About the Campaign
Dedicated riders for Mark's Team through the years
2020-3 where 2 groups merged
2020-2 + 3 other riders
Mark's Team pictured above grew over the years. Leon introduced us to ALS Bike Trek MN prior to 2013. We started raising money in 2013 and as of 2020 have raised a cumulative total of $44,000. In 2020 we rode multiple weeks with small groups due to COVID. We hope to cross the $50,000 milestone in 2021. Will you join us?
Join Mark’s Team September 18, 2021 as we ride to support research for a treatment and cure of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). In 2003 my brother, Mark noticed weakness in his hands and neck which progressed to weakness in his legs and his ability to breathe. Elimination of other diseases culminated with his ALS diagnosis in 2005 and he passed away in 2007. Pictured above are Mark and Rita in 2005. We will ride from Scandia MN and you will find more information at the Hiawatha Bicycling Club ride calendar for September 18, 2021.
There will be two routes: one about 53 miles and another 28 miles. In addition to leading rides on 9/18/21 you can also ride on your own aka self paced. You can find the route map and cue sheet at www.HiawthaBike.org/ride calendar by clicking on September 18th. Distances will be confirmed prior to ride.
