Speaking of the Cycle for ALS event - this year's event raised ~$60,000 (we are still waiting for a few checks). This is the largest amount of money we've raised for research ever. What is interesting is the response by the Les Turner Foundation. We have repeatedly asked for help in organizing this event. Remember, we have full time jobs, families, training, school, etc. The response was "We'll see what you do this year and then decide if we'll take your idea." Excuse me?
Now that the event is successful it is amazing how many people say they are involved (who have never been involved or donated) or who said they are "riding for the War on ALS". We've seen some of the worst side of human behavior as soon as the TV lights came on. Disgusting.
Mixed in the middle of this was my layoff. I've been spending 10-15 hours a day working on finding a new job. For what I do, 90 days at one job is a long time (Consulting) - so at least I'm used to this but it sure isn't easy.
More later today.
