Dear Friends and Family,
This is the hardest part of getting ready for my ride to me. Even harder than the training…which sucks.
This is where I ask for donations, and sponsors, for the ride. I hate asking for money! I hate it! But, I’m doing it anyway, because it is for a good cause. All proceeds are going to the American Stroke Association and the Brain Injury Association of America.
Money from Sponsors will help me buy the equipment that I need to do this ride, with the remainder being donated to the charities. And, of course, you get your logo, or name, on the Sponsor page of the website. And, my gratitude!
Ideally, all the money from donations will to the charities. However, I may need some for equipment if I don’t get enough sponsors. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. And, you will also get my prayers, and gratitude.
So, you can go to the website, www.barneyacrossamerica.com to donate. If you’d like to be one of my sponsors, the types of sponsorship are spelled out on the Sponsors page. You still need to go to the donations page to put in your financial information.
If you are not in a position to help at this time, that’s ok. The ride is going to take several months. Maybe you’ll be in a better place sometime into the journey.
Whether you donate, or not, follow along as I blog across the country (my sore ass!). I’ll be seeing some great sites, meeting some cool people, and drinking some of the local beers.
Oh yeah…please share this note. Strokes are the #5 killer in the US. The odds are that you know someone who has had one.
