Thank you for showing your support and stopping by my Campaign.
The long term goal is to start a foundation to raise money towards finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
To do this, my plan is to have several fundraising events a year i.e... BBQ Cook-off, Casino Nights, Musical events, with all proceeds used to benefit the fight for a cure of Multiple Sclerosis.
The first event is going to be called 'DerekEbikes4Us'. The scope of this event consists of my (Derek Evans, a Multiple Sclerosis patient) riding an electric bike approximately 4200 miles across country from Key West to Seattle beginning February 2013. I plan to film interviews with all of the people I meet along the way and post it on the web site, have a daily video blog and just raise as much awareness about the cause as possible.
This campaign is designed to obtain the funding to get the first fundraising event off the ground. I intend to attract people that feel as strongly about finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis and spreading awareness as I do and ask them to donate and be a large part of this dream.
These are the items that are still needed to start the fundraising for the DerekEbikes4Us event.
- Web Site construction
- Web Site Hosting
- Dedicated phone line
- P.O. Box
- A 501c3 attorney, (tax deductible status).
The plan is to get started with everything the day the funds become available. The web site will be up within thirty days, which is also about as long as it will take for the attorney to attain the 501c3. The P.O. Box and phone will be acquired within the first week and all contact info will be given out on the Facebook and Twitter pages.
Thank you for your support on behalf of all Multiple Sclerosis patients who struggle each day. Together, we can beat this!
