Keystone Country MS 150 Bike Ride

Last year was the first year that our team, Maggie’s Marauders, rode together in the Keystone Country MS 150 and we had such a good time that we are going to do it again. As a team, we were able to raise close to $30,000 for the National MS society. The National MS society has an excellent record of having 92% of all moneys donated go to directly help folks with MS both with services and research.

Here is a Youtube that our team captain put together of last years ride:

Last year was a very difficult ride for me probably because of the heat but I did make it. This year, I am praying for a better ride and because of a switch in my medication, I think I will have the strength and endurance to once again finish, with God’s help. This years ride is on July 25th and 26th so there is a chance I will be facing the heat again. This will be my 11th MS 150 and I hope to have many more.

Each year, we are finding more and more out about auto immune diseases. I am confident that in my life time, they will have a cure for MS. This won’t happen on its own without financial support. Won’t you sponsor me today? Last year, I missed the individual top ten fund raiser by about $200 so this year I want to be in that list. What a message I would send if I became the top fund raiser. To reach that goal, I will need a lot more support.

The MS society has a secure web system for making donations on line. You can find that by going here:

Also, please feel free to forward this e-mail to others! There are lots of family and friends that I don’t have e-mail for. Help make me and my team the top fund raiser this year for the Keystone Country Ride!
