As athletes, we all face requests for donations to various charitable organizations. Frequently, we have our own fundraising goals or pet projects. It can be a real balancing act determining where to send our contributions while ensuring we don't break the bank. And sometimes, the decision is easy.
Greyhound is doing the BP MS 150 to raise funds for multiple sclerosis research. For him, it is personal, as his wife battles MS every day. Having an aunt who has lived with MS for the better part of 20 years, I understand the desire to help raise funds. These funds have led to developments The Pack Leader benefits from every day. See Greyhound's post, as he does a much better job of telling the story.
As triathletes, we understand that huge things can be accomplished with small steps. By making enough small deposits into an Ironman account, we manage to complete a race many would consider impossible. If we all help out with a small step, Grey can reach his fundraising goal and the National MS Society can take more steps towards finding a cure.
