Wisconsin, Pewaukee - Bike MS 2014: TOYOTA Best Dam Bike Ride
I'm riding the 31st Bike MS!
Why I Decided to Ride Again
I rode in my very 1st (and hottest on record) Best Dam Bike Ride in 2012 because I want to challenge myself further in the movement to end MS (I was diagnosed in 1999) Now I'm hooked! - and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for MS, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals like myself, face a lifetime filled with unpredictability. As a 5 year participant in Challenge Walk MS I've decided to "change gears." I remain grateful every day that my MS hasn't affected my legs. It has taken it's toll in other areas and I want to continue to move for my friends in the MS Community who can no longer do so.
Why You Should Join the Movement by Sponsoring Me
The National MS Society-Wisconsin Chapter uses funds collected from the Bike MS: Best Dam Bike Ride to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs and services which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can fight this disease by simply riding, because we have chosen to help thousands of people through a contribution to the Bike MS: Best Dam Bike Ride, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
