This will be my 26th year participating in the MS Bike Tour
And what a tour it will be! With COVID-19 still lingering, it has affected so much of how the world is today.
It has changed the way so many events are taking place this year, The 2020 MS Bike Tour is no different. It has gone virtual.
So on July 25th & 26th all across Canada, people will be riding a route of their choosing, a distance of their choice, all for the same cause - MS!
So, to continue with my participation, I will ride alongside my wife, Wanda! She is the reason I ride, my reason for fundraising, for she is one of those who lives with this disease called MS.
I hope someday with the continued research - to eventually have a cure to END-MS!
Your ongoing support will help all of this happen.
My wife's quote:
"I bike for MS for all of those who have MS - myself included! I believe with all of us riding for the cause, someday there will be an answer for this disease, and a cure found."
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.
