Why I’m cycling to end MS
Thank you so much for your sponsorship and donation to this cause. Until one experiences a degenerative disease fsuch as MS first hand, whether it be a family member or a freind, it is difficult to comprehend the challenges that those inflicted face every day. I realize that I am so blessed to be in good health while at the same time, I am amazed by the courage that that thiose inflicted with MS pass on to the rest of us. Like many, I have always taken my relatively good heath for granted so I was persoanlly shocked to learn that Canada has the highest rate 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.
Last year was the first year that I rode and I was touched by the support I recieved and the perosnal stories that were shared with me me by those diectly impcated by MS. 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. I am confident that together, we can all work to help find a cure in the near future.
