My friend Mike Knapp (@mike_knapp on Twitter) is going to be riding in Rona’s MS Bike Tour in Vancouver this year and we’ll be joining his team on this great cause. Please see below for important links and information and if you would like to join in on the fun.
This is his story…
Help us End MS
I’ve been touched by stories about people who struggle to live with MS, a challenging and infuriating disease that hits relatively young adults. This disease has hit my circle of friends twice – and needs to stop there. My own health challenges – a rare adrenal disorder – only increases my motivation to help find a cure.
Once again this year we will be raising money to help meet their medical and financial needs, and to increase research funding to help find better treatment, and a cure. Team Hale & Hearty has been in the top 10 fundraising teams (despite us being as small as 2 members some years) every year we’ve ridden.
The ride is a 60km “Scenic” tour of Vancouver, happening on Sunday August 7th. This is my second year doing this great ride with team Hale & Hearty. Last year, we were very successful in raising funds to help fight MS. With your help, this year will be equally successful.
Please support MS research. I greatly appreciate any support you give! To donate, click here to go to Mike’s fund raising page.
Interested in joining us for the ride?
Team Hale & Hearty would be happy to have you join us. We’re (mostly) casual riders with a range of abilities. We’ll be doing regular rides over the summer to prepare for this (and some other) rides, so there’s lots of time to get used to the saddle.
