Team Great Dave

For the fourth year we are organizing TEAM GREAT DAVE to participate in the Silver Valley Ride to Defeat ALS. As most of you know, TEAM GREAT DAVE is named for my brother, Dave, who is now in his fifth year post-diagnosis. He is now confined to bed, has trouble breathing, but continues to be alert. He can read books and watch TV and still loves sports. But, the disease is relentless and the outcome certain. Statistics show that, for reasons unknown, persons who have served in the military are twice as likely to get a neuro-muscular disease such as ALS compared with the general population. Dave served two years as an Army Lieutenant in Germany in the mid-fifties. Over the past three years we have raised over $7000 to Defeat ALS.  Let's see if this year we can reach a total of $10,000.  Please consider joining our team in this ride, or, make a contribution by following the link below to the ALS home page. Hope to see you on the bike trail! Dave, our family, and I, thank you.
