Help Us in the Fight Against Multiple Sclerosis

Beth Ribblett

Bike MS Louisiana, October 6-7, 2012

We need your help.  And as small business owners, who gets asked for donations on an almost daily basis, we know how hard it can be to give money to every cause you care about.  But this is important as approximately 400,000 Americans have Multiple Sclerosis, and every week about 200 people are diagnosed. World-wide, MS affects about 2.5 million people so chances are you know someone who has been diagnosed with this disease.

We started Team Swirl when one of our friends was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007. We had only 9 people on the team that year, but our enthusiasm towards raising money for this disease has attracted many riders over the years.  By 2011 we were the largest team in the Louisiana tour, 57 members strong, with almost every team member knowing and riding for someone with MS.

There have been significant advances in the treatment of MS in the past few years and we are excited and proud that Team Swirl's  participation in the Louisiana MS 150 has had a direct impact on those developments.  We have raised over $150,000 over the last 4 years and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society uses these funds to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can fight this disease by simply riding a bike, because we have chosen to help thousands of people through a contribution to the MS Bike Tour, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."

On October 6, Team Swirl will ride the Louisiana MS 150 for the sixth year in a row with an even deeper purpose as a team member just got diagnosed this summer.  Please consider helping us reach our fund raising goals as any donation, large or small, gets us closer to a world free of MS.  Help us in raising funds and awareness by clicking on our team personal page link below.
