Starting December 23, 2018 I publicly pledged to ride at least 20 minutes a day, six days a week for the six months leading up to the Tri State Trek. December 23 is an important date, yes it marks exactly six months to the conclusion of the 17th Tri State Trek, but it also marks a month since the passing of my friend, Amy Truman. Amy was a warrior, she battled ALS fearlessly, with grace and a positive attitude - inspiring so many. #20min4amy #endALS The goal of this venture was to raise awareness about ALS and funds for ALS TDI (als.net) to continue their research towards a cure, this is a common goal shared with the Tri State Trek. Help me support ALS.net by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause! If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page! Thanks so much for your generosity!

In Memory of Amy Truman - Jun 2, 1975 - Nov 23, 2018

Let's raise some money to end ALS!!! This is a devastating disease that has claimed my dear friend Amy Truman in November of 2018, just 5 years after her diagnosis. Amy, her husband Jeremy, her family, and all of her caregivers fought this disease every inch of the way and have been a true inspiration for everyone that knows them. Their positive attitude and refusal to submit to the disease inspires me and I think has helped make me a better person and I thank them for that. Amy ultimately succumbed to complications related to a pulmonary embolism and she leaves a large hole in our hearts, and a large impression in our memories and our motivation to fight ALS. This summer I am riding with Team Truman in the Tri-State Trek to help find an effective treatment for ALS and I would appreciate if you join me with a contribution. The group this benefits, ALS TDI (Therapy Development Institute), is a Boston based non-profit that has pursued and actually funded drug research and development that have started human trials with AT-1501 in 2018!!! ALS treatments may not offer the business return big pharma needs, but ALS TDI is making this happen through donations such as yours! They are making a difference and working to end ALS and that's why I support them with my time and energy. For 2019, I am upping my commitment to all 270 miles over 3 days, something I have never done. In the first year, I rode 97 miles, but last year I did a 2 day total of 200 miles and did my first "century". I am looking forward to honoring all contributions with a dedication to train and ride more than I ever have before. We met the Truman's about 7 years ago just after we moved to Connecticut and they were the most positive and happy people we had met yet. A little more than 5 years ago, Amy was diagnosed with ALS and between her and her family and especially Jeremy, they met this challenge head on in all ways possible. The picture is of Amy and Jeremy with a bond and love between them that we would all be so lucky to experience once in our lifetime. I can't imagine what it's like have fought this disease for as long as they did, but I am happy to ride alongside Jeremy and the rest of Team Truman to support this fight against ALS. I know we all have a number of charities and events that we support, but if you can find a little extra to sponsor me as a rider, I can promise the money will go to a great cause that is making active progress in both understanding and learning to fight this horrible disease. Thank You!
