This summer I’m going to be attempting a challenging bike ride, 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 families and communities. That’s why I am asking for you to support my fundraising, which funds research and programs that improve the quality of life for those affected by MS.
I’m riding in memory of my godfather, Byron McBain, a wonderful, caring and generous man who was diagnosed with MS at age 40, and dealt with the disease for 18 years before his death at age 58. I think of him often, and certainly will throughout this year’s ride.
As this year’s ride is not possible as a group due to COVID-19, I have set out my own personal challenge for the solo event: the Vancouver Triple Crown. It consists of riding up (and back down) the three big local mountains here on the North Shore—all on the same day. 3,500 meters of vertical in a distance of just over 150 km. I’ve wanted to attempt it for quite a while, but have honestly been far too scared to. But this seems a better reason than any to take on something so foolish :)
With every pedal stroke and donation we’ll further the fight against MS.
