Why I’m cycling to end MS
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.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
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. Like many in Winnipeg, I know a number of families living with loved ones who have MS, and some people that have been diagnosed. When I lived in Carberry in the '80s, it had the sad distinction of having the highest incidence per thousand population in the world. And we still don't even know what causes it.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
