Welcome to Kurt Martinson's Personal (but not too personal) Page
Hello everyone and happy 2022 (and goodbye COVID?)
I am starting earlier than ever this year trying to outdo our previous fundraising efforts. As you may know, we set a new record in our fundraising efforts last year by raising $1.583 million dollars. This year we are shooting for $1.75 million!!! Some of this money goes directly to funding research which is happening right here in Minnesota while some goes towards purchasing equipment to help those dealing with ALS stay in their homes.
How did I get involved...
No, I didn't have a family member with ALS nor did I even know anyone with the disease. I love snowmobiling and I was told about this event where we can ride for a cause. Ironically, I also helped open the first Black Woods restaurant back in the early 1990's in Two Harbors. So, I signed up and was hooked! Thru this event I got to know people battling ALS and see what it does to them and their families. This has made me even more determined to do what I can to help by asking you all to donate what you can to help others. This is not your typical fundraiser where your donation is spent on administration and red tape. Well over 80% of what you donate goes directly to the cause thanks to our fantastic corporate sponsors (I encourage you to all look at the list on the website and support them as well).
So, thank you everyone that has supported my part in this fight and for those who are looking at being a first time donor, it is very much worth it! Please donate what you can and lets work towards riding for fun and putting ALS behind us!
