MS Avengers

2020 MS Gong Ride Virtual

We are taking on the Challenge to fight MS!

You’re most likely here because you or a legend you know has decided to take on the challenge to ride to help those with MS.

 

Today you are going to read thousands of words on your computer screen or phone; some important, others not so much. I would love for you to put spend 2 minutes to read our story and become a part of our amazing journey.

 

Our journey started more than 5 years ago.

 

Steph, a beloved wife, friend, and colleague was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. At the time we couldn’t be the neurologist to help, so we decided to do the next best thing was to raise money to help those living with MS. In our very first year our fundraising goal was $3,000 which we quickly passed and ended up raising $17,000. Fast forward and we have consistently been one of the top fundraising teams for the Sydney to the Gong. In 4 years we have raised an incredible quarter of a million dollars!!!.

 

This crazy year has been tough for so many including those living with MS. The Gong as we know it is a little different; for the first time it is a virtual ride.

 

This isn’t going to stop us. For the third year in a row we are aiming to raise over 100k!

 

We would love for you to be a part of our journey, and appreciate all the support we have had over the years.

 

Mike
