Dear Family and Friends;
This year is now our 12th year of participation in the MS Bike Tour to raise key funds in the fight against MS. As most of you know, in past years we have participated in the Niagara MS Bike Tour later in the summer. This year, we will be participating at the MS Bike Tour in Prince Edward County on July 7th, 2019. We will once again be biking with Laurie’s sister Pam and her husband Stan who have been a great support to us for this event, not only in fundraising with us, but also in biking with us, whether there be rain or shine.
Through your generous support, over the previous 11 years of participating in the MS Bike Tour, each of you has helped us raise over $64,365! Last year alone we raised just shy of $8,000 and I raised over $5,000 for the second year in a row. What an amazing accomplishment and show of support in raising money for those suffering with MS. And once again, we are asking for your financial & prayerful support as we have set our sights to get to the $10,000 mark. More importantly, with your support, we are hoping the impact of our efforts will make a difference in the fight against multiple sclerosis as we get friends and family together to cycle and help raise funds for MS Research & Support.
Feel comfortable in knowing that your donation towards this fundraising event provides both support and services to help those living with this disease, as well as funding research which has three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, to repair nervous system damage caused by MS and to stop MS attacks. Researchers continue to make inroads in understanding and fighting MS as well as developing new medications with the goal to finding a cure for this unpredictable disease. Events like the MS Bike Tour are key events in generating funds for the MS Society and in helping to fund research initiatives that are of great importance in the global fight against multiple sclerosis.
As the MS Bike Tour is fast approaching, don’t delay. It is easy to forget. Please consider an online donation today. Secure online donations can be made by credit card and an electronic tax receipt will be sent to you by e-mail for your donation.
Your support will make a difference - be a part of a future without MS.
Take a few moments now to join this very worthy cause. Help bring an end to MS.
