Welcome to my MS CCSVI research fundraising blog. I am currently training for a double (ultra - 4.8 mile swim, 224 mile bike, 52.4 mile run) ironman in September of 2010 in an effort to fundraise for MS CCSVI research. You can check out my fundraiser site at http://www.microgiving.com/profile/chuck. I suggest clicking on the "About Me" tab as the MicroGiving.com templates were a little limiting so the profile page did not allow me to add all the content I wanted to add. MicroGiving.com does not keep any of the donations for administration/overhead fee. That means 100% of your donation goes directly to fund CCSVI MS research. For more information about CCSVI you can go to http://csvi-ms.net/en/content/ccsvi-huge-breakthrough-ms. Please help spread the word about my fundraising efforts. Thanks.

7/22 - Rest day & fundraiser update

Today was mostly a rest day. I did do a core workout, but my hips were hurting most of the day. I did end up using Kenisio tape to tape up my right hip. I have to say that it really helps when taped properly. I have to give a big shout out to Jerry Latimer from TOSPT http://www.tospt.com/jerryLatimer for introducing me to Kenisio tape when treating me leading up to Kona last year. I am looking forward to seeing how it feels over the next day or two.

The fundraiser has slowed a bit, but hope is on the horizon. The Tallahassee Democrat contacted me and said they wanted to run an article on the MS Fundraiser effort.

Chris Brown from Quintana Roo Bikes hooked me up with a posting on their blog:


Chris is a great guy and uber cyclist. He split 57 min for his Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon bike split. His split crushed the professional bike splits at that race...
