2020 MS Gong Ride Virtual

Help support the BEST team, with only the coolest people.

Welcome to the Greatest Team, the Biggest Team in Gong History in 2019 and the number 1 team in the first annual VIRTUAL MS Gong Ride.

We are riding to raise funds for the 25,000 people living with MS - like me!

Can you imagine waking up one day unable to see? Or unable to walk? Or unable to talk? Or living in constant nerve pain? 

I have been fighting MS since I was 16 years old. Every day, I deal with the terrible symptoms of MS. I can’t sleep more than 2 hours a night due to the chronic pain and most days, it feels like my skin is burning all over my entire body. There have been so many other excruciating symptoms over the years including at one point, and you never know when they will hit or how long they will last. 

I woke up and couldn’t feel my body from the waist down. It lasted for 9 weeks! 

However whilst I CAN walk and I CAN ride a bike I will take on this challenge to raise money for so many others with MS. 

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.
