On April 16th and 17th, I will be joining 13,000 other cyclists riding 180 miles from Houston to Austin to help end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis. By making a pledge on my behalf, you are supporting research and local services to those affected with this unpredictable disease.
MS is a crippling disease that affects the central nervous system. Some symptoms of MS may include loss of balance, impaired vision and hearing, fatigue, muscle weakness and, in some, paralysis. Even simple everyday living skills become increasingly difficult. Everyone diagnosed with MS is affected differently by these symptoms and there is no known cure. But, with your help we can do a lot to help find that cure and to touch the lives of so many that are affected by MS! This year's tour was merely a personal goal of mine, just to see if I could complete the 180 miles, now it is more personal because one of my wifes close friends was diagnosed with MS last month.
My goal is to raise at least $1,500 this year. Please help me reach that goal with your pledge. Any amount you feel comfortable with, even $1.00, will help! And, as always your donation is tax deductible.
