Blood, Sweat and Tears to end ALS

We all ride for one reason: to end ALS. My mission to fight ALS continued after my brother died. But why do we ride to support ALS research?     *Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS in the US     *Most people survive 3-5 years after their first symptoms     *Those who have served in the military are twice as likely to develop ALS than the general population   With determination my team, Wong Strong will be out on the roads again in June. This year we will have t-shirts!! If you want to ride with us, please sign up...it is truly an experience I want to share with you! Hope, Health , Hugs Terri Handler

Last year on June 21, I rode over 100 miles from Boston College to University of Connecticut (through some brutal rain, I might add) alongside hundreds of others passionate about ending ALS through research and drug development. This year, I was so excited to support the ALS TDI by trekking again - spending 100+ miles with great people and enjoying unlimited peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But 2020 had different plans. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ALS Tri State Trek, which was scheduled to begin June 19, has turned into the My State Trek. We wont be riding our bikes all together, but instead, setting our own goals and riding separately. Devoted to assisting the ALS Therapy Development Institute again, I am committing to riding 150 (outdoor) miles between April 1 - June 19, 2020, and I hope to raise some money for my efforts! Please consider donating $5, $10, $25, $50 or of course more - every dollar raised goes directly to the ALS TDI for research and development of treatments to END ALS! Led by people with ALS and drug development experts, ALS TDI understand the urgent need to slow and stop this disease. Learn more at www.als.net. April 6, 2020 - 15.29 Miles April 12, 2020 - 18.64 Miles May 3, 2020 - 26.58 Miles May 17, 2020 - 20.64 Miles May 23, 2020 - 23.87 Miles May 31, 2020 - 20.16 Miles June 14, 2020 - 17.5 Miles
