Bike MS: Cape Cod 2014

This year the Greater New England Chapter has raised over $1.9 million, but this is just 74% of their goal of $2,650,000 for 2014. You can help by sponsoring a rider or participating in an event your self.

Events

Additional rides this summer will be held in Burlington, VT, Biddeford, ME, Bar Harbor, ME, Hancock, MA and other great locations.

Check out Walk MS events this summer as well as opportunities to contribute at the Falmouth Road Race, Harborfest Weekend in Portland, Maine, The Labor Day 5K for MS in Raynham and the Link up for MS 2014 Golf Tournament in Ipswich, MA. Something for everyone to participate in.

Sponsor a rider

My friend Joel Richman is riding this weekend.  You can read about Joel’s personal motivation to ride 150+ miles this weekend and learn more about how your contribution can help fund research and help people with MS who need a little help in their daily lives.

Ride well Joel!

AIDS Walk Boston & 5K Run

AIDS Walk Boston 5K Run is Sunday

I have signed up to participate in this event to help raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness, education, treatment and research. While many of us do not know someone personally with HIV/AIDS it is still important to keep research towards a cure moving forward.

AIDS Walk Boston,fund raising

The Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard has a talented group of scientist and researchers working diligently to find a cure. Vast amounts of money have been pledged to support the efforts of The Institute.

As many of us will recall, AIDS was once a death sentence. In the 80’s the mortality rate was virtually 100%. Today many people live with HIV and never progress to AIDS. Many with AIDS have been able to live full and productive lives due to the efforts of researchers and scientists at places such as The Ragon Institute.

Live well my friends,

Andy
