Why I’m cycling to end MS
On July 10 I'll be strapping on my helmet, cycling from Leduc to Camrose and helping change the future of MS.
Multiple sclerosis has a ripple effect that impacts not only the lives of those diagnosed by the disease, but also their family and community. That’s why I am asking for you to support my fundraising.
My son’s wife was diagnosed with MS when she was in her mid-twenties. Her diagnosis turned her world upside down, sacrificing a career she worked so hard for and forcing her to change her dreams and goals in ways she never imagined. I have seen first hand how much courage, strength and determination it takes to live with the many obstacles and unpredictability that impact people living with MS.
Sometimes my heart aches, when I think of the struggles that people dealing with MS need to face. When I am with Amanda and Morgan(my daughter-in-law and son), I see the depth of their commitment and courage that makes them ‘Strong Enough to Live It.’ This is the slogan Amanda chose to inspire her on a daily basis. I am riding so that she stays ‘Strong Enough to Live It’ and hope that it helps find the cure I wish for Amanda and every person and family affected by MS.
Funds raised at MS Bike continue to support leading-edge research and support programs that improve the quality of life for those affected by MS. When you donate to my fundraising you’ll help continue this incredible work.
With every pedal stroke and donation we’ll further the fight against MS.
Thank you for your support.
