News from Sally Neas!!!!!

By Sandy Schenck

Sally Neas (Support Staff from this past summer…and counselor from 2006) has some exciting news that I would like to share:

Dearest Friends and Family,

This morning was glorious. I got out of lab early, drank a cup of delicious coffee, put on a very flattering pair of bike shorts and took a beautiful 18 mile bike ride atop the Cumberland plateau. Those are the exact perfect conditions to make this announcement: I am going to bike 150 miles in the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s annual “Bike to Jack and Back” ride!!! I will ride October 6-7th as a fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which funds research for a cure while also helping people who currently live with MS lead more fulfilling lives.

Like I said, this is a fundraiser. So, naturally I’ve got to raise some funds. $300 worth of them, to be exact. You all can help me in said “fundraising” by making a donation to the National MS Society. Although I would love any amount, even small donations such as $10 will help in my quest. So, larger donations would be nice… (IT’S TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!) You can mail checks or cash to me. If you do this, let me
know so I’ll be looking for it. If you’re in the Sewanee area, SPO is lovely. If not, here it is:

Or, if you want to put that extra 39 cents into the donation, make one online. Simply copy and paste the following link into your little top-of-the-page thing (navigator? web-broswer? I don’t know what its called):

So, email me back to hear more about the MS 150, my recent biking exploits, to let me know you’re making a donation (this way you will get a lovely, hand written thank you note, made with 100% love!), or just to tell me how your life is going. Seriously, you can just email me to say hey even if you are not making a donation. I won’t judge you. AND BONUS!! SPECIAL OFFER!! If you email me saying you’re sending a donation and express some type of interest, I will tell you the hilarious story
about my first bike down and back up the Cumberland plateau (a pretty classic Sally story…). Thanks for your support everyone!

Much love!
Pura Vida!
