Made it halfway!

Posted by Jamey on September 4, 2015 at 5:45 PM

Hey friends, I have made it halfway! Much harder than I thought it would be but all is good. I've decided to try and raise money for ALS. My goal is only to raise $2 for every mile I ride.


Here is why I've decided to do this taken from an insert from my blog I will post when I finish: "This is when my thinking changed and I started to think about all my relatives who have passed. My grandma Shirley who was the one that got me into unicycling. Without her I would not be mountain unicycling the CT right now. My grandpa Ron who I barely new and remember. My great grandparents Vanover who I'm pretty sure I got my humor from as he was always telling jokes. My grandpa Herbert who I look identical to and even wear the same newsboy hat that he used to wear. My grandma Ruthie still tears up every time I visit her cause she says I remind her so much of him. And to my uncle Ryan who was also a kind soul. He was the latest to die and it was due to ALS just like my grandpa Herbert.


I suddenly couldn't take it anymore and burst into tears. As I was climbing this beautiful mountain I had tears dripping down the face. My first time crying since the start of my trip. I thought this might happen but didn't know it would be about death. I sat down to think about life and to recompose myself. As I sat I realized for the first time that I have a fear of getting ALS or some other horrible disease that may end my life early. Or if I don't get it maybe my brother, sister, a close friend or another relative might. This tears me apart to think about and I decided that I not only need to do the CT for myself but I must try and help others as well. I am going to set up a donation page for the ALS foundation so that they came come up with a cure. Please donate if you can." http://web.alsa.org/site/TR/3rdParty/GreaterNewYork?px=3702133&pg=personal&fr_id=11151
