    Arizona BikeMS 2011 (March 26 & 27) - a plea for help

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    This will be DBF and my third year riding in the Arizona BikeMS (my forum avatar is from the finish line last year. ). We love supporting it every year as his mom has been living with MS for several years now and it's such a fun and uplifting event. There is a $250 fundraising minimum and I'm unfortunately coming up short with just a few days left before the event. A couple family members and friends who have always been happy to help in the past are stretched thin due to ongoing health and legal issues (and other family members also on hard times from subsequently providing financial support to those family members in need). It just doesn't feel right to solicit them for donations this year.

    If any of you are willing to pitch in even just a couple dollars to support this worthy cause, I would be so very grateful. DBF and I are committed to doing this event and I will cover the remainder myself if I have to (I've already put in $25, or 10%), but as a grad student, that will be a bit of a financial hardship.

    Thank you so much for reading and considering donating--and I promise to post lots of pictures from the ride!!

    Here is my donation page: http://main.nationalmssociety.org/si...02&pg=personal

    Thanks to help from TE'ers, and friends who responded to yesterday's more-desperate-sounding-than-usual post on Facebook, I've reached the $250 minimum! What a relief!

    Yay! I'm glad you made it. I hope you have a fun ride!
