There is a good chance that someone know’s someone who…has done this, that or the other! In the OneCoast family, we like to brag a bit.
It was brought to our attention that one our family members, a Mud Pie Territory Manager out of Texas, Allan Meyer was biking 180, yes 180, miles to help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
Here’s Allan’s letter (this can also be found here):
Dear Friends and Family,
I am going on a little bike ride (180 miles) from Houston to Austin over two days (April 18-19) to raise money for MS with my wife, Sharon.
I hope that you will consider supporting me with a donation.
I am not an incredibly fast rider but I am motivated to do do this to help others. My sister in law, Dana, has to overcome MS every day. I hope this effort contributs to help find a cure. This will be the 9th time for me to participate with 14,000 if my “closest” friends in the largest non profit event in the country.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.*
Allan made his contribution to his family and community to help battle this disease, a cause close to home. He mentioned that he was biking with 14,000 of his friends too!
Finding ways to give back and being active in your community helps with more than just getting your face out there, it makes you feel good!
Allan said, “Even after 180 miles over two days, there is a feeling of accomplishment when you finish something you set your mind to do.”
Congrats to you Allan and thank YOU for setting such a great example!
