Why I Chose to Participate in Bike MS:

Every hour of every day, someone is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. That's why I've registered for my 15th Bike MS. Bike MS is a ride (not a race) that connects friends, families and co-workers. Each mile we ride brings us closer to a world free of MS.

As many of you know, I have been participating in this event since 2001.  This year on June 14 & 15, I am once again riding with the Blue Ridge Chapter in Charlottesville, VA.  Through the generousity of yourself and many others, I raised more than $3,000.00 for the 2013 Ride MS.  I have had additional inspiration to participate in this event ever since I learned almost six years ago that my son's mother-in-law has been suffering with MS for  more than 20 years. In addition, one of his sisters-in-law has been diagnosed with this dreaded disease.

I am asking you to support me in Bike MS because this is a cause that is meaningful to me. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and it stops people from moving. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.

Please support me!

Your gift helps provide local programs and services for people affected by MS, and funds cutting-edge research, putting  us closer to realizing our promise to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE lost function and END MS forever. Ending MS means no one will hear the words, "You have MS" ever again. Every dollar counts!
