I wanted to make sure you were aware of a very handy tool in the fundraising toolbox, compliments of the BikeMS crew. It’s a Facebook app/widget that you can add to your personal profile that shows folks your fundraising goal and progress toward that goal. It also has a convenient “Support Me” button that links directly to your fundraising page. If you have not already set up a fundraising page for your efforts, read my last post as to why then go to the My Participant Center on the National MS Society page to get started.

The tool is perfect for Facebook b/c it does not just sit back and wait for others to notice it. No sir-ee bob! It will do some heavy lifting for you. With any new donation or change in your overall fundraising goal, it provides a nice reminder to your Facebook friends that updates your progress via the Newsfeed. Very well done and help you consistently and gently remind your friends and family that your busting your hump for a great cause!

Greetings and welcome-

The 2010 ride is going to be special for several reasons. First, I’ve been asked by my friends at the Lone Star Chapter of the MS Society to blog about my experience leading up to the ride. I’m one of five “Ambassadors” selected to represent several rider profiles: team captain, new rider, rider with MS, non-traditional rider, and top fundraiser (me). You should check out each of their blogs (see links to the right) and learn more about their stories.

Second, I’m thrilled (and hopeful) to ride 150 miles. The 2009 ride was interesting with torrential rains that trapped many of us in our team tent and washed out Day 2. I was definitely conflicted in that I wanted to ride the full distance to fulfill my responsibility to all of the generous folks that donated. On the other hand, my tail and legs were so sore and ready to stay on the couch for Day 2.

Stay tuned,

Matt

Top Fundraiser
