Steve Latimer's Ride For ALS' Fundraising Page

270 miles-Boston to NY

This will be my fifth year being involved in the Tri State Trek.  Many of you have previously received my request for support for this event, which supports ALS Therapy Development Institute (, the Boston-based non-profit biotech research firm, dedicated to finding a cure for ALS.

Those diagnosed with ALS generally live 2-5 years after first being diagnosed.  There are 6,000 new diagnoses each year and 30,000 people living with the disease in the U.S.  Because of these small numbers of cases relative to the population, dollars available for research, particularly from public sources, is severally limited.  Hence the need for private fundraising such as the Trek to provide significant additional support for research.

The Tri State Trek consists of a 280-mile bike ride undertaken over three days from Boston, through the rolling hills of Connecticut and New York and ending in downtown Greenwich.  Last year, my training for the ride was interrupted by a crash due to an untimely opening of a truck door, resulting in stitches, bruises and a concussion that prevented me from riding.

This year, my schedule and, honestly, my dampened enthusiasm for getting back out into the traffic, has led me to a different commitment to the Trek.  I plan to “ride” the 280 miles on my Peloton bike between May 1 and June 30.  Those who have a Peloton bike can track my progress.  My user name is splat1957.  Or, if you have the Stava app, I can be followed there as well.

I am humbly asking for your support.  Despite not being physically a part of the three day ride, the research being undertaken by ALS TDI is too important for me to stop supporting it.  The ride contributes almost 10% to the operating revenues to the company and my team, Crush ALS/Team Bannon, raised over $200,000 last year.  Thanks to your support, I personally raised over $37,000.

For this year’s ride, I am personally pledging to match dollar for dollar all contributions I receive.

Please log on to my fundraising page at to contribute.  Many of you are business associates as well as friends.  My compliance department would appreciate it if you would limit your contribution to $1,000.   

I am very appreciative of your support.
