2018 MS Bike - Grand Bend to London!
Last year was even more successful then the year before! We got more people involved with the ride, we got more people to donate and even made the top 100 fundraisers for the ride! Absolutely awesome, so we are heading back out on the road again this year. We will probably say this again, but maybe this will be the year we finally end MS once and for all.
Lets see if we can crack $3000.00 this year.
THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY THAT DONATES ---- YOU ARE AWESOME!
Why I'm gearing up
This is year #4 with Team Butt Ugly - The Best Team on the Ride! We raised a staggering amount of money last year and are already at $40,000 this year! The ride is long and tiring, but the team is huge so you can ride with many different people and everybody has a unique story as to why they ride. We have members that just wanted to ride, riders that support their kids and grand kids, riders with MS, riders that support their friends with MS, and riders that are just truly awesome people! It is an honour to ride with such a diverse and amazing group of people.
While MS has effected some friends and co-workers, the reason I ride is because of the interesting relationship between MS and CMT. CMT (Charot Marie Tooth), even though these are very different diseases they have incredible similarities. In Smart Panda family several members have CMT and the impacts are felt every day. With over 2.5 million people dealing with MS and 2.6 million people dealing with CMT both of which are unpredictable illnesses that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We need to find a cure - and we will.
Your support means families who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.
