Why I’m cycling to end MS
There are many good reasons to do this but first and foremost is for my wife Debbie, who was diagnosed 18 years ago. As I said last year, she has handled this disease with with true grace and bravery over the years. Deb did many years of volunteer work for the MS Society from 2001 until 2009. To all my friends and family who supported me last year, many, many thanks.
Participating in this event is one small contribution I can do to raise awareness of MS. I am also very fortunate to again join the Easy Riders team with old friends Tim Baillie, Karen Belcourt, Pat and Gerry Wilson.
Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Bike, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
