|July 6, 2004, Pamplona, Spain – Ray Sabbatini, a man stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, will realize a long cherished dream this week when he participates in the world famous ‘Running of the Bulls’ at the Feast of San Fermin festival, Pamplona, Spain. Ray joins thousands of the brave and downright foolhardy as he risks a gorging for a worthy cause. |
“If this is what I have to do to bring MS Awareness into the spotlight, so be it!' said Sabbatini, 36 from Wisconsin, who was diagnosed with the disease last year. He is attempting to raise $100,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (http://www.nmss.org/).
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system in which the insulation around the nerves is damaged or destroyed, resulting in messages from the brain being lost or interrupted.
“I appreciate life more… just because you have MS, doesn’t mean you have to stop living your dreams,” said Sabbatini. “We all should appreciate life and live each day to the fullest, no matter what our circumstances may be.”
Earlier this year, Sabbatini approached online casino, GoldenPalace.com, asking them to help him live his dream. The Golden Palace team were so impressed by his indomitable spirit that they decided to go a step further and send a team to Pamplona in effort to raise more money. For every runner that wears a shirt, Golden Palace Casino will pledge $10 to the MS cause.
Joining GoldenPalace.com and running alongside Sabbatini in GoldenPalace.com apparel will be a host of big names and stars, including legendary basket player, former NBA Champion and showman, Dennis Rodman. Rodman made a name for himself through his amazing talent on the basketball court, tie-dye hair colors, tattoos, and many body piercings. Rodman is sure to attract global media as he takes on the Pamplona bulls.
GoldenPalace.com is leading a new trend of online casinos with a sense of social responsibility in an industry not traditionally associated with such values. Richard Rowe, GoldenPalace.com CEO, said: “Helping people fulfill their dreams is part of the Golden Palace philosophy. That’s why we’re going to Pamplona ourselves to cheer Ray on. Everyone should get together to fight this debilitating disease.”
