Bike MS Cox Atlanta Ride 2013
I Can Make a Difference
Why I’m Moving Forward
As most of you know, since being diagnosed with MS I have participated in the Atlanta MS Walks and have consistently been in the Top 5 fundraisers for the State. Last year I switched gears and joined the MS Bike 150 Sheppard Team It was such an incredible exsperience that I am hooked along with my many new friends.
As the top fund raiser for the Sheppard Team last year and with your support, I hope to repeat that this year. Like the Sheppard Center, this is a large group of dedicated men and women not afflicted by MS but are willing to raise money to end this disease.
I have many friends that have benefitted from the Sheppard Center in getting them back into the work force and allow them to live independantly. The Sheppard center has a great MS facility for rehab, research and therapy.
Although I can not physically do the ride currently, with your donations maybe soon I will be able to ride again
Living with MS means living with uncertainty. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. There is no cure, and MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.5 million worldwide.
When it comes to MS, only two things are certain.
That another American is diagnosed every hour of every day.
And that a whole lot of people are joining the movement toward a world free of MS. Including me.
Why I Ride
I've registered for the Bike MS: Cox Atlanta Ride to fulfill a personal challenge, and also to help the National MS Society’s Georgia Chapter fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families lead powerful lives. I believe in the work they do, and I want to be part of it. Can I count on your help?
Let’s Move Forward Together
Bike MS is a great challenge but also great fun! Funds raised go toward research aimed at treating and eventually curing MS. They also provide education, information, direct financial aid and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS in our community.
I’m helping the National MS Society move forward toward a world without MS. Please join me by making a donation or joining my team.
