Can you imagine…a future without MS?  These people can: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukU3fPseCMo

Welcome to Part 2 of my Vancouver BC to Halifax NS journey

 

About a year ago I started across the country on my bicycle to raise funds for MS but I was not able to complete the ride. An impatient driver forced me off the road, near Cobourg, and I had to stop the ride - my knee had twisted and I was unable to ride any further. This year, 2014, the knee has recovered and I am going to finish the ride - one way or another. 

I will continue my own fundraising event to help the MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families - finishing the  6,500 km bicycle ride from English Bay in Vancouver, BC to Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, NS

One of the biggest sources of inspiration for me to get out and finish the ride is Mike Augustine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ai0AFQ_z7E4). Mike came to meet me in Toronto last summer, when I arrived in the Big Smoke. 

This year, 2014,  I will be riding from Cobourg, Ontario to Halifax, NS to finish the ride - however, I am going to have to do this trip in "legs".  

Though my target is to raise over $20,000 for this Cross-Canada adventure, I am still a long way from that goal. I sincerely thank and appreciate all the donations that people made to this ride last year and I will to continue this ride to hold up my commitment to finish the ride. If you have discovered any additional pennies lying around that you could spare to the cause, they will be greatly appreciated.  

And for those who are looking for a nice ride for one or more days while I am on the road, you will find me on the road according to the following schedule:

  Any and all support is greatly appreciated - I am looking forward to seeing you on or alongside the roads and at the finish line

I will keep posting progress towards the start of the event and daily during the ride on the FaceBook page at this link 

Raising Funds for MS

 

thanks for your support - John 

 

The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.

I am part of Do it yourself MS Fundraising because I believe in a future without multiple sclerosis and with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
