Team Silver

Why do I ride? Here's some answers!:

The photo above is a wonderful group of folks who comprised Team Silver. This team and I shared our experiences last year when Team Silver pulled together to successfully support the fight against AIDS by pedaling to Boston and raising $45,000 along the way. None of this would have been possible without you our generous donors.

This June I rode 100 Miles out to Montauk to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Along the way with your help, I managed to collect $2,500 to combat the disease. This money has already gone a long way to help those afflicted with the disease! And I thank You!

The End

I will not belabor you with endless statistics, but last year over 103,000 Americans were diagnosed with blood related cancers, 57,000 died of them. As tragic as this figure is, it represents a dramatically improved survival rate over statistics from a mere 5 years ago.

Much of the credit for this improvement can be laid at the feet of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's fund raising efforts and your generosity in supporting them! Their work is so important and together with your help we have had a positive impact on our world!

The Guide Dog Foundation

But today I am launching a new crusade and undertaking a new challenge and I pray that you will join me in it. I will be riding this time in support of the Guide Dog Foundation, in the Second Sight Bike-A-Thon. September 14th. It will be a 65 mile ride throughout Suffolk County and it goes off Rain or Shine!

So once again I am asking you to reach into your pockets as deeply as you can and join me in supporting the Guide Dog Foundation. Since 1946, the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, Inc. has provided guide dogs free of charge to blind people who seek enhanced mobility and independence. They are supported entirely by donations from generous individuals, corporations and foundations and like so many wonderful, positive forces for good, they receive absolutely no government funding!

So once again it is up to you and I to make the difference. I attempt to make a difference by putting my physical self on the line, pushing the envelope with this old body's ability to pedal a bicycle, and it is my hope that you will join me putting yourself on the line, participating with me financially.

Favorite Ride

Please take a moment to reach into your pockets or checkbook and make a donation to the Guide Dog Foundation. Not to support me, but rather to enable a blind person to achieve the freedom of mobility we enjoy and take so much for granted. Make a difference with a simple personal donation made as a gesture of peace and an affirmation of humanity's potential for compassion.

Please donít wait for "tomorrow" somehow that tomorrow seems never to come. Simply decide what you can afford to give, and then please do so.

Decide what you can afford to give, then fill out a check made payable to: The Guide Dog Foundation. OK then you'll also have to put a stamp on the envelope and mail it to me. My Address is:

Gary Miller
616 Harvard Ave.
Baldwin, NY 11510

Please remember that this gift is not for me. It is your contribution. YOU, giving of yourself, to simply, in some small way, make this a better world.
