Katie Bauer

- In memory of my Superman, Charles (Charlie) Bauer!

This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. Please support my efforts.  I ride in memory of Charles Roger Bauer, my husband, loving father of our now- fourteen year old daughter Grace, son to Roger and Jeanne Bauer of Texas, forever Naval shipmate, friend to many, and one of the funniest men I've ever known.  Charlie was dx with ALS in July of 2013, one month shy of his 40th birthday.  He battled this disease to the bitter end, never losing his insane sense of humor, even as the disease took every bit of function from his life - the ability to sing, to speak, to hold, to hug, to eat, to breathe, to walk, to communicate, and lastly, to live, losing his battle on October 12, 2016.  I ride because I can.  I ride because he couldn't, he can't, and now he never will - but maybe, just maybe, someone like him will be able to again, because I rode.  I ride for Charlie.  Please help me make sure his life made a difference...that he didn't suffer in vain.  Let's help find a cure for ALS.  Because we can, we must.

In Memory of my brother Carnell Rose

This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. Please support my efforts. In March 2015 ALS became more than an Ice Bucket Challenge it became personal with a diagnosis of my older brother Carnell. Up to this point it was always someone else dealing with this terrible disease. We knew little about except for the name and now my family knows the devestating effects of ALS. In April of 2017 ALS took my brother and has taken even more lives since.  Every 90 minutes or 16 people every day...5,840 a year. Your help in raising funds needed to find a cure are vital in this effort. It may not attack your loved one but you never know...we never thought it would happen to us...WE NEED YOU to donate and help fund research to find a cure..
