Streamer cycles for MS research...wanna help?

Greetings!

In just ten short days, I will be cycling 175 miles- taking part in the National MS Foundation's "Bike MS" City to Shore ride from Cherry Hill, NJ to Ocean City, NJ and back.

I ride for many complete strangers suffering from the disease as well as several folks on my wife's side of the family. Most importantly this year, I ride in memory of Lynn's Uncle David who passed away earlier this year from complications with MS.

I am just a bit over $100 from reaching my annual goal of $1000. If you know anyone suffering from this disease, please consider sponsoring me with a donation. If only a few more than 20 people would consider donating $5 to my ride, the goal would be met and we could all feel good about doing what we can to stomp out MS.

Below is a donation link...please share it with everyone you know...I'd be blissfully grateful:

New Jersey, Cherry Hill Bike MS: City to Shore 2013: Mr. Benjamin A. Stiles - National MS Society



Thanks from the bottom of my heart- Ben

Thanks for what you do, Ben. I have an aunt who has suffered from MS for over 30 years and is totally bedridden, two aunts who passed away from MS, and a cousin who also passed away from MS at the age of 40. It's a cause that is dear to my heart.

Thank you!

Thank you, Becky! It seems this MS thing, like our Bambi II thing, is another commonality among our life experiences.

I appreciate your donation! I am thrilled to be so close to meeting my goal. Praying a few more folks donate a few dollars to get me there.

Thanks again!!

Ben

Thank you, DanB. If you wish to PM me the name of our fellow Silver Family member- I will proudly write it on my jersey and ride for them personally.

Thanks for the donation!!!

Yep, Sid- we met our goal and I cycled 181 miles over the two days. Quite an emotional experience! This was my fourth year doing the ride, and it is always amazing how many people come out to support us.

The weather was perfect- a bit windy- but still perfect. A wonderful weekend riding for wonderful people who suffer from a not-so-lovely disease.

I will be doing it again next year- already registered- so I hope I can count on many donations from strangers who share my passions (Airstreams, etc.) as I try to reach $1000 yet again!

Peace- Ben
