The Matt Pack
Team Matt Pack is back. Last year's ride was impacted by the virus, but it went on as a virtual event. The ride this year will be 100% virtual with no required fundraising goals or registration fees.
As most of you may know, Matt's battle with brain cancer ended in 2017. He fought the horrific disease with amazing grace, determination and spirit. The Matt Pack continues to ride in his memory and in support of his father Bill, whose treatment has been most positive, and all those others who are now suffering from this disease or who may be diagnosed in the future. A cure will come. Our efforts will help.
It's now time for us to get off our couches and to start getting ready for this year's virtual ride. The ride date is May 16, 2021. I can envision Matt Pack rides in MA, NY, TX and CA. I will plan on hosting a short destination ride, possibly to the Nashoba Valley Winery for a picnic lunch.
I hope all of our past riders will be able to participate again, and that new team members who have not been able to come to MA for the ride can participate in their local areas. I would also hope that our past team members and donors may be able to recruit some friends and family to join in the ride.
Let's go Matt Pack. Let's get registered, let's get fit, let's get going on reaching our fundraising goals, whatever they may be.
