Our Mission: to End ALS
Each summer cyclists ride the Tri-State Trek to raise funds for critical ALS research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI). Every dollar raised at the Trek goes toward finding effective treatments and cures for ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.
ALS is not incurable, it's underfunded. This is why we ride. When you register for the Tri-State Trek, you commit to fundraising for our mission AND riding your bike.

Ready to make an impact in ALS Research?
When you register to ride in the Tri-State Trek, a personal fundraising page will automatically generate to help you raise funds and spread the word about your participation. You can customize your page, share your page, receive online and mailed donations, and monitor your fundraising progress.
Once your page is set up, set realistic goals for yourself in a fundraising plan. Then contact your network. Share your story about how you're participating in Trek and committing to end ALS. Host a fun event to quickly raise funds!

Matching Gifts
Matching Gifts can play an important role in helping you reach your fundraising goal, and you should always encourage your donors to find out if their employers have a matching gift program. Many employers will double or even triple a donation made to a nonprofit organization. To see if a specific employer has a matching gift program, click here.
Matching gifts must be initiated by the employee to the employer after a donation is made. The ALS Therapy Development Institute will then confirm the donation and credit you via your fundraising page.
