As some of you know, every year I try to do a run/walk or a bike ride for a charitable cause: MS, Arthritis, Diabetes, etc.
This year, I’ll be doing two and I’d like to offer the invitation to all of you who live in or can make arrangements to be in the area of either of these to come out, put on a team shirt and join me!
The first is the Oklahoma BIke-MS ride. This happens on Sept. 20th and 21st. We leave from Chandler, OK (halfway between Tulsa and Oklahoma City) and ride in a loop each day. This will be the third year I do this ride and I absolutely LOVE it. There are different loops for different skill levels. In the afternoons there is fun music, vendors, and just a great relaxing atmosphere. If this is up your ally and would like to come out and ride with our team, please contact me and I’d be glad to give you all the information you need. We plan to have an awesome time and would love to have you join us!
If you’re interested or would just like to see what it’s all about, here’s a link to the OK MS-150 website.
My second event this year is a walk for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis AKA Lou Gehrig’s Disease). While I have no personal ties to MS, I do have a tie to ALS. My maternal grandmother (the one who I dedicated my first book to due to her awesome decorating skills) had ALS. She was a Bossier City (Louisiana) resident, so when I saw that there was a Bossier City/Shreveport walk, I knew I had to go! This walk will be on Saturday, Oct. 18 on the Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City, LA. Again, we’re planning an awesome time–even my mom is getting all excited about this and has suggested hosting a lunch to follow!
