Rinaldo Dorman

A Decade of Trekking!

2021 will be my 10th year riding the Tri State Trek with TEAM AMERICA. Once again I'm starting up the work of ending ALS. Your support and contribution brings us one step closer to our mission of curing this disease. I've ridden over 2,100 miles over the challenging course and I'm hoping that you will be willing to support my ongoing efforts with a donation.  Please join me as I ride 100 miles during this July within Mass to support the ALSTDI in their mission to find an effective treatment for ALS - or Lou Gehrig's Disease - because of our friend Steve Saling who was diagnosed with ALS in 2006. A few facts about ALS/ALSTDI: Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS in the US 86% of each dollar raised is put directly in to TDI’s research efforts Each drug therapy study can cost $250,000, we keep 30+ ongoing drug studies It can take a year or longer to diagnose ALS At least 450,000 people are living with ALS worldwide ALS shows no prejudice. It effects people of all ages, race and ethnicities

Riding to DEFEAT ALS!

(These are unprecedented times, full of uncertainty, fear and anguish.  I pray that everyone in your world is safe and secure. At this time, the actual Tri-State Trek has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  It has become MY TRI STATE TREK; each participant completing the ride on their own. I am totally committed to my campaign to end ALS. I plan to ride 50 miles a day for six consecutive days, rain or shine, the same conditions as the Trek. I guarantee that I’ll do the milage, completing the task by June 21.  ALS-TDI desperately needs these funds to continue their good work to end this horrific disease.  Thank you in advance for your understanding!)  Dear Family and Friends,   This will be my TENTH consecutive Tri-State Trek!  Instead of riding my bicycle with 400+ riders, 287 miles over three days from Boston to Greenwich, CT as in previous years, I’ll be riding a different route by myself. The purpose of the Trek is to raise funds to defeat ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Through your generosity last year alone, the Trek raised more than $720,000!     The funds raised through your donations go directly to ALS-TDI, a research facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The ALS Therapy Development Institute and their scientists actively do research to develop treatments for ALS patients. They are the world's first and largest nonprofit biotech focused 100 percent on ALS research. Led by ALS and drug development experts, they understand the urgent need to slow, stop and eventually end this disease.  Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS, a Motor Neuron Disease (MND). It is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, difficulty breathing and swallowing, resulting in total paralysis while leaving the senses intact. ALS attacks certain cells in the brain and spinal cord needed to keep muscles moving. Most people survive two to five years after their diagnosis. There is an estimated 30,000 people in the US and 450,000 worldwide living with the disease. Currently, there is no effective treatment or cure.      As I’ve stated before my last nine campaigns, my involvement in this cause is personal as I will be riding in memory of and to specifically honor at least seventeen people I know, some of whom have passed as a result of ALS and others who are currently battling this horrific disease.  Their names were added over the years to the back of the jersey I would normally wear as I cross the finish line in Greenwich.  My friend and neighbor, Frank DeGeorge started me on this journey, completing my first Tri-State Trek, August, 2011.  Frank succumbed to the ravages of ALS on May 11, 2011.  Throughout his battle, Frank never lost his trademark sense of humor; he was always quick with a joke.  Frank stayed strong to the end, displaying a level of courage that I could only hope to achieve.      I have committed to raising at least $2,000.  I’ll do the hard part.  I’ll push my 71 years young body over the six day, 300 mile journey.  After the successful completion of my tenth Trek, and with your help, we will have donated more than $30,000 (!) and I will have ridden my bike 2,800 miles (plus a thousand miles in training each year) to help find a cure so that no individual and no family or friends will have to face the horror of ALS again.     Please, find it in your heart to donate ANY amount toward this cause; every dollar helps.  Simply click on the link below then the DONATE button in the upper right hand corner of my Fund Raising Page and follow the directions.  Thank you in advance for your generosity! http://tst.als.net/4frank For Frank, and all those affected by ALS,  Vince Crescenzo  (845) 978-7244

Riding for those who no longer can.

This year will be my 14th year with the TriState Trek. This year it is known as the MY-State Trek because, as with everything else, we have had to go virtual this year. No fun motorcycle ride this year, but I am hoping that you can be generous this year as you have in the past.  ALS/TDI generates much of their funding through this charity ride and the fallout from COVID-19 is threatening to be a big hit to their bottom line. Without that funding it will take even longer to find a cure. The funds that they receive this month, and in the next few months, will be critical to their short- and long- term ALS research goals, all of which are ultimately aimed at finding effective treatments quickly. I know many of you are dealing with the repercussions of COVID-19 as well and if your circumstances are such that you can't donate, that's OK. We'll be back next year. But if you're lucky (as we have been) and continue to work in our 'new normal', I hope you can donate and help us kick ALS's ass!          Thanks for your support!                         Kevin Brady

Riding in memory of my dad and for my friends who no longer can

Hi friends, 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. Sincerely, Katherine Shambo
