I was privileged to ride again this year in BikeMS Colorado as team leader for The Galloping Geese. We fielded eight riders. Two rode over 150 miles over two days, three of our team rode 125 miles and three took the one day, 30 mile option. Our team has raised over $8,000 this year! The event itself has nearly 3,000 riders with a goal of raising $3.6 million for the MS Society. It is one of Colorado's largest fundraising events.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, blindness and more. MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve.
The MS Society (www.nationalmssociety.org) funds groundbreaking research and life-changing programs for people living with MS. Our (realistic) hope is to find a cure!
