My coworker Chris has been biking the MS 150 for years now. I received an email the other day that he is again doing the ride and seeking donations. If you are looking to give to the National MS Society I recommend you donate through Chris. I am thankful to Chris and the other bikers for their efforts. Safe travels.
You can click here to quickly contribute or here is an excerpt from the email he sent me:
As a past donor I want to thank you for your support in prior years and ask for your support again this year. I had the opportunity to hear a wonderful speaker with MS address the Ride Marshals group that I volunteer with and your contributions really do make a difference in the lives of those stricken with this debiliting disease. – Chris
Every hour, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system.
I registered for the 2013 BP MS 150 because I want to do something about MS now. I’m asking you to support my efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
