In 2003, as part of my heart attack anniversary rites (my heart attack and bypass surgery happened in 1999), I decided to put my riding skills and training to a new purpose, which is raising money for Multiple Sclerosis. Most of the details can be found in the fundraising letters below.
Thank you all for your contributions for the 2004 Waves to Wine ride. The ride took place on September 18, and over $13,660 was donated.
For any donations, if you do this online and work for Adobe, I'd like to be more explcit about matching funds procedures. Simply stated (both contradicting the MS web site and being easier for you), all that you have to do is to email me your employee number. I will handle the paperwork (doing one large matching funds request for all Adobe contributors). If you have met your matching funds quota, or do not wish to have this contribution count against your quota, please let me know this by email also.
I am also doing the MS ride (100 miles in one day) around New York City on October 17, but I'm not doing the same level of fundraising that I did for Waves to Wine. Contributions are accepted through December 1.
