RivalryRideFinish2013UPDATE: “Thank you to everyone who supported the Second Annual Stadium to Stadium Rivalry Ride! We are so appreciative of all who made donations to support Ann Arbor Active Against ALS. We raised nearly $5000!

 We also appreciate all those who met us at the Big House on a dark, cold, rainy, morning to send us off to Spartan Stadium! Despite the weather it was a great ride through the rolling hills between Ann Arbor and East Lansing.

 We are looking forward to next year’s ride — October 25, 2014 — and are hoping to add even more riders.  Please let us know if you want to ride with us.  Email [email protected]” – Sam & his family

Sam_IMG_8269_Fall 2012_opt My name is Sam Sugerman. Last year 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 $8000 for Ann Arbor Active Against ALS. Because this ride was such a success we decided to make it an annual event!

Please Support Me – Make a Pledge HERE!

On November 2, 2013, the date of the Michigan – Michigan State football game, we will be riding from the Big House in Ann Arbor to Spartan Stadium in East Lansing.

We plan to leave the Big House at 7:30 a.m.and follow the same scenic, rural, and mostly paved and flat, route for about 65 miles to East Lansing.

We would like to encourage anyone interested to ride with us! However, everyone will need to arrange for their own transportation home from East Lansing. To increase awareness of ALS, and to raise money for ALS research, we ask that each rider solicit pledges to donate to Ann Arbor Active Against ALS.

Thank you for your support -

Sam Sugerman and Family
