The Beach Party
The Beach Party team was created over a decade ago in honor of Beach Luke who has had MS since 1993. We were riding in a Bike MS event and discussed team names during our 75 mile ride in the Illinois “Tour De Farms”. John, the team captain, Nicki, John’s daughter, and Gretchen, Beach’s cousin have all experienced the attitude that Beach carries in spite of being confined to a wheelchair. We wanted the team to express the celebration of life she possesses as she lives life in a wheelchair.
MS is a debilitating disease that takes body functions away and the MS patient continues to debilitate over the years. There are some drugs that help MS patients cope by slowing the debilitation and reducing the “attacks” that occur – mostly the relapse remitting type of MS. Beach has chronic progressive MS, there are not any drugs to stop the debilitation of this type. When you see TV commercials and celebrities talking about MS, walking around and dealing with life, they are not chronic progressive.
The Beach Party rides to raise money for the research into chronic progressive. To find a cure for a disease that still baffles the medical profession even in this 21st century. We have ridden in 7 different events over the last 20 years in 4 different states. There are Beach Party teams in Illinois, New England and California.
Please consider helping us contribute to continued research by donating to this ride. This year we are riding from Los Angeles to San Diego – 100 miles – with 2,500 of our closest friends. By clicking on a team members name you can donate to them specifically and help them compete with others in our fundraising campaign. Every little bit helps, no amount is too small. We appreciate and any all help you can provide.
