May Charity of the Month – Lauren Lonsberry’s MS Bike Ride

Lauren is one of our barre instructors and we want to support her MS Bike ride!  Let’s help Lauren end MS!!!

LET’S GO ROUND FIVE…

This will be my fifth time riding in the MS Bike Tour from Leduc to Camrose for a total of 180KM over two days (that is 112.50miles for my American beauties).

After taking part in this life changing event the last few years, my continued registrations continues to be a no brainer. My eyes remain open to the every day struggles that this illness has the potential of putting people through with little to no warning.

Every day 3 more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. This disease can effect the nervous system, vision and hearing, arms and legs, speaking, swallowing, breathing, skeletal structure, immune system, bladder and bowel function, reproductive system, and ciculatory system. These symptoms are typically not minor; rather they are life changing, and to date we are unaware of what causes MS and as of now there is no cure.

I believe in a future without MS, and I strive to raise funds to help put toward research projects to help achieve this future sooner than later.

Your support means families who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.

Where your money goes….?

Your funds are invested into groundbreaking MS research and services for the 100,000 Canadians living with MS.

Services and programs your fundraising supports:

  • Financial assistance for special equipment and home care
  • Supportive counselling for all those affected by MS
  • Self-help groups and recreational programs for people with MS
  • Government advocacy for people living with MS

Thank you in advance for your pledge to create a more hopeful future for those affected by MS.
