Our goal—a world free of MS.
You may not be aware but our family has an insanely high number of people who are afflicted with this terrible disease. We ride for those who cannot. We have two siblings who have been diagnosed with MS. Our sister was diagnosed at the tender age of 21. She has been fighting it, and doing well, but every day is a new day to beat or be beaten. Just a couple of years ago our brother was also diagnosed at the age of 40. Two out of two aunts on our mom's side of the family are very affected by the disease. Two out of three of our cousins (in a single family) were impacted, and one of those lost her battle with MS. We continue to watch our family fight like crazy to maintain as "normal" a life as possible, but we know we have the technology to beat this disease. We just have to figure out how.
We'd love your support as we prepare for this incredible experience. If you want to do more than make a donation, join our team!
We are prepared to go the distance for MS. It will take advance training, preparation and ongoing commitment from hundreds of other people and thousands of cyclists all over the country. What will really put power in our pedals is your support and our commitment to those impacted by this disease. Every mile we ride brings us closer to our goal—a world free of MS.
Please support our team today.
We've set an ambitious goal because we know that with support from people like you we can get there. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives.

When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by multiple sclerosis. Symptoms of MS 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 leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
