While the world has been turned upside down, LIFE MUST GO ON! even though we aren't doing an official ride until 2022, your financial help is still needed to help others! Research Continues! Education Continues! Eradication of this disease Continues!! But only with your help!
To get us to 2022, ALC has created the TOGETHERIDE! It is a way to turn every training ride into miles and into donations! From now through June 2021, I plan to ride at least 1,545 miles, thus must goal is $1,545! Will you support me and help others?
"If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
Two ways support me and help others:
1. Make a donation - No donation is too small!
2. Purchase a children's book which next proceeds are donated back to ALC - TogetheRide!
No donation is too small and you have the option to split up your contribution over as many as 10 months!
Please consider giving generously!
With love and gratitude,
Gary Graves - Rider #1204
