As many of you know, my sister Anne and I have participated in an annual event to help raise money to fight the devastating effects of Multiple Sclerosis.
After a shortened mileage last year, we return to the full 50-mile journey. This year's event will be my ninth and Anne's seventh and our resolve remains unwavering. MS is not taking a rest this year so neither are we. We will continue our fight, determined as always to reach that day when MS is but a memory.
Our 3-day journey begins in Hyannis on Saturday, September 9th and takes us again through the bike paths and streets of Cape towns such as Brewster and Orleans. We look forward to another challenge, alongside the many wonderful people we meet along the way as well as the tireless volunteers who cheer us on.
Multiple Sclerosis is a frightening disease that affects the central nervous system. The symptoms may be mild (such as numbness in the limbs) or severe enough to cause blindness or paralysis. The severity and specifics of the symptoms of MS can't yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.
