I put my goal at $1000 for this year’s fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis research and support. I didn’t realize that I would be so close to that goal by now.
For those of you who are just coming here now, A friend of mine who I haven’t really had the chance to talk to since high school lost her sister to MS just a few weeks ago. I’m riding for her this year and for her family because, well, it feels like I should. I need to.
Now I’ve done this ride before because it’s been the “right thing to do” and I have met many people with MS as I have been in and out of the MS office down in Fremont, (Rosanna works for the MS Society and runs the MS bike tour) but never had it been within the 6 degrees of separation.
Folks, this disease can inflict ANYONE. you, me, your brother, best friend, boss, co-worker… ANYONE. you know the worst thing about it? We have no idea how it picks its victims or how to cure it. We’re close though. The only good thing about Western Washington having the highest population of MS is that there is top notch support for the patient and family.
There is a way you can help. You can go here and donate. Anything, $5, $50 or $500. it all goes to a great cause and people who need it.
Again… to Leann and all those who are connected to the Goodwin family. Every push of the pedals, every ounce of my energy and every single dollar that I raise will be in Lisa’s memory.
