3 Days . 50 Miles . Closer to a Cure!!!!

From my brother Paul Keohane:

Hi, everyone -

As you know, for the past 4 years, I have participated in a very special event in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Each year, myself and hundreds of other dedicated individuals, lace up our sneakers and take to the streets and bike paths of Cape Cod, hoping to make a difference in the lives of those with MS. Each year, we proudly take on our 50 mile, 3-Day challenge.

Rejoining me this year is my inspirational sister Anne. She is currently oiling and tuning up her hand-pedaled sports bike, ready to take her battle with MS to the Cape. Entering her 3rd year, she will continue to be a source of inspiration to us walkers as well to those who share her physical challenges.

Also returning to our Wheels and Heels Against MS team is my brother-in-law Gene, who, along with the rest of his Harley crewmates, will patrol the routes, making sure we stay safe and motivated.

This year's challenge walk starts on Friday, September 7th and we can't wait to get started!! But before we hit the streets, we turn to you once again and ask for your generosity. Our team goal for this year is $11,000 and, with your help, we know we can make it. The proceeds we raise for this event go towards funding vital research and the many wonderful programs that are offered by the National MS Society.

To help us reach our goal, there are several ways you can help:

* Go to our team URL and click on one of our names to sponsor us.

* Mail myself or Anne a check, payable to The National MS Society. Our
addresses are:

Anne Murphy

If you know of others who would like to contribute to this great cause, please pass along my letter to them. Any help we receive from them would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your support and your generous contributions to this cause!!

Love to all,
