Me with my bicycle
On Saturday 2015 Sept 12 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 $1,700 last year, I'd like to raise at least $1,800 for the cause this year (actually, $2,000 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.

This is a personal effort, not sponsored, endorsed, or supported by NC State University.

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!)

If you'd like to donate anonymously, I have a container at Global Village Organic Coffee (2428 Hillsborough Street) - you can drop cash in there or ask for Mike (the owner), tell him what it's for, and hand it to him. Global Village is matching the first $500 in contributions!!

fyxation Eastside bicycle
As for the past two years, I'm likely to do the ride on the fyxation Eastside fixed gear bicycle that I built up in 2013.
