businesses, friends and family to help support this great cause.
Leading up to the event the members trained weekly for the 25 mile ride from Mays Landing to Ocean City and attended a rider skills course/bicycle inspection so they were prepared for the ride.
the proceeds from this event will help fund critical research needed to
end MS and to support the vital services this organization provides.
The Society’s Greater Delaware Valley Chapter provides the resources
that 14,000 local people living with MS need to remain independent,
including employment counseling, health insurance advocacy, physical
therapy and emergency financial assistance.
The Society also invests more money in MS research than any other volunteer-driven health organization in the world.The Bike MS: City to Shore Ride 2013 turned out to be a great success. All of the members who participated in the ride finished with no injuries, the event helped increase local awareness about multiple sclerosis and every dollar raised helps make a real difference in the lives of the 14,000 local people living with multiple sclerosis.
