This summer I am riding 270 miles to find an effective treatment for ALS. I volunteered at a rest stop last year and fell in love with the efforts and the cause! Please help me raise money to find a cure for ALS. I cant wait to ride for those who no longer can!

Trek Year 8!

It's hard to believe, but this will be my 8th Tri-State Trek. They're starting to blur together so that I can't remember which year certain memories came from. My first year, we finished Day 1 wearing trash bags because it was 55 degrees and raining. My third year, we jumped in the harbor in Greenwich for a swim. A few years ago we started the tradition of visiting Stony Creek Brewing on Saturday afternoon. Two years ago it poured rain for two hours, and then the sun came out, the temperature shot up to 90 and our clothes were dry 10 minutes later. Last year, Rick Tobin spoke at the Open Mic in a rare and amazing comedy/emotionally touching speech combination wearing a wooden spoon as a necklace.  Every year though, I'm more and more touched and humbled by how much the community comes together. We're celebrating yes, but we're also raising money so that someday (someday soon!) we can end this stupid disease. I'm a researcher at ALS TDI and I would like to end by saying THANK YOU to fundraisers, donors, riders, and volunteers. I'll see you on the road!

Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS. This is not an incurable disease, only underfunded. This is my second year riding 270 miles to help raise money to find a cure for ALS.
