Well, It's that time of year again for me and those like me. The Rona MS bike Tour is coming soon--Sept 9th--in the Toronto area--and once again I look forward to participating in the 55km event.
Last years results were astounding, and I would expect nothing but an improvement this time around.
In case you don't know about me, I was diagnosed with MS in late 2000, and have had to make some minor living adjustments, although nothing as life-shattering as many of the other's I come into contact with in the clinic I participate in. I am truly a luckier individual than most with my affliction.
I am currently involved in a drug study, which hopes to be able to end up aiding those newly diagnosed, as well as those suffering full blown MS.
The country-wide goal this year has increased to 2.2 million dollars, up 100,000 dollars from last year.
My personal goal last year was $1000, and I managed to rack up over $3000 by the time the ride was completed. This year I intend to start with a goal of $3000, and see where my supporters take me!! I look forward to your pledges, your good wishes, prayers, and any and all support you can muster in the next few months preceding the ride.Tax receipts are available for pledges over $15, and on-line pledges trigger automatic receipts.
