Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page! I have been riding in the Fraser Valley MS Bike Tour for the last 11 years. Together with my team, I have ridden well over 1,000 kilometres in this event, and I have raised well over $4,000 in the last 5 years alone. One of my best friends is coping with MS, as well as a young adult family member diagnosed with the disease last recently.
We have created this Fraser Valley Team called Out Spoke'n, very fitting for a group of cyclists trying to help friends and family dealing with MS know that they are NOT alone in their quest to be well. Please help us achieve our goal. Let myself and the Team work to believe that a cure is possible, and help us help others do what they need to do to make this happen.
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. We dream of this.
We are working to raise money for this worthy cause, and also to raise awareness of the plight of people with MS. We ride because they cannot. We think of them all along the journey. We have FUN! This event is one of the most positive things a person can do to support those living with MS, but in the process, we meet other positive, productive, playful people.
You can see from our team pictures... we are ON IT!
Help us, join us, support us. Thank you :)
