The holiday season is a special time to stop and think about the gifts in our lives. The gift of family and friends and the things we hold most dear.
This year, more than ever, our hearts are overflowing with gratitude for the love and commitment of our Ride Family.
With donations continuing to roll in, we are in awe of your dedication and generosity and so thankful for those who support you. And we are thrilled beyond measure to officially announce that we have surpassed our very aggressive $1.5 million goal!
Fundraising for the 2021 NEPR currently stands at an incredible $1,608,051!
That doesn’t mean we are ready to stop, especially with a match being announced by The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Every single dollar we raise on Giving Tuesday (November 30th) will be matched at the Foundation level by an anonymous set of donors!
If you have friends and family who may have forgotten to donate…or just need an extra nudge, this is your chance to ask one more time. If there are others who have already given but may love the idea of $10 becoming $20 toward the cure, please be sure to let them know about the match as well.
Though the matched portion will go directly to MJFF as one large donation, all donations made to your personal fundraising page on 11/30/21 will be credited to you and count toward that match!
If you have donors who prefer to write a check, as long as that check is dated on 11/30/21, it will also count. Checks must be made out to MJFF and mailed in with our NEPR Tracking Form (available here).
If you miss the match, don’t worry. Donations toward our 2021 Ride will still be accepted right through the end of the year. Let’s see just how far this incredible Ride Family can go when it comes to finding a cure for those we love…especially at this most special time of the year.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
