TransNH Muscular Dystrophy Fundraiser- We’re off to a great start!

For ten years, my fiance, Bryan Giard, has raised funds for the Muscular Dystophy Association (MDA).  The Trans NH Bike Ride is a three day, 250 mile fundraising ride.  Each rider must raise $750 – Bryan’s personal goal this year is to raise $2,500. The funds the Trans NH Bike Ride donates to the MDA provides help and hope in many ways:

  • Clinics – expert specialized medical care
  • Research – cutting-edge investigation into treatments and cures
  • Support – help obtaining equipment and coping with challenges
  • Camp – a barrier-free week of fun, friendship and laughter for kids

Help us reach (and surpass!) Bryan’s goal.  We look forward to tipping back a cold one at Red Hook with you at the end of the ride!

How to Help:

Riding is the easy part. (Cheering Bryan on is even easier!) It’s the fundraising that can be difficult.  But with your help, you can help us reach and surpass our goal. We’re almost at the fundraising finish line!


  1. Visit Bryan’s secure fundraising page.  This will automatically send a receipt to your email for tax purposes.
  2. Make a check payable to Trans NH Bike Ride and mail it to Starry Brook, I’ll pass it to Bryan.

2012 Ride Dedication

Anthony Jennings Ride Dedication
Your donation will go a long way in the fight against neuromuscular disease!

This year’s ride is dedicated to Anthony Jennings. He was diagnosed at 9 years old with Becker Muscular Dystrophy. “Can’t” is not in Anthony’s vocabulary, but rather “we’ll find a way.”  True to form, despite the difficulties of BMD (needing assistance to pour drinks, get out of a chair, or walk from one end of school to the other), Anthony is a member of the PVC Pirates FIRST Robotics team, a recent inductee into the National Honor Society, Manager of the LHS Varsity Baseball team, and the radio voice of Lancer football.


Event Date: June 22 – 24

Start: Canadian border

End: Portsmouth, NH

I’m counting on YOU to join me in congratulating all of the riders at 1:30pm as they are escorted by fire truck to the finish line at Red Hook Brewery.
