Like everyone, I have friends and relatives. Some of those people have been stricken by different ailments. I've lost Uncles and Aunts. My friends have lost their parents. One of my friends was lucky enough to catch his daughter's cancer in time. She just graduated from High School. Another friend woke up blind. It was Multiple Sclerosis that took her sight. My own mother is dying from Alzheimer's Disease. Through all of this, I find myself powerless to help. I'm not a scientist, or biologist. I'm just a guy who works in a bank, and likes to ride a bicycle.
The only way I can do anything is to try to raise funds for valiant scientists and researchers. That's why I'm participating in several different events. The first is the MS-150 or Cleveland's Pedal to the Point. It's a 2 day, 175 mile bike ride to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. The next weekend is Pelotonia '14. This is a 1 day 100 mile ride in Columbus, OH. 100% of everything I raise goes directly to the James Cancer Research Center at The Ohio State University. I'm taking about 6 weeks off before I join my family on the 2014 Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk. This is my cool down for the summer. It's also the most personal event for me. Alzheimer's has take a large number of my family. We need to find a cure. I've got 2 sisters and several cousins (it's only affected the females on my mother's side) who are scared that it will happen to them. I'm scared for them.
I can't do it all by myself. I'll do the physical stuff. I need your help to raise the cash. All of these organizations are 501(c)3 charities. That means everything you donate is tax deductable. Please, pick a cause and donate generously.
