I Can Make a Difference
Join the Movement!
Having multiple sclerosis means that you may suddenly have blurry vision. Or 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.
Why I Ride
I’ve registered for the Bike MS Ride, Cape Cod Getaway because I want to do something for the people
whose MS has been diagnosed ─ and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means
to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between
the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.
Why You Should Sponsor Me
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Central New England Chapter will use funds collected from the
Cape Cod Getaway to not only support research for a world free of MS, but also to provide programs that address the needs
of people living with MS today. Because we can end this disease by simply riding a bike, because we have chosen to help thousands
of people through a contribution to the Bike MS Ride, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear
the words, “You have MS.”

I’m riding because I can. The
symptoms of MS are so unpredictable that the scary part about hearing the words, “you have MS” can mean so many
different things throughout the life of the disease. I am riding for a cure not only for those who are not able to ride a
bike today, but for those who may not be able to ride in the future… one of them possibly being me. I am truly thankful
that I am able to ride 150 miles today and am thrilled that I have a team of close friends supporting me throughout. Thank
you for your support and hopefully we can work together to help find a cure.
