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’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
…a future without MS
I’ve registered for the MS Bike Tour to fulfill a personal challenge, and to help the MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families. This will be my ninth year participating in this event. Having an immediate family member dealing with MS, this event means so much to me. There have been so many strides made in finding a cure for MS that all donations made will go a long way in finding the cure to bring this disease to it's knees. I hope you will support me or my team mates to help find the cure that so many people are waiting for. 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.
I am part of the MS Bike Tour because I believe in a future without multiple sclerosis – and with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
