MS 150

So I have 17 days until I'm supposed to have my ass in my bike saddle for 180ish miles. I'm pretty confident that I can do this, but I'm looking for support.

If any of you can spare a dollar or two, could you think about making a contribution to my MS 150 pledge sheet. It's a fairly straightforward deal, and I don't need much from any given donor. If I can get enough of my friends to chip in, I think that I'll more than easily meet my goal.

This is a pretty awesome fundraiser, and I know a few people who would benefit greatly from research into this disease.

I always feel a little cheesy asking for money, but it's pledge week at my NPR affiliate, and I've heard a lot of pitches over the last few days.

Thanks so much, and let's hope my butt survives.

Go Team FIght Against MS!
Spamming facebook has worked really well for Chrissy and me.

Startlingly well. I suspect it's the constant reminders more than the offering to publicly call people awesome... but the awesome thing really, really worked.

Re: Go Team FIght Against MS!
I got a note up, and I'm devoting at least one status update a day to it. Did you guys send messages too? I sent some to friends via e-mail, but I haven't spammed the actual 360 people I'm "friends" with.

Did you do your page through the MS site? You can setup personal pages and customize the URL and then add that link everywhere. Email me if you need more info.

Yep. I did that. I hope it linked properly above...

I couldn't give much, but you've got money from me. :) I work for a similar event at my day job, so I know how every little bit adds up!

Oh, thanks so much! That's more than generous, and I'm really excited so many people want to help.
