The Chronicle first reported earlier this year that Scappoose resident Tami Garner would embark on a fifty state journey to raise $50,000 for the NW Chapter of ALS as a tribute to her husband.

Riding Break

Tami Garner takes a break from her ride in Richmond, Washington, the 49th state in her journey.

When her husband Gary Garner died from ALS/ Lou Gehrig’s disease on March 20, Garner, 53, vowed to complete his bucket list of riding her bike in all 50 states.

Since May 1, Garner has ridden in 49 states and has raised $11,600 for ALS. She will ride her 50th state, Alaska, at noon Wednesday Sept.1, along Tony Knowles Trail in Anchorage.
