2017 MS 150 Ride - 9 September
On Saturday 2015 Sept 10 or Sunday Sept 11 I will ride my bike at least 120k (75mi)
out of New Bern, NC
as part of the annual MS150 fundraising ride for the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society
After raising more than $2,000 last year, I'd like to raise at least $2,500 for the cause this year (actually, $3,000 would really be nice).
You can make a donation online - even now - using your credit card by visiting
my personal donations page
at the Society.
Wed 6 Sept ... 25% of sales donated to National MS Society by
Global Village Organic Coffee, 2428 Hillsborough St, Raleigh.
From the owner ... "For the past two years, George has ridden for my sister
Ginny, who was diagnosed with MS nearly 20 years ago.
Some days are good for her, some are bad.
When days are bad, she loser her eyesight and can't climb stairs.
Thanks for your purchase on Wednesday to support MS research."
Global Village Coffee & Friends donated $650 to the MS Society on 7 September!
Thanks, so much, to Mike and everyone who contributed.
Notes: Because of potential conflict of interest,
I cannot knowingly accept support from any of my current students or advisees,
or students who will be taking any of my classes in the future.
(Past students are fair game!)
This is a personal effort, not sponsored, endorsed, or supported by NC State University.
In 2015 & 2016, I rode for Ginny Grisez, a friend's sister who has suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for many years.
I'll ride for Ginny again in 2017.
This is just the front of the 2015 starting line - there were about 1,800 riders.
The tool of choice again in 2015 - my
fyxation Eastside fixed gear bicycle that
I built up in 2013.
Here I am after at the 100k point during the 2013 ride.
At the ride start, 2008 - that's me under the yellow arrow, with
my three riding mates in the same kit - Peter behind off my left shoulder,
David in front to my left, and Trey front left of him.
