Thank you for your participation in Bike MS 2015! Over 2,600 riders registered in one of our three Bike MS events! You raised over

matter what part you play, you are important in the fight against multiple sclerosis and finding a cure. We couldnâ€™t do this without each of you. Riding, volunteering, and donating make each event successful. We are thankful to our members, friends, corporate partners, and the general public who help us raise the money to move us closer to a world free of MS. Donâ€™t just ride, Bike MS.

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
We needed your help and you showed up! Among our 3 rides we had 329 total volunteers who dedicated 2,776 hours to the cause!
Our events would not be possible without the help of our volunteers! The Ohio Buckeye Chapter hosted 3 successful bike tours in 2015. Each was successful because of the volunteers who took time out of their weekends to support us all in the fight to end multiple sclerosis. The 2015 Bike MS season might be over but the fight isn’t. We still don’t have a cure for MS, so let’s keep raising awareness! Learn more about becoming a volunteer by clicking here or contacting Maureen Mohney at maureen. firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a group interested in volunteering, contact Maureen and she can set up a meeting!
LOCAL AND NATIONAL SPONSOR SHOUT-OUT!
Thank you for your support in 2015!

Each ride in the Bike MS series offers unique local flavor, while maintaining a consistently wellorganized, fully-supported and extraordinary experience. Bike MS brings people together as individuals and as teams to conquer a challenge and share an unforgettable experience with friends, family and coworkersâ€”while raising money to make a difference in the lives of people affected by MS. Bike MS rides attract a range of new and seasoned cyclists who share a love of cycling and helping others. Each ride raises critical funds to drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most. Over 100,000 cyclists come together nationwide each year to fuel their passion for cycling while helping to end MS forever.
