Why I'm riding
For the last five years, I've ridden in the MS ride with team Rear Guard, to help end MS. And I'm riding again this year. Every day 3 more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory, mood and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure. But research and support are uncovering strategies that help to get us closer. In the meantime, MS doesn't discriminate--it can hit anyone. Especially Canadians, where the incidence is highest, worldwide.
Your support means families who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.
Your dollars at work
When you pledge me in the MS Bike, your funds are invested into groundbreaking MS research and services for the 100,000 Canadians living with MS.
Services and programs your fundraising supports:
- Financial assistance for special equipment and home care
- Supportive counselling for all those affected by MS
- Self-help groups and recreational programs for people with MS
- Government advocacy for people living with MS
Thank you in advance for your pledge to create a more hopeful future for those affected by MS.
