Dear Family, Friends & Business Associates
As some of you may know I'm planning to ride my bicycle across the USA from Los Angeles to Boston, approximately 3,400 miles. It is a fully supported ride leaving from Los Angeles on May 10th and arriving Boston on June 26th.
I will be riding in memory of my brother, Thomas, and in honor of his wife "Bunny". My ride will be dedicated to raising money for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Bunny has courageously lived with MS for over 30 years and I know how much this dedication would have meant to my brother. She was his everything and his one and only love!
This is where I need your help. I'm trying to raise $5,000 to support the needs of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
As you can appreciate a ride of this magnitude requires the support of many and fortunately Micro Matic A/S, located in Odense, Denmark and Micro Matic USA, Inc. have committed to being a major sponsor. I'm extremely grateful to work for a company and with individuals who truly care about giving back.
I realize I could not go on this ride without acknowledging the continued encouragement, love and support from my wife, Bonnie. I do know that I'm one very lucky man; it is a 50 day tour.
Many have asked about tracking my exploits and I'm planning to have a site so those of you who are interested can follow my progress. I also promised to post photos and hopefully they will be from my bike and not the passenger seat of the support van.
Thank you for your donation and for contributing to this very worthy cause.
