Bike MS

On October 8th I will participate in a Bike MS event- a fundraising ride that is changing the lives of people affected by MS and helping fuel progress toward a world free of MS. I am riding for my incredible mother who was diagnosed with MS several years ago. There is currently no cure for MS, but with your support we could make it one step closer to helping the millions of individuals that suffer from this debilitating disease.


Please do not feel obligated to donate, but I would greatly appreciate your support if you are willing to contribute to this incredible cause. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well as programs and services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives. Our goal is simple: a world free of MS. Even the smallest donations bring us one step closer to meeting our goal.


Please follow the link below if you are interesting in supporting the National MS Society.


Thank you!
