Multiple Sclerosis – Bike MS 2012

Click on this link and help me help others

This year I decided to take on this cause. I am riding 175 miles. 100 miles on day one and 75 on day two. This great event takes place exactly one week after my attempt – I mean – my completion of my first 30 hr/100 mile run – The Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Race. Which just so happens to be exactly one week after my second triathlon – Lake Metroparks, Lighthouse Tri. The end of July, beginning of August is going to test my mental and physical abilities, but nothing compared to what those affected with this disease go through every day. Please donate what you can. Any little bit helps. Thank you.

Why We Fight MS

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable disease affecting more than 20,000 people living in Ohio. Currently there is no cure for MS. Advances in treating and understanding MS are made every year, and progress in research to find a cure is very encouraging.

Why I Ride

I am riding on behalf of my cousin Karen. I’ve registered for the Bike MS because I want to do something for the people who have been diagnosed – and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease. I ride for those cant.

Why You Should Sponsor Me and Join the Movement

MS stops people from moving, I am riding to help raise critical funds that support cutting edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education and provide programs and services to help people with MS move their lives forward. Sponsor my ride and help to create a world free of MS.

  1. My mother and brother are both afflicted with MS, so THANKS! I just got myself a new bike after 20 years of not riding. I use to be a serious cycler I am hoping to amp it up and join the ride next year. Living on the prairies, the ride is flat…flat and just a little bit flatter. I am thankful because I will need flat 🙂

    • My cousin was the only person I knew with MS. I was surprised to learn how many people this really does affect and am honored to be riding on her behalf raising money to help her and others in her position out. Have fun getting back into it it! My usual routes are anything but flat!

  2. My sister has suffered from MS for roughly 20 years. She is my hero. She never asks for a thing, if fact, she always is asking what she can do for others. She is tireless and lives a more active life than many people I know that are half her age. Knowing my sister is a constant reminder to me never to complain.

    • Until I rode in BikeMS, I didn’t realize how many lives were affected by it. I will be making this an annual fundraiser with the expectation of raising more money then the year’s prior. Awesome for your sister to maintain such a positive/active lifestyle! My cousin is much the same way.
