    DA, for those who go to New York the funds we riase and the video clips are done before we arrive. Once the evening festivities are over and those with blessedly large hearts and pockets leave we can then go out together with our CC buds. It's a good time to meet people you have only met via the net or phone before. And as one quad said last year, "you know you're with friends when you can order buffalo wings and eat them at the bar instead of taking them home and wrapping yourself in a dish towel before chowing down."

    So for those who can make it there is a little time after Wise, hopefully, gives us all an update on where things stand around the world to get to the rally. Once the rally is over this is many peoples' only vacation because of family budgets. And it is very near to ferries to Liberty Island and many family attractions.
    sue, we already have a date so everyone can meet. the post cure cruise and the wheelchair bon fire.

        Jack, we will be renting the Winter Garden again in the World Financial Center next to Ground Zero. Now that people know the place, it should be easier to arrange. Wise.

          Will we be getting a group rate at Embassy Suites again? I think this time I will fly to NY and stay in the city.

              Two things...

              1) Seriously though, is this rally only about SCI or stem cells in general or what? I ask because I have CP; I do receive regular emails about stem cell research from CP organizations, so many CP advocates DO feel this is also about us--whether that seems like an intrusive question or not (don't mean it that way).

              2) I have friends working for a health-supplement company in NY who might be willing to contribute a basket, who should they contact? And would supplements (amino acids, vitamins, etc) be welcome?

              Thanks,
              TJ

                      Joe,

                      People who raise money for the rally, any amount of money, can attend. Many people raised $50 or whatever they can. They submit pledges to Patricia Morton at the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience. If they achieve what they pledge, that is great. If not, that is also great.

                      You can do this by email, phone, or mail. The contact information is at http://keck.rutgers.edu/contact/contact.html

                      The amounts that you raise will be tax deductable and contributed to the Spinal Cord Injury Project at Rutgers University.

                      Wise.

                        MrSoul,

                        This is a rally to benefit spinal cord injury research and anything that affect the spinal cord. I believe that the research is relevant to people with cerebral palsy as well. It is an opportunity for the community to get together and to meet each other, as well as raise some money.

                        Thank you very much for the suggestion of a health-food supplement company contributing a basket. Write to Patricia Morton at SCIProject@biology.rutgers.edu and she can help you further to figure out the best way that they can contribute.

                        Wise.

                          There is a strong chance that I may be in NYC in June - can someone from outside the States come to the rally? Just wondering. It would be nice to have the chance to meet other CCers if I am there.

                            carbar, of course people from outside the US come to the rally! You would be very welcome indeed. We had people from Norway and Canada, and possibly other places come to the rally last year. Wise.

                              Liz, you can email Ptaricia Morton at the address Wise posted below and ask to be put on the SCI Project's mailing list.

                                Wise or Patricia

                                Would it be possible for you guys to come up with some kind of raffle? between work and all the people I know I could sell tons of raffle tickets.
