2011 Tour de Acoma


Team Bulldogs (and Maddy :D), Albuquerque, New Mexico. (Picture clockwise: Samantha, Francesca, Kate, Carson, Abby, Maya, Maddy)

The six girls up there besides me, are the most supportive friends in the world, and they all mean so much to me! I could have never asked for friends as good as the ones that I have. A few weeks ago, I asked all of them if they would want to do the 25 mile race in Acoma with me to raise money for ALS research, and without hesitation they all said yes. None of us have ever really rode a road bike, much less been in a race, so this will be... intersting! It would be great if you could help us reach our goal of $1,000 for this race!

Thank you so much!

When I heard that one of my best friends dad had ALS I wasn't sure how to react.  I now know that the best way to help is to be supportive of everything that Abby and her family does, and to not just avoid the subject.  The Tour de Acoma is just one way that I can do those things and I can't wait to do it!  I love Abby and her family so much and I hope I can help raise more money for ALS!!!

Hi!
My name is Carson Thornton Gonzalez.  Abby Schneebeck is one of my best friends in the world, and her dad, Doug Schneebeck, has ALS.  It's been really hard for Abby and her family so my friends and I are going to participate in the race in Acoma to try and raise money for ALS.  We would all appreciate any donations.

Thanks so much!

Hello,

My name is Francesca Jarrett and one of my best friend's dads, Doug Schneebeck, has ALS.  On the weekend of september 24 my friends and I will be riding in the Acoma Bike race in an effort to support ALS research.  This is a disease that touches the lives of millions, and that there is currently no cure for.  The Schneebeck family are amazing, kind, loving, strong, people and your donation would help them and countless others, past, present, and future, who have been diagnosed with ALS.

Hey all,
I have to admit, this is my first ~serious~ bike ride, and I am a bit nervous. 25 miles! However, I am very excited to be a part of this to help raise money for ALS research! Also, this is a great time to connect with friends. All support is appreciated, so if you could make even a small donation, we would all be grateful! Thank you so much to everyone for their help!

Best wishes,

Maddy Lowry

This is not so much a case of me doing this for Doug; rather, he is doing something for me: to-wit shaming me - through his courage and commitment to health and fitness and GETTING OFF YOUR ASS - into embracing and using my (latent, comatose, nearly moribund) physical abilities. I'm old. I'm fat. I'm in pathetic shape, and I have an old fat-lady bike, but I am by God going to ride Acoma.
