Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially debilitating disease which causes damage to the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, and for which there is no known cure. This is a disease which has closely affected the families of multiple members of our firm here at TDWM, and so, once again, Topel & DiStasi Wealth Management will be sponsoring a team in this year’s Bike MS Waves to Wine charity ride to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society on September 24-25th, 2016.
This event supports cutting-edge research, programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every dollar helps. Every person makes a difference.
Bike MS is a physical challenge for cyclists of every level, but it’s so much more than just a ride. The camaraderie, passion, and memories that come from sharing this experience with our team will stay with us for a lifetime. Bike MS is both a weekend-long and LIFE-long opportunity to make a difference in your own life, and in the works. It’s a group effort that transcends personal accomplishment and touches the lives of the thousands of people affected by MS in our community.
With that in mind, we are reaching out for help in maximizing our effort to support this cause, which can be done in multiple ways.
First, if you are a cycling enthusiast, or know anyone who is, we would love for you to join our team and ride with us in this great event. There is a small fee to register, and each rider is required to raise a minimum of $350 for the cause, but we are planning to have some special incentives for those that participate, including a corporate tent after the first day’s ride with food, drinks and fun!
http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR/Bike/CANBikeEvents?team_id=489617&pg=team&fr_id=27080 will take you to our TDWM team page where you can learn more about the ride details and join the team.
If you are not able to ride with us, but would still like to contribute to the cause, please consider donating to our fundraising efforts.
You can contribute to our fundraising effort by going directly to Gavin’s fundraising page here:
We are extremely excited to be taking part in this event and hope that you will join us in the MS Movement.
