In late June of 2019, the Miles4Matty ride hit the road on a 1,000 km journey from Yankee Stadium to Toronto in celebration of the 80th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day; and what a ride it was. Fuelled primarily by the loss of my brother to ALS in 2014, and the need to spread awareness, this ride unfolded to become not only a personal achievement for those involved, but a campaign that would result in over $15,000.00 dollars of fundraising efforts–a huge thank you to all those who supported us.
Fast forward to 2020.
When approached to join the ALS Canada team to assist in planning and executing the inaugural Revolution Ride, it was obvious that my relationship with ALS would continue to morph. By focusing my efforts in a supportive direction for those living with ALS, I have been able to redirect an energy that was once founded on grief and frustration at the impacts ALS had on my life and family.
The success of this event relies on the support that surrounds it. I’m asking you to offer what you can in order to surpass my goal. By clicking ‘Next Step’ below, you will be redirected to a donation form where you can complete your contribution and receive an electronic tax receipt.
Seeing as this is the first ever Revolution Ride, let’s show what we can do together! You click the button; I’ll ride the bike!
We WILL make a difference, together.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, or motor neuron disease) is a disease that gradually paralyzes a person as their brain is no longer able to communicate with muscles that they are typically able to move at will. As the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe.
