Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! This June I will be participating in my fifth Tri-State Trek. Although virtual, I'm still excited to be a part of this iconic weekend and raise funds for ALS research!
Pre-COVID, the trek was a 270 mile bike ride from Boston College to Greenwich, CT. My first three treks were more enjoyable and rewarding than I could’ve imagined and I met lifelong friends who have also been affected by ALS.
I’ll be riding in memory of my dad, Joe Shambo, who passed away in 2005 after living with ALS for seven years. Prior to his diagnosis he was an avid runner (ran the Boston Marathon in 1993), athlete, and outdoorsman who would have joined me in the trek if he could. I’m also riding in honor of my friends who have passed away from this disease and for my friends living with ALS.
All money raised will go to the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) in Watertown, MA. The lab is the world’s leading drug discovery center focused solely on ALS.
Any contribution, no matter the amount, will aid in finding a cure to end ALS!!! It is not an incurable disease, only underfunded. Please support the TDI in this race against time.
Thank you so much for your donation.
