Help TikiTender give a little back....

My best good friend, Steve, rode in his first MS-150 last year. He will be riding again this year (see his email below). I am asking those that are able and willing, to support his efforts in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. You can assist with a monetary donation, or by simply passing this along to your friends.

Aloha nui loa,


Hello Everyone,
Well, it is nearly that time of year again...time for you to think about me in spandex - ack :))
As most of you know, I rode in my first MS 150 bike ride last year. It was a wonderful experience. We actually rode 183 miles - 101 miles on day 1 and 82 miles on day 2. Our team ended up raising over $35,000 that was directed towards MS research taking place at Stanford University.
On September 6th and 7th, a couple thousand of my closest friends and I will take off for another 150+ mile ride...all to raise money to help fight multiple sclerosis. Again this year, the sponsor of the team I ride on, Dr. Ted Higgins, is matching all funds raised by his team. So, every dollar you donate, will turn into two.
To donate, simply click on the link below which should take you directly to my personal page. Not only can you see a few pics of me and my riding buddies, you can also make a donation to help me reach my goal of raising $1,000 for this event. Remember, all donations are tax deductible!
Thank you in advance for your donations, thoughts, and prayers as I prepare for my second MS 150 ride. I will let everyone know how it goes.
Steven W. Tanner

Thanks brother Tiki for spreading the word...and thanks to those crazy Tiki fans for your support. We're finishing up our training this week, will keep the legs fresh with some easy rides next week, and then make the 150+ journey on Sep 6-7, all to help fight Multiple Sclerosis. A Kansas City brewery, Boulevard Brewing Company, hosts a tent at the overnight on day 1. A cold beer is a good motivator at about mile 70...thanks again for the donations and support in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Tanner
