We’re off to the Okanagan Valley for the MS Bike Tour on September 18 and 19th to put our legs to good use and ride for Multiple Sclerosis research. We’re a really late entry to this event, having just registered yesterday, but we hope to meet and exceed our fund-raising goal of $1000 in just two short weeks. We’re also looking for other enthusiastic riders to join our team and bring their fund-raising efforts and goals in addition to ours. This will be the fourth time I have done the MS bike tour and it is such a great event and one that contributes nearly 1 million dollars each year to much-needed Multiple Sclerosis research funding.
We also are looking for more people to join the team, so if you wanna join, do a great ride, drink some wine and fund-raise for an awesome cause then join here or email me for more details on car pool and accommodations.
As well, our first fund-raising event is in the works. I’ve got Giancarlo’s to get the Montreal and Quebec GP pro-tour bike races on the tube in HD! We’ll be having a fundraiser with giveaway prizes for at least Sunday’s event so stay tuned to the blog for more info and come out and support the event.
From now until Sept. 17th:
For pledges $50 or more you qualify to receive a free Cima Coppi Wool Cycling Cap!
For pledges of $200 or more, you qualify to receive a free Cima Coppi Merino Wool Jersey!
For pledges of $500 or more, you qualify to receive a free Merino Wool kit: Kit includes 1 Merino Wool Jersey, Merino arm warmers, leg warmers, and a cycling cap.
***Remember that all pledges over $20 receive a tax receipt and are deductible from your income tax. It’s practically free to give!***
Proceeds from MS Society fundraising events provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers as well as fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. We believe we will end multiple sclerosis, and with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
