2020 MS Gong Ride Virtual

Inspired by Alex Carter (8/5/99 - 8/9/20)

This October, our team is cycling to raise funds to support 25,000 people living in Australia with multiple sclerosis.

The average age of diagnosis is 30 however, children as young as 10 have been diagnosed. There is no cure. And we don’t know what causes it.

MS attacks the central nervous system and interrupts the messages sent from the brain to the body. Symptoms are unpredictable and can come and go as they please.

Can you imagine waking up one day unable to see? Or unable to walk? Or unable to talk?

Or nerve pain causing a burning sensation on your skin, so excruciating, your clothes hurt, the shower hurts, hugs hurt, and you cannot sleep for the pain.

And never knowing when it will attack or how long it will last.

Life is for living, not terrified of what the next day might bring.

And so, we are riding and raising funds to support Multiple Sclerosis Ltd to continue providing services and support to people diagnosed with MS and their families and carers.

Please support our team in this challenge by making a donation through our fundraising page.

Let’s help people with MS live their best life!

Thanks for your support.

Sorry to hear about Alex and his parents, I have some very fond memories of him at school. I sat next to him in Maths and Chemistry and he always helped me when I needed it most, we played games like Dead Space, Fear and a whole slather of other multiplayer games. I wish the best of luck and good health to you and Alex's family. Thank you.
