    Thumbs up Askng for help!

    Hello to All, I view this forum quite often. I am asking for assistance in the form of a donation. I hate to do this, but I am trying to help a good cause out by using my cycling skills and enjoyment to help benefit others that can really use the help.






    I will be cycling in this year MS 150 in the Tampa area. We go from LakeWales, FL to Orlando, FL this year. My team consists of three (3) riders. Last year we raised $3,100.00 for the MS Society.






    A little about myself, my name is Vinnie I work for Walgreen’s in the pharmacy. I have 2 reasons why this event is very important to me. FIRST, is my mother has a diseases that is very similiar to MS and has no CURE, SECOND is I have a very close friend with MS. She has had MS for 15 yrs now. She struggles with every aspect of daily actives. These are my reasons for riding in this event. Also since I work in a Pharmacy we see different patients that we talk to on a regular basis and we discuss their condition and see how they are doing.






    If anyone would be interested in helping me collect donations you can visit my website located at






    http://www.walgreenscycling.com






    Once at my website on the homepage there is a link for the "2009 MS DONATION PAGE"



    or visit my MS Donation Page http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/walgreens




    Thank you to everyone who donated from this FORUM last year. Please help me make this year a successful ride.



    Thanks Vinnie

    I will be riding the same ride. I am riding with the Heart of Florida Hospital team. Last year I worked the ride as a Deputy. I decided I need to be riding in this event. What is your team name as I talked to a lot of people last year. I may have talked to you along the way. What do you think of the new route? Well good luck Vinnie and maybe I'll get a chance to met you in May.
