The year is 2020 and COVID-19 has changed the World!
The 2020 MS Bike Tour has had to go VIRTUAL.
Just like so many other events around the world.
So the 2020 MS Bike Tour will be taking place across Canada on July 25th & 26th.
Participants will be riding the route they choose, in whatever location they are. But the common goal is the same, to raise funds for MS.
I will be riding alongside my parents! This is to support my Mother, who was diagnosed with MS 33 yrs ago, and the many others who live with this disease.
I ask for your support to help raise funds to aid the ongoing reseach in the hopes that someday soon they can END-MS!
Can you imagine...
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It's estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
...a future without MS
I've registered for the MS Bike Tour to fulfill a personal challenge, and to help the MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Bike Tour has been a critical part of the MS Society's fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Bike Tour because I believe in a future without multiple sclerosis – and with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
