Waves to Wine 2007 Thanks and Links

I rode the MS ride over 150 miles of cloud-shrouded San Francisco, Marin and Sonoma Counties on September 29 and 30; the weather was wonderful, sunny and cool, although we had headwinds for most of the ride up the coast. I doubled-back a few times to catch the view in the opposite direction and ride my committed 175 miles. It was a great weekend for biking. This year, your contributions and matching funds totaled $10,606, which was both over my goal and I was one of the largest fund-raisers for 2007 in Northern California for a fifth consecutive year. I want to thank everyone who made contributions, as well as Adobe for matching employee contributions. The ride this year had 1,300 riders, and received over one million dollars in contributions.

My thanks letter (pdf) references Maureen Manley of Team Copaxone. It was impressive to hear her describe the positive impact that new medications have had on her life. Below are some of the links describing her and Team Copaxone:
