Why I’m cycling to end MS
As many of you know, my mother lived many years with progressive MS and it ultimately led to her premature death last year. In spite of her unending positivity and que sera sera attitude, she was nonetheless robbed of the full life she deserved and will be unable to see her grandchildren grow up.
Once again this year I will be riding with Team Innocente from Grand Bend to London and back (approx 170km) to raise awareness and money for the MS Society. I ride for her. I ride for my cousin. I ride for countless others affected by this disease.
Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Bike, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
