Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis Dear Friends, My name is Ronald Gooden and I'm starting a new race team and in search of sponsorship, Donations, Investors to put this together to go around the U.S. to promote the fight against M.S.The team is called (Racers Against M.S.) R.A.M.S. We are in need of any and all donations (i.e.. Parts, chassis, body, motor, slick wheels. This is a ground floor team to go out and let people know about M.S. and to help fight for a cure...so PLEASE.... HELP THIS CAUSE.... I’m not a non-profit but I am building this truck to travel across the US to promote awareness to Multiple Sclerosis. See I to have MS From what I know, I will be the only traveling car and driver to go out and raise money for MS research. Part of the donations will go back into the truck; it is a 50/50 split. The other part will go to MS research. I'm doing this on my own with the help of my family I'm seeking donations to get this started. So far I have the truck, It's a 1982 GMC S-15, a used pair of circle track tires for the rear, a stock 350 out of a 82 Chevy van along with the tranny. I've tried to get others interested in this venture with no luck. See no one is willing to take a chance on this and me. Most people don't know what Multiple Sclerosis is or what effect it has on the people who have it. I don't want people to feel sorry for me, but I just need help and donations are a part of that help. For your help, Your name will be on the truck and be seen all over at every track I go to...You might be saying and thinking, Yeah right, This is just some guy just trying to get something for nothing, But that's not how it is, I'm just someone who is willing to do anything it takes to make people aware of Multiple Sclerosis and help find a cure. Although all of us diagnosed with MS experience different things, one thing is the same-We have to deal with symptoms, but we have to try and overcome them to make life better. Life offers a lot of great things and it has its downfalls and also great joys. When I was diagnosed with MS in 2000,I was floored. I thought, How could this happen to what and me will I do now. Well after a lot of self-pity and a lot of heartache, I had a few dreams. And I decided to not let it get me down. The dream I had, I saw myself with a drag truck, On the side of that truck was RAMS, Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis. My family and I are going from track to track raising money and awareness to MS and letting people know that it doesn't keep us down. This team, which consists of my wife, my daughter and son-in-law and myself is about helping people not only overcome life's trials, but to help them see that" Yes we can do it ". I want people to see that Multiple Sclerosis doesn't mean we can't fully function and make our dreams come true. I want people to see living proof of this. It won't be easy, But I'm just one man...Trying to make a difference and wanting to see chapters of RAMS all over the world. PLEASE, Help make a difference. Send $1.00 to Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis in care of Ronald Gooden 406 N. Modena St. Gastonia, N.C. 28054

Hello Ron. I know what MS is as in my healthier times, I was an LPN and worked with several patients that had MS. It is a very unkind disease. Then again too, I have met some people who are high functioning and don't let it get them down. There are so many racing teams here in North Carolina. Have you tried people like Kyle Petty? I am sure that one of the higher echilons of racing could grant you sponsorship to make your dreams come true. I will pray about your dilemma. If you keep at it and persevere, God will bring it to fruition! Peace and God bless you Ron!
