A recent research study shows that one out of every two local residents knows someone living with multiple sclerosis. MS is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. People with MS are usually diagnosed between the ages of 20-50 and face unpredictable symptoms that can include numbness, blurred vision, paralysis and blindness.
I’m asking you to join me in creating a world free MS. This year, I’m participating in Bike MS: Tour de Farms Greater Illinois Chapter set for June 25-26, 2013.
The ride is a 2 day event, covering 200 miles. My goal is 50 miles each day, however I am training to go longer, maybe even the century (100 miles/day) or double metric century(120 miles/day).
I have set a personal financial goal of raising $300 and I’m asking you to please make a contribution. Visit my personal page by clicking the link below to give securely online:
The National MS Society is the leading provider of programs and services for thousands of people in our community living with MS and their families. The Society also invests more money in MS research than any other volunteer-driven health organization in the world.
Please join me! Please consider what you can do to help people living with MS right now and to protect those who may be diagnosed in the future. Thank you for your generosity.
