The Tri-State Trek is about community: a community united in raising funds for ALS research and spreading awareness of the work ALS TDI is doing to find an effective treatment and cure.
Whether you are participating in this year's ride (in-person or virtual), volunteering at a rest stop, or cheering from home, your dedication and support make you a part of our #trekfamily.
Now more than ever, we need to come together and support ALS research. That's why we're inviting all members of the community the opportunity to join us by acknowledging someone special to you, and inspiring those who are riding to #EndALS.
Through our "Dedicate a Mile" program, you can donate $500 to dedicate a mile along the Tri-State Trek route in honor or memory of someone you love.
When you “Dedicate a Mile” you will have the opportunity to choose from one of the 100 miles along the Trek route – you may select a mile based on a number that has particular significance, perhaps a birthday or anniversary, or select a mile based on a special location along the ride.
Please note: If in previous years you selected a special mile number that is beyond 100, you can request to keep that mile number and your loved one will greet all cyclists as they complete their ride at the finish line.
Your loved one will then be recognized on the interactive route map featured on this page. The team at ALS TDI will use a photo and story you send us to create a personalized popup that will appear when your dedicated mile is clicked. In addition, we will be acknowledging all dedicated miles on social media. Trek riders will be able to see who they are riding for in the coming miles and be reminded of why they ride.
Whether you are dedicating a mile to remember a loved one, honor someone who inspires you, or thank someone for his or her service, every dedicated mile will support ALS TDI’s relentless work to find an effective treatment for ALS.
We hope you will join us in spirit at this incredible event. Please consider supporting the Tri-State Trek and honoring someone special to you by dedicating a mile.
Please note: Donations to Dedicate a Mile do not attribute towards riders’ fundraising minimums. Deadline to participate is May 31, 2021.
