Bike MS: Bay to Bay 2018

Mitsubishi Motors

STAND, HOPE, PURPOSE
At this moment we have been given great fortune. We are given a deep understanding of the world coupled by the power to do so much. One of the best ways we can celebrate and honor this gift is in preservation of it's beauty and wonder, helping to advance that which is good and to lift ourselves while at the same time lift those around us.

The announcement of a virtuous idea does not exhaust responsibility. Rather this should be a catalyst to spark hope and action resulting in genuine progress toward reality. We are not discussing an absolute, infinite concept. Not of a dramatic change in your lives or in your beliefs. It does require concrete motion and practical application.

Hope, more than a desire for strategic position or material gain. Hope based in gratitude. Hope from a basic natural instinct to do what is right. Hope as an inspiration. Action does not have to mean “anything goes”. It is a day to day conviction.

We all prefer to live together in peace. We believe that Well-Being, Happiness and Compassion are essential aspects to life. That Change, Growth, and Progress are natural laws of living. Given a choice most people want the best from life for everyone and in the right way. That one of our greatest desires is to improve the quality of life while ensuring all live in freedom with equality and dignity.

We reach out our hand to you and those around you. We always stride to understand, to be open and be ready to listen. We always question and debate, never fearing criticism or isolation. We always speak from the heart. We always drive to use our talents.

We are celebrating our 19th year as a Team in the Bike MS B2B Event. We are blessed with a great group of people. This has become an extended family identified by social and ethical balances. Each bring a wider view to the group. Each give their time and talent to the common cause. Each contributes a passion to perform.

It’s important to note that we have a clear understanding of the “Mission” and the NMSS, but also an intense sense of performance. We became part of Bike MS because some of us have a direct connection with MS but all feel strongly about what we are doing and are passionate in supporting the MS Society. We have witnessed many advances in MS Research, treatment and assistance to families affected by this disease. We have learned and tried to be strong advocates for the MS community. And we have engaged others to join the MS Movement.

We are grateful to be in collaboration with the MS Society. If history has proved anything it is that working together in a proactive way makes a significant difference and brings about rapid change

The National MS Society is the largest privately funded nonprofit organization devoted to finding a cure and assisting people with MS and their families. The MS Society funds millions for programs for direct assistance each year and also invests millions to support cutting edge research projects around the world. Over 74% of the funds raised for their efforts come from grassroots events like Bike MS.

What does all of this mean to you? An opportunity to create a constructive society where all can participate in the act of creating lasting worth. To live from the heart and soul, mold the present and shape the future. To fuel others to move closer together and to ignite engagement.

Different people will see the same subject in a different light. Many people would believe that the roadmap to the future is best left in the hands of others. Many believe that meaningful endeavors are unreal. That change is not practical, is a chance or too high of risk. Many do not understand or claim that they don’t that success and happiness are more than a statistic, position, conquest or power. These cannot be the views of a caring, understanding, benevolent and enlighten society.

Everyone should recognize that we are all part of each other. We are by nature a diverse, spirited and free people. People that value meaning, who are ready to listen, are open minded and of the desire to understand, learn and grow.

It may always seem simple, not always easy. But humanities reason and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable. The engine is to be empowered and fulfilled. The motivation is to achieve, a pride in the task and the peaceful joy of discovery while pushing oneself.

This is not a finish, but it is a start. It starts right now. Please join the movement to make the world free of MS. Join our team or make a donation. Should we let this dream slip away we will never truly understand its promise of peace.
