On Sept 16th, this will be my 11th year riding in support of this cause and to help end Multiple Sclerosis. This year there is a very strong possibilty that my team (The Blazing Saddlesores) will break the $200,000 for historical money raised!! That is a pretty big number and something that I am very proud to be part of. I have already donated and committed to do this.
You are also invited to join my team and ride we’d love to have you out there. Waskesiu is beautiful and the ride is really nice. Get in touch.
My personal goal this year is to break the $10,000 mark. I’ve came close a few time and have done it once before. There are 2 ways you can donate and a tax deductible receipt will be mailed to you shortly after.
The first is follow this link and do it online (super easy and secure): http://mssoc.convio.net/site/TR/BikeTour/SaskatchewanDivision?px=1001981&pg=personal&fr_id=5635
The second way is to make a cheque out to “The MS Society” and mail it me - 518 Hawkside Mews, Calgary, Alberta, T3G 3R9
Make sure you check if your company will match your donation.
The money we that is raise will help fund things like:
Canadian MS research - With your support, we are able to fund world-leading Canadian MS research that is integral to finding the cause and cure of MS.
Programs and services - Your support allows us to offer a variety of programs to help Canadian’s affected by MS effectively manage and cope with the disease.
Advocacy work - We are advocating for more flexible income and employment supports for Canadians affected by MS, caregiver supports, coordinated care, and more investment from our governments in MS research.
As you probably know, I ride because this disease has a personal connection to me and my family. My mother has lived with MS for over 35 years. Please help by donating what you can.
Thank you for your support.
