Help Colin Battle This Disease

Colin Meagher is battling ALS, a debilitating disease that threatens his life and his family’s future. You can help. Moreover, Colin and his family need your help.

Colin is a father and husband, an acclaimed photographer, and a true friend and mentor to countless mountain bikers around the world. ALS is robbing Colin of his life, his livelihood and, if we don’t pitch in to help with his rapidly-growing medical expenses, his family’s finances.

 ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. There is no cure. Instead, there are mounting medical bills.  

While Colin has worked through the early stages of the disease, ALS has effectively taken his hands and arms from him. Colin soon won’t be able to work and we won't be seeing any more of his photos. Moreover, the medical costs of his treatment continue to rise. Colin and his family need help in offsetting those costs so that Colin can have an easier time as the disease takes hold.

Your donation will be used to help with medical costs to slow down ALS’ effects on Colin, to retrofit his house, and to purchase him a motorized wheel chair, wheelchair accessible car…and the many other items ALS makes necessary. 

 
We will donate a percentage of all contributions to  http://www.alsa.org, to help find a cure.

Hi everyone!

Wow, the mountain bike community truly showed it's heart for one of our own the last few weeks.

Colin and family are overwhelmed by the response to the GoFundMe. Since the fundraiser launched, we've had a few more generous bike friends reach out wanting to donate items to the raffle. So we're extending the raffle by a week.

Donors now have a chance to win Brook McDonald's Custom Mondraker frame (the back-up) from last year's DH World Champs. A truly generous donation from "The Bulldog" himself!

A Chris King build kit, feel the buzz.

The unreleased Yakima 4x HangOver upright bike rack.

If you've already donated, you're entered to win the new prizes as well as everything else. But every $10 is another chance to win.

Thank you so much for supporting Colin and ALS research.
