In June I will be riding in my 3rd year for the MS150 and joining over 3,000 other riders in fighting to create a world free of multiple sclerosis! We will be riding from the Denver area to Ft. Collins and back, which totals 150+ miles. Proceeds from this event are used to provide programs and services to over 9,500 Coloradoans living with MS, as well as fund critical research projects in hope of finding a cure.
Why I Ride: For My Mother-in-Law, Ellie
I’ve registered for the Colorado Bike MS ride to fulfill a personal challenge, and also help the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families lead powerful lives. I believe in the work they do and want to be part of it.
Multiple Sclerosis affects people in the prime of their lives, between the ages of 20 and 50. Every hour someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. More than 2.5 million people worldwide live with this unpredictable disease. Having multiple sclerosis means that you may suddenly have blurry vision, that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason, or that you may not always be able to walk, let alone ride a bike. The symptoms of MS are different for everyone – the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.
I will ride 150 miles in just two days to MAKE MY MARK and do my part to make a difference in the lives of those living with MS.
Let’s Move Forward Together
Currently there is no cure for MS. The money that is raised at this event and others like it will be used to find the cause, treatment, and ultimately the cure of multiple sclerosis. The money is also used to provide education, information, direct financial aid, and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS. By sponsoring me you too will MAKE YOUR MARK in this pursuit.
