Behind every great web site (I’m kinda proud of my blog in its short life so far) is a great IT person. Mine’s Matt Steinhoff, son of Ken Steinhoff, my riding partner. They’re as much “local” family as I have these days.
Matt’s riding for MS in Tennessee, and I’m going to help sponsor him. He’s put in hours on my web site, helping me set it up and providing technical tips, so this is the least I can do for him. (Well, I did try to sell his house for him with a sexy craigslist ad! Close, but no cigar.)
Here’s his pitch: Support him if you feel like it. (Aw, shucks: He’s worth it and will do your dollars proud. I’ve got friends with MS, so it’s a cause I readily support. Even $5 is welcome. Bucks is bucks, and it’s tax-deductible.)
Earlier this year, I foolishly signed up to ride
a bike 150 miles across Tennessee in support of a
Multiple Sclerosis cure.
I have been doing my part to reach this goal by
putting in two or three hard hours a week on the bike.
(Since the start of the year, I have ridden over 1,100
miles.) I’m hoping you’ll help me with the other part
of the goal: money.
Please give a few bucks to the National Multiple
Sclerosis Society in my name…
The MS 150 is September 13 and 14, 2008 and my
very modest fundraising goal is $500.
If a good cause and my suffering across 150 miles
of hilly and hot Tennessee is not enough to get you
to come up with a few bucks, name your price. I’m not
above circus tricks and begging to get a buck.
