As I hinted a couple of months ago, I’m planning a rather epic cycling tour this summer to raise awareness of and funds for multiple system atrophy, the disease that killed my dad. Since this is a health IT blog, I don’t want to keep going off-topic to promote that effort, so I’ve set up a tour site, blog and Facebook page just for that purpose. The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition also put out a press release on my behalf. Check those links out, like the Facebook page and please share freely.
I could still use some sponsors for the tour, particularly a hotel chain that has locations in places such as Valparaiso, Ind., Kokomo, Ind., Celina, Ohio, Kettering, Ohio, Columbus, Ohio, Waynesburg, Pa., Grantsville, Md., and Hagerstown, Md. Jersey/t-shirt printers would be welcome, too.
Thanks for your attention. And now back to health IT. Hey, here’s a health IT connection: If any quantified selfers want to help me track my health and performance during the tour, please let me know.
