BENEFITING: Emory University
All donations benefit the ALS Center at Emory University.
"We call ourselves team 5 Smooth Stones for the story of David & Goliath. I met my Goliath when I was diagnosed with ALS in January 2012. ALS is a part of my life, but I refuse to allow it become my life. Every day for all of us is a gift, an honor and opportunity to live with joy...ALS does not have to change that. We will live with Courage, Confidence, Preparation and Trust until Victory has been achieved," shares Becky Kidd.
Last year a dear friend of Becky's, Greg Rollins, and his buddy, Jack Cash rode in The Snake Gap Time Trials (a 34 mile mountain biking event) under the banner of Team Five Smooth Stones to raise awareness & funds for ALS. They have asked to ride for ALS again this year & have grown their team to 5 mountain bikers!! They will ride on the first Saturday in January, February & March and are raising funds to support the Emory ALS Clinic.
The Snake Gap Time Trials is a time trial series event along the Pinhoti Trail through National Forest Lands in Dalton, GA. It takes place on January 3, February 3, and March 7, 2015. If you would like to participate, please join Team 5 Smooth Stones when you register.
All monies donated here benefit the Emory ALS Clinic at Emory University. The Emory ALS Clinic provides multidisciplinary care to people with ALS (pALS) and their families, focusing on independence and quality of life through state of the art intervention. The needs of the clinic are great staffing, space, therapy providers, equipment, etc. The Emory team works tirelessly with limited resources to ensure patients and families receive the best care while living with ALS.
