2008 River Road Run August 16-17, 2008

Dear Friends,

Once again I will join over 200 motorcyclists August 16th and 17th riding to end the devastating effects of MS. As you know last year I was honored to be the Ambassador for this event. This year, the honor is to let all of my friends and family know that while still on my daily injections of Copaxone, my doctor reports that I am healthier (as far as MS goes) than ever and with this course of treatment - I may even be better than in previous years.

In May, I also survived, very well I might add, volunteering atMS Camp for my second year.

Thank you for supporting me in helping others and to be the change I want to become.

Because of your generous support, I was one of the top fundraisers for this event last year. My goal again this year is to raise at least $10,000 – a goal you graciously helped me meet. Please help me again with your tax-deductible donations. Remember to check with your employer, as many businesses match contributions made by employees.

If you would like to contribute via the Internet, please log on to You will find on the left hand side towards the bottom of the menu’s an icon for ePledge – sponsor a Participant. Search for me and then select me from the short list.

Otherwise, please make your checks payable to the National MS Society. If your place of business matches your contribution, let me know so I can keep track of contribution totals. My deadline to get my donations is Friday, August 15th, 2008. After the event, I will make sure I send you a recap of the event to all my sponsors.

Thank you so much for your support of me and the fight against MS. Please call me if you have any questions or comments about this event. I can be reached at 612-236-9420 or by email at
