Rivalry Ride Story

Hi, my name is Sam Sugerman.

Seven years ago, for my Bar Mitzvah project, my family, friends, and I rode our bikes from Spartan Stadium to the Big House on the day of the Michigan – Michigan State football game.

Due to the incredible response and the generosity of so many people, we raised over $8,000 for Ann Arbor Active Against ALS. Because this ride was such a success we decided to make it an annual event! To date, we have raised over $75,000.

Awareness of ALS has grown through events like the Ice Bucket Challenge, and the rivalry ride. As the rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State heats up, we hope to involve more Spartans and Wolverines in the effort to represent their schools and ride TOGETHER for ALS Research.
