On October 15, 2011 my longtime friend David Price took his own life. Dave and I had been close friends for over 15 years and I miss him every day.
To say Dave was athletic is an understatement. He was good at everything he tried whether it was basketball, biking, snowboarding or just kicking butt at the gym. David always pushed me to my limits working out & was a fun side-kick whatever the activity.
The Life is Priceless Foundation was created by Dave's brother and sole family survivor, Tim. The Foundation mission is to provide the academic and medical communities additional resources to continue to research, diagnose and treat depression and to help prevent future suicides.
I will be riding with Tim & friends in the 5 Boro Bike Tour in David's honor Sunday, May 6, 2012. The event provides participants the unique and fun experience to bike through all five boroughs – a 40 mile, traffic-free ride for 32,000 cyclists.
I will also be competing with Tim & friends in the New England Tough Mudder in Dave’s honor Saturday, July 14, 2012. Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. We will be competing at Mount Snow and I am thrilled to be participating.
Please help me raise money for this cause so close to me & donate in memory of Dave and in support of my events.
Thank You in advance for your support and honoring Dave.

It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While you're first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
CrowdRise is designed to help Volunteers and Fundraisers answer the call to service, raise money for Charity, and have the most fun in the world while doing it. To make sure we don't go out of business trying to help everyone raise lots of money for Charity, CrowdRise deducts 5% on donations made through our site and a $1 transaction fee for donations under $25 or a $2.50 transaction fee for donations $25 and over.
For example, with a $100 donation:
-$5.00 (5%) CrowdRise's not wanting to go out of business fee
-$2.50 Transaction Fee
$92.50 goes to Charity

There's no better way to make a Fundraiser viral than by creating or joining a Fundraising Team.
A Fundraising Team is a group of Fundraisers or Volunteers, all working together for a common cause. It's like communism but more fun. Start or Join a Fundraising Team if you want to go beyond donating money and get more involved by spreading the word about the Fundraiser to your friends, family, co-workers, etc. Everyone on the Team gets their own Fundraising Page with the click of a button so we make it quick and easy to join the Team and even easier to tell your friends about it. Donating cash to a Fundraiser is amazing and much appreciated but imagine the impact you can have if you go a step further and ask everyone you know to donate too. And then a couple of them join the Team and spread the word to all their friends. We've seen this work successfully over and over and it can work for this Fundraiser too.
If you have any question about how to Join or set up a Team on CrowdRise, please Contact Us.
Share your Project Page with everyone you know and ask them to donate to your amazing cause. 97% of people you ask will say yes. And if they don't give at least a little cash money, there's no reason to buy them a holiday or birthday gift ever again.
