's has been inspiring as he battles this awful disease. Although he has lost his ability to speak, as well as many other physical limitations, he greets everyone with a smile and a hug and is "fighting a good fight". The research being done to find a cure for ALS is aggressive, but it is costly. On June 23 I will be riding in the ALS Tri-State Trek for the 2nd year. The day one ride is about 105 miles from Boston College to UCONN, Storrs. I've started training, and "hardening my seat". I humbly ask for your support. Please know any amount will be greatly appreciated. I also ask for your prayers for the success of this fund raising event and all those who are fighting the good fight against ALS. Please know you can contact me if you have any questions about ALS or the Tri State Trek. Blessing to all.
