In 2019, my sister (Morgan Daniels) and her boyfriend (Peter Kelley) decided to ride 100 miles in the charity bicycle ride called the Tri-State Trek, started with the intent of raising funds for the world’s leading ALS research facility: the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI). Over the years, and driven by a single, profoundly important goal - to discover viable treatments for ALS as quickly as possible - the Trek has raised over $9.5 million for ALS research. Morgan and Peter didn't even own bikes when they registered. We were so proud of their commitment to this cause, and I will never forget my racing pulse and my hoarse voice as I cheered her on as she blasted over the finished line. My father stood by my side, silently moved to tears, clutching his walker. This was a journey that began all because of him.  Many of my friends on social media grew up in my small town in Connecticut. You know my dad, Bob Daniels, well. He was your softball coach. He was your karate teacher. He let you climb into his oil truck at Valley View School and pull the horn. He was flipping burgers in the Exchange Club booth at the Portland Fair. He was dragging a hundred pound oil hose across your yard in waist-deep snow on New Years' Day, with a wave and a smile. A 5th degree black belt, runner, cyclist, and general athelete, my Dad was diagnosed with ALS in 2018. His symptoms began, slowly, years earlier. He has beat the odds with his slow progression. He is one the strongest and bravest people I know. Even as the most basic things have become impossible for him to do, even when he is exhausted in ways that most of us can't comprehend, even as so many things have been taken from him and from our family by this horrifying disease, he continues to fight with hope for a cure. On days when I am overcome with sadness by the things he can't share with his beautiful grandchildren, I remind myself that the example of humility and courage he is setting for them is invaluable, even as it comes at the very highest cost imaginable. And on days when I feel helpless, when I feel like we have read about every drug, every study, every theory in existence, I can absolutely relate to the idea of getting on a bike in an effort to do something to help.  ALS is not incurable. ALS is underfunded.  This year, with a virtual option, I can finally participate in the trek - my goal is 100 miles. I am excited and honored to join Team Daniels as we ride for the ALS community, and for my incredible father. Your support is encouraging, your virtual high-fives would mean so much, and your donations of even $5 truly make a difference as we inch towards our fundraising goals as both individuals and a group.  From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of my entire family and our Trek Team - Thanks, friends.

Riding/ Walking for a CURE

This year I had the pleasure of working with a fellow Speech Pathologist and friend whose most amazing family is fighting to find a cure for their father's ALS. He is a vibrant man who has 3 beautiful daughters who have the strongest desire to fight for their fathers cause. Starting May 1st, I am pledging to walk 100 miles to contribute to the reasearch required to find an effective treatment for ALS. If you are financially able to do so, please consider donating to support my efforts and this cause. Any amount counts! After this year, I think it's safe to say we know what designated research can do to find effective treatment options for disease. I appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to learn about this cause and to support Team Daniels. Smooches! <3 Kat B

This summer I am honored to be participating in the Tri-State Trek to raise money for ALS research.  Morgan Daniels, my friend and coworker, has participated in this event and is driven to fight to find a cure for her father’s ALS. As a Speech Pathologist, I have seen firsthand how this disease unfairly steals people’s ability to communicate and eat/drink independently. As part of the Tri-State Trek, I am pledging to bike 100 miles to raise money for important research against this devastating disease.  Please consider donating to this cause if you are able-any amount counts! Thank you!

This summer, I will be participating in the Tri-State Trek with my colleague Morgan Daniels and her awesome team of family and fellow SLPs. Morgan's dad was diagnosed with ALS in 2018. In 2019, Morgan and Peter rode the tri-state trek and were able to raise over $6,000 to fund ALS research.  As a speech language pathologist on a neurology unit, I've seen how devastating this disease can be.  This summer, I will be participating in the trek with a pledge to ride 100 miles. Please consider supporting my efforts and this research by donating if you are able. Thank you!
