Andy Rubenstein

END ALS

Welcome to Andy Rubenstein's fundraising page This will be my 17th year riding the TST since this horrible disease took my father’s life.  Many of you visiting this page are already familiar with the Tri-State Trek and ALS.  This year the "official" ride will be a one day 100-mile loop around Boston and  will commit to a two day ride up to Boston from our time honored finish-line in Greenwich.  3-days / 300-miles.    For those of you here for the first time, this is not just a ride to raise money, it’s a sign of hope for the families we have met along the way. It’s a show of support for the victims of this horrible disease, and to me personally it is a tribute to my dad that he is still an influence in our hearts.       I consider ALS TDI and its supporters an extension of my family, and we will go this distance and further to find this cure.  ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis aka Lou Gehrig’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that leads to paralysis, due to the death of motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain. There is currently no known cause, cure, or effective treatment for the disease.      The team name, Follow Me on the surface is a private acknowledgment to my father. The nickname was humorously bestowed upon my dad by some very dear family friends just due to his nature of always wanting to lead the group…understandably so as the father of 5 children. The story is simple and still brings a smile to my mother’s face. However, it is more than just a tribute. It’s about the life philosophy of doing as I do, not because anybody is watching, but because it makes the world a better place in some small way. It’s about the support and encouragement you can offer at the very moment it presents itself. It is about the unselfish extension of you, to help others…follow me…  I will do my ride from Greenwich to the starting line in the two days ahead so I can maintain our Tri in Tri-State Trek and spread the word of the great work being done by ALS TDI.         Thank you for your support, The Rubenstein Family & Team Follow Me

Eighteen years ago, we got the news that my uncle was diagnosed with ALS. This summer will be My 17th consecutive year to ride in his memory. (That'll be 4,320 miles!!!)  This is the most incredible ride I've done and I choose ALS-TDI because they are working towards finding an effective treatment for ALS. You can support my efforts by riding with me or making a contribution to ALS-TDI. Thank you. Peace, Happiness, and Love... Mari
