This will be my 27th year of riding in the MS BIKE TOUR.
And what a year this will be!
COVID-19 has changed the world, it has also changed this years MS Bike Tour.
This year the events across Canada will become VIRTUAL, taking place on July 25th & 26th.
The one good thing about this event each participant can ride where ever they are, what ever route they choose, all we have to do is ride on the weekend of July 25th & 26th.
While cycling is not new to me, I'm fine riding long distances by myself. It is one of the things I do for myself, I call it Bike Therapy!
So once again, I RIDE!!
And the fundraising continues, with your help.
Believe me I understand if you cannot make a donation this year, COVID-19 has changed peoples lives and priorities.
I love this event, I support the cause, I BELIEVE that someday we will find a cure for this disease we call MS.
Thank you.......YOU, are my fabulous support system and I could not do this without YOU!
Stay Healthy, Stay Strong, we will get through this.
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.
