"Hi, I'm Sara...I Can Make a Difference!"

I've registered for the Bike MS: Cape Cod Getaway because I want to do something for the people whose MS has been diagnosed -- and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from having to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.

Why You Should Sponsor Me:
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter will use funds collected from the Cape Cod Getaway to not only support research for a world free of MS, but also to provide programs that address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can end this disease by simply riding a bike, because we have chosen to help thousands of people through a contribution to the Bike MS Ride, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."

Having multiple sclerosis means that you may suddenly have blurry vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Or that you may not always be able to walk, let alone ride a bike. The symptoms of MS are different for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.

Why I Ride:
The Bike MS: Cape Cod Getaway 2014, presented by EMD Serono and Pfizer, is the largest MS ride in New England. Beginning on the morning of Saturday June 28, over 2000 riders will pedal from UMass Boston through the coastal towns of Massachusetts' South Shore to the beginning of Cape Cod. The end of day one is at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Bourne where the riders are welcomed with music, great food and maybe even a beer or two.
Early Sunday morning, the riders cross the Bourne bridge and ride through picturesque Cape Cod as they make their way to Provincetown. After crossing the finish line, riders have a chance to eat, socialize and clean up before boarding the party boat back to Quincy.
