Bike MS: New Mexico Pedal los Pueblos 2013
Los Monos Ayudantes!
Help Us To Cure MS!
Worldwide, 2.5 million people are living with MS, and 200 new patients are diagnosed in the U.S. each week. Recently, researchers have made incredible advances, but the world can still only offer disease management drugs and therapies. A true cure continues to prove elusive.
Multiple Sclerosis (Many Scars) is a chronic autoimmune disease affecting the central nervous system. Patients may suffer blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, blindness and more. Depending on a variety of conditions, problems may be permanent or come and go. For more information, NMSS has provided a pamphlet: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/download.aspx?id=22
We've formed this team to raise awareness of and funding for NMSS. In addition to supporting research projects around the globe, they provide much needed education, programs and services to everyone who is affected by MS: patients, their friends and families, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.
Like the capuchin?s we represent, we?re not the biggest players in this match. We?re not doctors or researchers or pharmaceutical representatives. We don?t have big sponsors or high powered donors. This is a team of friends and family members that ride for fun, and getting to work toward this cause in the meantime is rewarding. Our donations are raised at a grass roots level from people we know that also want to be involved and support this cause.
We welcome cyclists of any level to join our team and accept donations of any amount in support. All money donated is tax deductable and goes directly to the NMSS for research and outreach.
