This picture shows my brother Tom, (pictured in the center) who is a top fundraiser for the MS 150 Best Damn Bike Ride. On his left is his son and to the right is a long term friend. I was to the left of his son but did not make the cut. Maybe this year!
My involvement with MS, is personal and important to me. My uncle died from MS years ago and my sister-n-law Eddy(Edwardine), currently has MS. Eddy and her immediate family has been riding in this bike ride for 13 years straight. Around this time last year she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was not able to participate. I asked if I could ride in the MS 150 Best Dam Bike Ride in her honor.
I found the experience to be incredible. What an amazing organization and group of people! I am excited to be entering the ride for my second year which is August 2nd & 3rd , 2014.
Wow that is only one week away!!
To those that are interested in helping, I would like to share some opportunities available to make a difference.
Mile by mile and dollar by dollar, Bike MS: TOYOTA Best Dam Bike Ride is changing lives and has changed mine. That’s why I registered and why I’m asking you to consider doing one of three things:
- Donate to my fundraising efforts. Link to my home page is http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR/Bike/WIGBikeEvents?px=12467815&pg=personal&fr_id=22517
- Join me / my team
- Forward this email to others who might be interested in helping raise money and create MS awareness
Ending multiple sclerosis means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Your donation will support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Every dollar helps. Every person makes a difference.
There are many opportunities to help people with needs and I am sure you all do your part and more. If you already participate in one way or another a huge THANK YOU! If not, please consider this opportunity to make a difference!
