Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body.
Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million individuals worldwide. Find out more about multiple sclerosis at nationalMSsociety.org
On October 20 through October 21, 2018, team BMA West will ride 100 miles from Irvine to San Diego in an effort to raise funds to continue the fight against MS! Along with over three thousand riders, the goal of this event is to raise awareness about life with MS and to raise funds to continue research and development of new treatments. Last year, the MS 150 Bay to Bay ride raised close to, if not more than, $2 million dollars! The goal is to reach $3 million in 2018! We encourage our friends and family to participate! You can volunteer to help during the weekend ride or grab a bike and start pedaling! These rides occur across the country over the course of the year and is a fun an rewarding way to give back to the community! Check out my link below! A donation would be greatly appreciated!
