Welcome to Tim Vogel's web page for my 26th American Lung Association's Bike Trek Across Maine.
In 2020, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Trek has became a virtual ride. The Trek will also be virtual in 2021. There will not be 2,000+ Trek riders gathering to ride on Father’s Day Weekend. However, for my 26th Trek, I again have accepted the challenge to push my riding mileage far beyond the Trek’s 180 miles.
I ask for your support for my Trek Across Maine. Your contribution will support lung disease research, especially American Lung Association’s COVID-19 Action Initiative. This $25 million investment will address COVID-19 and protect against future respiratory virus pandemics. Together, we are helping to save lives during this public health crisis.
I am riding in memory of my grandfather Ray Vogel who died of emphysema, and my mother Elsie Vogel who died in 2019 of cardio-pulmonary failure. I also ride for Dahlov Aurora Wyatt—my 3-year old granddaughter. May she live many years with healthy lungs.
Please make a tax-deductible contribution to help me pass the $750 requirement on the way to reaching my $2,600 fund raising goal. I appreciate your donation. I will think of you during my 180+ mile Trek Across Maine.
Thank you for your generous contribution to the great work of the Trek Across Maine. Tim Vogel
