Making A Difference — A Plea For Your Help

by David Brock on August 15th, 2009

It’s that time of year again!  In less than 60 days, I will be participating in my 4th MS 150, Bay to Bay ride.  It’s a fantastic event, on October 10 and 11, about 2500 people will ride from Orange County to San Diego, raising money for MS.  More than 400,000 people in the US and 2.5 people worldwide have MS.  But the impact is far greater than that with millions of additional family members and friends impacted by this disease.

MS150 Team 2As usual, I will be doing the 150+mile route.  It’s a fantastic route along the coast and into the mountains.

Our team, the Derailleur’s (I’m the classy looking person, second from the right), has been one of the top money raisers in the small team category.  In my past 3 rides, I have been one of the top 150 money raisers, last year, with tremendous help from many of you, I was 44th.

This year, I’ve set my personal fundraising goal at $5000.  The most I have ever attempted to raise – in one of the most difficult fundraising years in recent history.  I’m committed to do whatever it takes to achieve and exceed that goal, but I need your help.

I know many of you have faced terrible hardships, both in job loss, financially and otherwise.  But I’d still love your help and support.  Anything you can contribute will help move me to my goal, but more importantly provide critical funding to support research and people who have MS.  Even if you can only contribute a few dollars, please send a check to the address below.  If you can contribute a minimum of $10, click on the link below and charge it to your credit cards.

If you can’t contribute financially, there are other ways you can help.  Forward this to your friends, ask them to support me.  Join the team and me for the ride, raise money and have fun with us!  If you are in Southern California, contact me about joining the team—you’ll be hooked in a fantastic movement! 

Finally, volunteer or participate in your local MS Chapters and Events.  You can also help spread the word by publishing this as a “guest post” in your own blog and by tweeting this post or the links.

I’m not letting the economy be an excuse to not set a record in my own contribution and fundraising.  I hope you will join me, support me, and contribute in whatever way you can.

All the details are below.  The easiest way to contribute is on line, Follow This Link.  You can also send a check (make sure you note that you are contributing to my campaign).  The address is below.  Better yet, click on the link and contribute online.
