Why I Ride
I am very excited to be joining Team R&B for the Cape Code Getaway this year. As some of you may know, cycling is more than just a hobby for me. It’s my way of connecting (and staying connected) with strangers and friends through common interests both on and off the bike. Something I’ve been trying to get better at is giving back to the community and the sport that I love so dearly. I can think of no better way than to support the efforts of Bike MS.
Multiple sclerosis affects millions of people, including our loved ones, families, friends and co-workers. That’s why I’ve registered for Bike MS. Bike MS is a ride (not a race) that brings us together to make a difference and each mile we ride brings us closer to a world free of MS.
Why We Ride
I am asking you to support me in Bike MS because this cause is meaningful to me. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Your gift helps support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will hear the words “You have MS” ever again. Every dollar counts!
You can find my fundraising page here!
As a special thank you, I would like to offer a little something extra for all those who help support my fundraising efforts. Every person who donates will be entered into a raffle for a home cooked meal by yours truly for you and 3 friends (this only applies to those in Boston, sorry!). The winner can choose anything in my Home Cooking section and I will make it happen. And for those who are not local, the winner can opt for a $25 Amazon gift card! As a added incentive, if you want to double your chances of winning, you can help support my other fundraising effort for the J&J Triathlon Team. Each donation will count as a separate entry so it is a win-win-win situation!
Thanks again for reading!
