Me with my bicycle
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.
