Jan 4, 2019
by Sarah Moore  

Wow, the mountain bike community truly showed it's heart for one of our own the last few weeks. As you may have read Mountain Bike Photographer Colin Meagher is battling ALS, so his friends put together a fundraiser to help with medical costs and ALS research. It's a disease without a cure.

Colin and family are overwhelmed by the response to the GoFundMe. Thank you to all of you who have donated! Since the fundraiser launched, the organizers have had a few more generous bike friends reach out wanting to donate items to the raffle. So they're extending the raffle by a week. You'll now have until January 11th to donate for a chance to win the awesome prizes below.

Brook McDonald’s custom Mondraker Summum frame and shock from Lenzerheide DH World Champs 2018 (the back-up). Brook and his team MS Mondraker wanted to do something special, because he and Colin have worked together, shared tight quarters and made some awesome images since the beginning of Brook's career.

How it works: 

For every $10 donated between 12–17–18 and 11:59pm (PST) of 01–10–19, you’ll get one entry into the raffle. $100 = 10 entries (math, bro)

 The winners will be selected at random. 

Some prize packs are only available to ship to North America. Winners outside of North America will receive the next available prize pack (or pieces of it). All applicable taxes will be the winner’s responsibilities.

 Just listened to his interview on The Inside Line podcast. Seems like such a great guy who's given a lot to the sport. Glad to see the industry come together to support one of its legends.

 For anybody who wants to see how devastating this illness can be, watch “Gleason” on Netflix. It had a huge impact on my level of compassion for people who are fighting ALS and similar ailments. There needs to be a level of awareness that’s greater than it is today so that we can all band together to fight this

 A good friend died from ALS a few months ago... it's not funny. I know there's no cure but we shore can make it a bit easier for those who suffer. If i come to win any prize i'll donate the value of it back to Colin... mark my words.

 Ok, we have until next Friday to help support Colin and his family. Thank you Sarah Moore and Pinkbike for doing something right. Doing something bigger than just parts and riding. A worldwide community that maybe sticks together just a little bit.

 Colin introduced me to the fine art of huckleberry picking during the Trans BC Enduro. Let's help him get back out there!

 Of all the different horrible things out there, there is something particularly horrific about ALS. It's one of those that genuinely frightens me. I know that Colin and his family are in for a hell of a battle and it's cool to see so much support. Probably going to cave and make donation #4 since this is still up.

 @Getradbro: Ah, just checked the website... BC edition, has 140mm rear. That makes more sense. I missed that... Was thinking something like the normal thunderbolt's 120mm, hence the confusion lol
