Family and Corporate Sponsor Donations for Max's Ride for ALS

Max's Ride 2018

Join us for the 12th Annual “Max’s Ride” & Concert Benefitting ALS Research & Patient Services

Max Harrison was a man who fought two wars during his short thirty-six years of life. In the 1990's he served in the Army and was deployed to Desert Storm. The second battle he fought began at the age of thirty-two when he received the news that he had Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

ALS is a neuromuscular degenerative disease that stops the brain from sending signals to the body's muscles. While the brain and the patient's senses (touch, smell, sight, hearing, and taste) normally remain fully functioning, the patient's voluntary muscles begin to stop working and atrophy. Our bodies require muscles to do pretty much everything, including breathing. ALS is known to be terminal in 2-5 years from diagnosis. Since Lou Gehrig lost his battle with ALS over 75 years ago, very few research breakthroughs have occurred. 

From the moment Max was diagnosed, he vowed to educate and raise funds for research and patient services. Max lost his battle with ALS in November of 2006 but with your help his legacy will live on across the USA.

As a company and/or corporation sponsoring Max's Ride for ALS, what's in it for you?

  • Funds you help raise go to research and patient services locally
  • Your name is displayed prominently in a variety of ways as a caring contributor
  • You personally help to continue Max's legacy on assisting patients and families affected by ALS
  • A tax deductible receipt upon request from the ALS Association of Texas

Max's Ride will be held rain or shine on Saturday, April 21, 2018 beginning at Cowboy Harley-Davidson of Austin, Texas. Opening ceremonies will include a Salute to our Military prior to the Ride, Veterans information, and a DJ. A benefit Concert with an incredible Silent Auction will be waiting back at Cowboy Harley-Davidson of Austin, TX when the riders complete the route. So even if you don't "ride" come on out for an amazing, family-friendly concert and a day filled with FUN!

Proceeds are donated to the nonprofit organization ALS Association of Texas to assist patients and families locally.
