Yes, I have decided to add yet another ride to my event list this summer. And it just so happens to be the same weekend as Bike MS. I will only be participating in the 1-Day, 100 mile ride but good times will still be had for sure. However, with another ride comes yet another fundraiser.
For this ride, I am humbled to be joining TEAM AMERICA in their efforts to end ALS. TEAM AMERICA supports the fight against ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, through fundraising for the ALSTDI (Therapy Development Institute). Their actions are centered around the Tri-State Trek: an annual, 270-mile ride from Boston to New York. Their friend and inspiration, Steve Saling, was diagnosed with ALS in 2006. Despite the threat of losing his voice and all ability to move, he has remained steadfast in his refusal to give up hope. It is with him in mind that we continue our fight, and increase our commitment.
That’s right folks, if you have been following my schedule, I’m planning on riding 250 miles for charity over the course of 3 days. A dollar, one dollar per mile, even twenty-five freakin’ cents a mile is going to help.

Thanks again for your support!
