2016 MS 150 Ride - 10 or 11 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 nearly $2,500 last year, I'd like to raise at least $2,800 for the cause this year (actually, $3,000 would really be nice).
You can make a donation online using your credit card by visiting
my personal donations page
at the Society.
If you'd prefer to send a check, please make it out
to "National MS Society" and mail it to reach me
during the first week of September - please contact me for an address.
If you'd like to donate anonymously or drop off a check, I have a container at
Global Village Organic Coffee
(2428 Hillsborough Street) - you can drop cash or check in there
or ask for Mike (the owner), tell him what it's for, and hand it to him.
Note: 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, I rode for Ginny Grisez, a friend's sister who has suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for many years.
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.
