Making a meaningful contribution to the world in which we live
FOR PETE’S SAKE
A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In 2010, McCrary and Magna’s friend, Pete Zucker, an avid cyclist and triathlete and member of the Wells Fargo Cycling team and Forward Motion Race Club, was diagnosed with ALS. McCrary says “Pete’s fight has provided us with the inspiration and motivation to devote our efforts to a cause much bigger than the sport of running or cycling. We are committed to raising funds and awareness about ALS. We are essentially no closer to a cure than we were more than 70 years ago when Lou Gehrig fought the disease.
Katalyst Events has developed a fundraising initiative For Pete’s Sake to provide athletes competing in the races an opportunity to donate to support Augie's Quest, and ALS TDI - organizations dedicated to the global fight against ALS.
In addition, Katalyst Events will donate 10% of its net proceeds to these foundations.
