I see that Tyler is attempting a come back and has started advertising for contributions to his foundation. http://www.tylerhamilton.com/cms/mission Has anyone had dealings with his foundation in the past? Do you think it has made any impact in MS treatment?
The only involvement I have had is to ride in the Boston version of the MS ride, from Quincy to Provincetown. Tyler was there at the start and rode some of the ride with a (very large) group. Unfortunately, I did not get to ride or chat with him as he was basically swamped with his fans. I do think any fund raising efforts to raise money for MS research is a good thing. Has it made an impact? I'm not sure anyone not directly involved with MS itself could make that judgement. I guess if you feel that making a donation towards MS research is want you want to do, then going through Tyler's organization can't be all bad. In the year that I rode, I raised nearly $1500 in pledges and was very glad I put in the effort to do so, even though I am not directly related with anyone that suffers from MS.

Tomorrow for sure, I'm buying that ticket to Boston..."
