MS 150 Photos
Monday, April 18, 2005. Well, another great MS150 weekend has come and gone. A bit tired from riding 180 miles, but I'd gladly ride it next weekend again if I had the chance. The weekend has had its critics, myself included. But despite it all, it was simply a fabulous weekend. For the sheer size of the event, the level of organization is amazing. And the ride itself was fantastic. The blossoms were out, the weather was cooperative. Of the last four years doing the MS150, this one turned out to be my favorite yet. Check out some pics from the weekend.
I am calling on you and all of my friends and family to contribute on my behalf to the National MS Society. By making a pledge, you are supporting MS research, programs and education. You are also helping me achieve the required fundraising goal of $300.00!
If you would like to sponsor me, and would like to write a check, please e-mail me (use the navigation bar on the bottom-right) for mailing instructions. You can, however, use the following link to donate online in my name. The link will direct you to the BP MS 150 site, where donating is fast, easy, and secure. At the website you will be able to choose an amount to donate and make the donation immediately. I will be notified via email as soon as you make your pledge.
I appreciate your support of the National MS Society and the BP MS 150 Bike Tour. The funds raised on the BP MS 150 Bike Tour provide equipment, financial assistance, self-help groups, counseling, information and resources, as well as education for people with MS and their families. Your support truly makes a difference in the lives of people with multiple sclerosis.
About Multiple Sclerosis
MS is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. The symptoms include blurred or double vision, numbness or tingling in the limbs and can become as severe as paralysis and total loss of vision. Diagnosis usually occurs between the ages of 20 and 50, but the unpredictable physical and emotional effects can be life-long. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.
