Bike MS 2016: Join the Fight

Tri RideHelp fight for a world free of Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

I’ve signed up for the Bike MS: Toyota Best Dam Bike Tour with the goal of working toward a world free of MS. Please support me as I prepare for this worthwhile endeavor.

 

I’ve seen firsthand how MS affects the families of my students and friends. The amount of strength and perserverence of those affected by MS is incredibly inspiring. I would like to add my own contribution to this strength and work to find a cure.

I’ll go the distance for MS; I will be training and preparing for a 150 mile bike ride, as well as fundraising to reach my goal. Thousands of cyclists all over the country will be joining me.

 

Please support my efforts by making a donation.

With your support, I hope to exceed my fundraising goal. The money raised will help fund MS research, as well as provide programs and services that ensure people affected by MS can live life to its fullest.

MS has been coined, “the silent disease,” but with your help,  we can help to make some noise and spread the word.

Please support me and help put an end to MS.
