This summer I am cycling roads and trails in the Maritimes once again to change the future of MS.
Over 90,000 Canadians live with MS and the need for information, resources and support programs for them is as urgent and critical as ever. That’s why I am asking for your support in my fundraising.
While Canada has one of the highest rates of MS globally, we are also home to some of the worlds top MS researchers, whose work is at risk of not continuing due to the economic crisis. My fundraising for MS Bike will help support their groundbreaking work into treatments and ultimately a cure.
Each day roughly 11 people are diagnosed with MS in Canada. As a tribute to them, and in memory of my Mom who lived courageously with MS for many years, I plan to ride in 11 different sites across the Maritimes this Spring and Summer (...credit to super MS fundraiser Scott Davis for the 11 for 11 idea), ending with a final ride during the Virtual MS Bike on Saturday, September 18th. Keep an eye out on my Facebook page for pictures and videos of my adventures.
I will also be logging my kilometers with riders all across our country for the "90,000 kms for 90,000 Candians Challenge".
Since the late 1990's, together we've raised over $85,000 in support of this worthwhile cause!
With every kilometre I cycle and every dollar you give, we will move that much closer to a world free of MS.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
