Why We Ride


"Thank you so much for your help getting funding towards my vehicle hand controls. I love my new found freedom, I forgot how it felt to go places by myself. I feel totally safe now. I appreciate all of your help!"– Lori Blemings, Woodbury New Jersey


Everyone has a different reason for getting involved in Bike MS. For some it’s the challenge. For others it’s the camaraderie. But for many more it’s the opportunity to help people living with MS. Ultimately by riding, you are showing your support for the thousands of people affected by MS, including the 2014 Bike MS Champions (read their stories below). Click on the tabs below to learn more about how your fundraising dollars make an impact and share why you ride.

Even if you may not have a personal connection to MS currently, you are riding for someone by participating in City to Shore. Meet our Champions below and read how your fundraising dollars are making a difference in the lives of people living with MS in our area.

wear it proudly

2013 ribbon.jpg

If you are riding for someone in particular, have them sign their name on the orange ribbon you’ll receive in your rider number packet.

In addition to promoting awareness, the orange ribbon serves as a reminder of why we ride. You can pin it to your jersey or your rider number, or attach it to your bike; either way you are showing your support. Proudly wear this ribbon ride weekend and show your support in creating a world free of MS.

 

Plus share why you ride and learn why other teams and individuals are riding, including this video of 2012 & 2013 top fundraiser Albert DeRitis:

I Ride with MS is a special Society program that celebrates Bike MS cyclists who are also living with multiple sclerosis. If you are an individual living with MS and participating in City to Shore 2014, you have the opportunity to participate in this program. Through a partnership with Genzyme and MS One to One and Primal Wear participants of this program will receive a complimentary "I Ride with MS" jersey.*

*Please note: jerseys will be provided to those who voluntarily indicate interest in participating in the program on their 2014 City to Shore registration or by completing the survey, and will be available for pick-up at the Rider Expo or at the Ocean City Finish Line MS One to One tent.

  

Where your money goes

The National MS Society is making a difference in the lives of those affected by MS and contributes to the significant advances that are being made in both understanding and treating the disease. Your tremendous fundraising efforts allow the society to help people with MS live their best possible lives.

Research

Funds raised by bike MS are helping researchers around the world to determine the cause of MS, develop treatments and ways to prevent MS, restore damage that has been done as a result of the disease, and to eventually find a cure.

Programs

Greater Delaware Valley Chapter offers a full slate of programs aimed at educating people about how to overcome the disease’s physical, social and financial effects, whether you are a person living with MS or a caregiver.

Direct financial assistance

Our chapter is committed to helping people with MS maintain independence through emergency financial assistance, medical equipment and home modifications, respite care, and transportation for medical appointments.

Activism

The National MS Society advocates for federal, state and local government change essential to people with MS.

Get more information on New Jersey and Pennsylvania advocacy efforts and how you can get involved.
