Feb 27th-March 5th 2016, The MS Great 8, This is the Biggie for me.
I have been asked to participate with the MS Great 8 Foundation and will
embark on yet another journey aimed at raising the public awareness of
Multiple Sclerosis in America today as well as to ultimately help find a cure
for Multiple Sclerosis.
The 6th Annual
MS Great 8 Tucson Arizona
Feb 27th – March 5th 2016
Cycling the mountains of Tucson…650-700 Miles
Beginning on February 27th 2016, 20 cyclists and I will start peddling for 6
straight days. This is the country’s most popular training destination for
both professional and amateur cyclist. Along the way, we will be meeting
various members and support facilities of the MS community as we
challenge ourselves with our most aggressive as well as inspiring tour. With
a fundraising goal of $200,000, we will ride the mountains of Arizona.
The MS Great 8 Foundation has raised over $1,500,000 if the fight against
MS in the past 5 Bike Tours. This is a special group of people striving to
make a difference. One mile at a time.
I will be training all summer and fall for this ride and the opportunity to
challenge myself as well as raise funds and awareness in my Dad’s Honor.
The ride has inspired many and I feel privileged to have been asked to
participate this year with this select group of cyclist.
The goals of The MS Great 8 Foundation remain to raise public awareness
about Multiple Sclerosis, raise funds that go directly to various chapters of
the National MS Society and inspire those diagnosed with MS to take
charge of their lives and not let MS control them.
•We want people living with MS to see that they can “do it”
•We want those people who are caring for people with MS to be
reminded why “it’s worth it”
•And we want to let all others understand why it’s so important to
end Multiple Sclerosis today
Together: you, my fellow cyclists and I will make an undeniable impact on
international research to find a cure for MS and on local programs and
services to improve the daily lives of those with MS.
