I'm taking the Challenge to fight MS!

I am taking part in the MS Gong Ride Virtual, the Ride to Fight MS. 

I start my challenge on 1 October. You will be able to see my progress here on my page and support me along the way! Because we are currently locked in our homes, I have committed to the minimum distance of 82kms because I have no idea if in October we will still be limited to a 5km radius from our home and how much I will be allowed to ride. 

Why am I fundraising?

It’s quite staggering to think that multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition. It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely. People often feel the first symptoms in their late teens or early 20's. Can you imagine being diagnosed when your life is ahead of you, and now you have to deal with a lifelong, degenerative illness? All of a sudden, your world has changed.

I know people with MS who live very full lives, but everything is harder. And still, there is no cure. If we can support the research so that one day, people with MS are no longer limited by this illness, it would be really great. 

Thanks to your generous support, the funds we raise will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to stay connected to others and to the information and services they need to live their best life.

Thank you again for your support!

Hello friends! 
On Sunday I ticked the 82kms I had pledged to ride for this fundraiser, and thanks to your generosity I have also reached the $1,000 goal. 
Now that we are allowed 25kms from home I am hoping I can click in a couple if big rides before the end of the month.
Thanks again!
Sophie
