Can you imagine?
Having Multiple Sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It is estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
Let's work together to find a future without MS
With the support of my family,friends and colleagues I am back in the saddle and will be participating in the MS Bike Ride.The Ride is a 2 day cycling journey of 185 km from Airdrie to Olds (June 23 and 24th 2018) allowing me to fulfill a personal challenge, and to help the MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families.
The MS Bike Ride is an opportunity for me to honour those who have MS and let them know they are not alone in facing the challenges of MS. During my training and the ride I will be thinking of Donald, Ernie, Heather, Peggy, Shannan, Carol and Robin who are very special people that inspire me to " pay it forward" and contribute to the MS Society.
The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Bike Tour has been a critical part of the MS Society's fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks.
By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with Multiple Sclerosis.
Please help me honour family,friends and colleagues who have MS and together lets "pay it forward" and donate to help make a difference.
I am part of the MS Bike Ride because I believe in a future without Multiple Sclerosis and with your help we can get there.
Thank you for your support.
