Thank you for supporting our Team in the MS Sydney to the Gong Ride.
The idea to ride to Melbourne came to me on the day of the 2015 Sydney 2 Gong ride. It was only a few months before this that my wife was diagnosed with relapsing and remitting MS, with our wedding only months away this news rocked our world!
I had planned on doing this ride by myself but as I told my friends and family of my plans, they all jumped at the idea of helping raise awareness for MS. A small issue arose! We didn't own bikes, gear or have any idea about road cycling! This motivated us to get on the bike and begin training as we had a huge amount of work and planning to do in preparation.
Our challenge doesn't compare to a life with MS but by making the 1000Km journey from Sydney to Melbourne we aim to increase awareness and with your generous sponsorship, the funds raised will continue to provide vital support services to people living with multiple sclerosis. Services such as MS Peer Support, connecting people who are newly diagnosed with those who have lived with multiple sclerosis for a number of years, or the MS Employment Support program keeping Aussies living with multiple sclerosis in the work force.
Thank you again for your support! We will be thinking of all the well wishes and we enourage everybody to get involved, we and people with MS can never have enough support!
