Ride update.. Updated 8/31

I'm in complete shock right now.. ALS Association asked every rider to raise $250 in order to ride.  I can't even believe how many people in our lives (mine and my parents) that are willing and able to support our cause.

Together our team of 3 has raised $2100+ and counting..  I feel so humbled and Blessed right now..

We are ranked team #6 and we are still getting donations.. I want to see my Dad get $1000 in personal donations so he can be part of an ALS Fundraising exclusive club.. We have all earned ALS Jerseys but we will be riding with our team jerseys :)

I'm so happy with our fundraising and all that we have done to get ready and train for this event.. 

Thanks for listening :)

anyone wanting to donate can use this link.  100% of the money goes to ALS Research and finding a cure.  We are riding in Honor of my dads friend and there is NO CURE for ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Our team is almost at $2500 so my Dad moved our goal to $3000...  If any of you can give ANY donation I would greatly appreciate it..  We ride in just about 1 week and I can't wait!!  I'm only $250 away from my persona $1000 Goal WOO HOO!!!

That's great!  It's amazing that you guys are able to raise that much so fast.  I'm sure you'll double that by the time you guys race.

I don't know about doubling it but I'd LOVE to each raise $1000..  I think we are going to share any cash and checks that we get once my Dad hits his $1000.. WOO HOO!!!

Thanks Everyone.. I'm just SO damn proud of our team and what we are doing...  I have NOT been involved in something like this before so it's pretty amazing.. When I think of crossin the finish line WITH my parents on my team I get chocked up.. It's going to be an amazing day.. Also knowing my husband and kids will be there to see it too with our team shirts on.. 


Mike the guy we are riding for if he's well enough, him and his wife will be there as well.. it will probably be a SUPER emotional day!!!
