Thanks for your generous donation
July 7, 2010 - Special thanks go out to Jason Lewis, who just did "Ride the Rockies" an annual bike tour through Colorado.This year the trek was 533 miles from Grand Junction toTelluride and finishing in Salida. Over the course of the event Jason collected money for the Jonesy Trust, matching funds collected dollar for dollar personally. Below are Jason's comments:
I am glad to say that through the generosity of friends, family and colleagues, we were able to raise a total of $15,000 for Michael and his family. Even though I have never met him, knowing that he is a friend of David Lausa's and a rugger is all I need to know to help.On the ride, there were moments that I was pretty wiped but thinking of Michael and how he would give anything to feel the exhaustion I felt was all I needed to keep going.I wish him and his family the best and thank them for letting me and my friends contribute to his efforts.
5-18-2010 - The 1st "Jonesy Open" at Capital Hills was a smashing success. Thank you to Mayor Jennings, Steve Vatter & the Capital Hills staff, Paul Bulmer and The Albany Knicks Fundraising committee, corporate sponsors and our family and friends
"Right now, Michael’s body may not be able to move – but his spirit will move mountains- that spirit will be the fuel our family needs to face the lifetime of challenges that lay ahead because ‘this is forever’. We’ll do it with grit and grace and advocacy and perseverance. And that is where you all come in- we will survive by relying on the kindness and generosity of others now and in the weeks, months and years to come. we know you will be with us on every step of Jonesy’s Journey"
Thanks again to Jennifer Gish who reported our story in the Times Union with accuracy and compassion.
