Why I’m gearing up for the big 150 KM ride.
Every day 3 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 families who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.
Almost everyone is touched by knowing someone with MS; a family member, friend, neighbour or colleague. This has instilled passion in me to complete this ride in the hopes of doing what I can to assist in someday eliminating the impacts of this disease or the disease itself.
Your dollars really do make a difference.
When you pledge me in the MS Bike, your funds are invested into groundbreaking MS research and services for the 100,000 Canadians living with MS.
Services and programs your fundraising supports:
- Financial assistance for special equipment and home care
- Supportive counselling for all those affected by MS
- Self-help groups and recreational programs for people with MS
- Government advocacy for people living with MS
These recent headlines of Canadaian MS research support how your funding can provide great value and hope;
