On June 22 and 23 I will be riding almost 200km to fundraise for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure. This is a cause near to my heart and this will be my 5th time participating in the event.
Several of my patients at work and two personal friends are living with MS and I see the struggles they face. Somehow, they continue to maintain a positive outlook and maintain the belief that we will find a cure for MS. Every year I am so impressed with the many individuals that ride and are diagnosed with MS. I am riding to support them and I am riding for friends who can't ride anymore.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Bike, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
