Injury Care EMS is excited to participate in the fight against ALS with this year’s Tour d’Funk Treasure Valley Ride to Defeat ALS on May 11,2019.
The one day cycling event includes participant support from start to finish, with crewed stops, volunteers, and a safety team. The ride starts and finishes at Stephen C. Guerber Park at the Sunrise and Sunset shelters in Eagle, ID. We will be raising funds to fight Lou Gehrig’s disease.
We encourage our friends living with ALS and their caregivers to join the event.

Suggested Fundraising Minimum
We ask that each participant raise a suggested minimum of $150 as they prepare for the Ride. Fundraising for The ALS Association is a direct way of supporting our mission, but with each person you ask to support you, you are also spreading important awareness for ALS. Fundraising is easy and fun — and we are here to help you get started and to surpass this fundraising goal!
This year we have a new way to register called “Supported Rider.” As a Supported Rider there will be no up-front registration cost, but a fundraising minimum of $250 will be mandatory. For questions about this option, please contact Amara Bates at (509) 863-4321 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
