Riding to find a cure!

I ride the Tri State Trek in honor of Amy Truman. Amy was a warrior, she battled ALS fearlessly, with grace and a positive attitude - inspiring so many.  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. In 2020 I was planning to ride day 2 - UCONN to the University of New Haven, 100+ miles, all in the name of ending ALS! However, with COVID-19 changing so many plans, I'm now participating in the My State Trek. Still with the same mission of raising awareness and funds for ALS TDI.  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!

Riding to Find A Cure

This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. Many of you know or have heard of my friend Amy and her battle with ALS.  Amy was a rock star, she handled her challenges with such grace and dignity. Amy was a warrior and an inspiration.  Amy had pulmonary embolism this winter and passed away.  Amy would not want us to give up the charge of finding a cure!  So we continue to ride... Riding raises money.  Money is what funds the research.  ALS RDI is doing amazing research and is using this donated money in amazing ways.  Please consider making a donation

Taking the road from my home to his home... virtually

On August 30th, 2018 my father, Andy Block, succombed to ALS after battling the disease for just 18 months.  Dad went on his own terms: choosing to stop his fight only when the disease kept him from being able to give of himself to others. By the time of his choice, our family had mobilized to support him in many ways, not the least of which was our effort to raise money for a cure.  In his final days he asked that we continue those efforts so that other families and individuals would not have to suffer as he did.   Please join me in supporting Dad's fight.  I'm riding in his name, hoping that his inspiration will raise money to find treatments for this soon-to-be curable disease!  All money raised goes to ALS-TDI, the first non-profit research organization dedicated to ending ALS in partnership with ALS patients and their families. Normally, the three-day route is especially meaningful to me because the Tri-State-Trek begins just a few miles from my home in Massachusetts, and ends just a few miles from where Dad lived in Connecticut.  This year, due to Coronavirus, the fundraising ride is virtual and accomplished over many smaller segments.  I'll attempt to re-create the route by tracking my progress from Boston to Greenwich virtually.  You can see my "location" (based on the number of miles of ridden so far) on the map above. My personal connection and interest in a cure for ALS goes deeper still.  My sister-in-law, Tracy Gibson, lost her battle with ALS at the too-young age of 27.  So as I train and ride I think of Tracy and ride for her memory as well! In our family's battle with ALS, we have been incredibly fortunate to come across other warriors fighting just as passionately.  So it is that we met Team Truman: not just a Tri-State-Trek cycling team, but also the friends and relatives of the inspirational Amy Truman, who fought the disease for five years with courage, dignity and grace.  I am honored to ride in Amy's memory as well. You can read more about my father on his fund-raising page - to which you can contibute all-year-round!

Help support finding a cure for ALS while I ride for those who no longer can

I've been wanting to participate in the Tri State Trek ever since it got on my radar, after our good friend and coworker Amy Truman was diagnosed with ALS. Amy was a a dear friend, an inspiration, and through my time at Datto and experience with the Connect Computer team, I was so awed by how brave and strong she, her husband Jeremy, and her family stood against the challenges they faced despite everything in front of them.  Given that COVID has made the Trek digital this year, it's a wonderful opportunity to participate and raise awareness for ALS! This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. I would very much appreciate any contribution you're able to make. We miss Amy terribly and I ride for her everyday.
