Simon set to ride from Sydney to Wollongong

Hi Neurospace family,

 

On the 4th of November, I shall be riding 82km from Sydney to Wollongong to raise money for research and support for people with MS.

 

I shall be riding with my wife, her father and brother. It is a cause close to our hearts with both her father and aunty being affected with MS.

 

Her father was diagnosed at age 18. He's one of the relatively lucky sufferers with the milder and most common form of MS - remitting relapsing (RRMS). He'll be cycling with us in November. 

 

His sister, sadly is not well enough to cycle with us. She has a rarer and more aggressive version of the disease - primary progressive (PPMS). About 15% of people with MS have this type. 

We are taking part in the 2018 MS Sydney to the Gong Ride to fight MS.

Multiple sclerosis is the most common disease of the central nervous system in young adults and it strikes young people in the prime of their lives.

Currently, there is no cure.

 

Every working day, 4 Australians are diagnosed with MS and the average age of diagnosis is just 30 years old.  

 

So we're taking on this challenge to ride from Sydney to the Gong to help people living with MS get the support they need to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest.

Please donate now to support our challenge and change the lives of Australians living with multiple sclerosis.

 

Thank you for your support.
