June 7 & 8- bike for a cause
Bike MS is a series of 100 extraordinary cycling events across the county — rides that will take you further than you’ve ever gone before.

- Supporting research and training projects aimed at finding the cause of MS, better treatments and a cure.
- Informing and educating people with MS about a variety of issues through newsletters, publications, education seminars and conferences, and at-home teleconferences.
- Providing direct support and financial assistance for the FDA-approved medications, medical equipment, counseling services, respite, care management, college scholarships, and other emergency assistance.
- Supporting emotional health and physical well-being through a network of self-help groups, a peer support telephone program, wellness programs, wellness grants, exercise classes, retreats, and more!
- Reconnecting families affected by MS by coordinating family and social programs, couples’ retreats, kids’ camp, and other family support programs.
- Stimulating changes in public policy by coordinating a statewide and nationwide Government Relations Committee and providing training and support to our constituents about issues impacting people with MS.
