Longtime mountain bike photographer Colin Meagher needs your help. If you’re reading this, odds are you’ve probably been touched by Colin’s work. Colin’s photos have graced the pages of mountain bike magazines and websites around the world, including Pinkbike, for more than two decades now.
Colin Meagher is a rider’s rider. A mentor to a hell of a lot of other photographers. And just an incredibly good guy. Now, Colin also has ALS—a disease that is robbing Colin of his life, his livelihood and, if we don’t pitch in to help with his rapidly-growing medical expenses, his family’s finances.
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. There is no cure. Instead, there are mounting medical bills. Colin and his family need help in offsetting those costs.
A group of us, Colin’s friends and supporters from the bike and outdoor industry, have created a GoFundMe page
. Our goal is to raise funds to help with medical costs and many of the other things this disease makes necessary, from home care to necessary devices not available through other means.
We will also donate a percentage of all contributions to www.alsa.org
, to help find a cure.
We’re asking you to rally for Colin and help out with a donation.
For every $10 you donate, you get one entry into the raffle. See below for the list of prize packs. For more information, contact Dave Taylor at email@example.comAwesome Raffle Prizes:More than $18,000 in prizes across 18 different opportunities to win.Most of a New Bike Day
