MS Bike Tour
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed. The MS Bike Tour has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it fund innovative programs and services and support ground breaking research dedicated to finding a cure.
